Purchasing

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/
