Primary Contact for Purchasing: John Burmaster
The Center for Limnology must comply with all applicable UW-Madison and State of Wisconsin purchasing policy.
Before you purchase ANY items, talk to John Burmaster or one of the other administrative staff (Kelly O’Ferrell or Alyssa Luckey Winters). For a summary of the purchasing processes, you may visit the Division of Business Services for information: https://businessservices.wisc.edu/purchasing/
Some items are available through standing contracts with vendors. One place to access these vendors is by using Shop@UW: https://shopuw.wisc.edu/. Certain transactions may be authorized on the department credit card and others may require a requisition and the involvement of an authorized UW purchasing agent. Check with John Burmaster about the process you will need to follow.
The UW-Madison is tax exempt. Be sure that any purchases are made using the tax exempt status. The tax exempt certificate and related information can be found on the UW-Madison Business Services page: https://businessservices.wisc.edu/documents/sales-tax-exempt-certificate/
