Below are the options for ordering in the department. You can use any of these, including combinations of ordering, based on the needs in your lab. If labs fail to follow procedures, options could be restricted for that lab or for the department as a whole.
NOTE: There are different procedures for SRS (grant) and non-SRS accounts. As a PI on an SRS account, you are responsible for ensuring that your orders are compliant with regulations and reconciling any issues that arise. This also could mean that you would need to generate the funds to cover any expenses or return a purchase if an error is made in purchasing or receiving goods.
