Quartzy and BearBuy

Jump to: navigation, search

Compounds are typically ordered by adding requests on quartzy.com. Once the request is approved, the order is placed on BearBuy (by the lab manager). Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Placing requests and adding new vendors to BearBuy

1) Whenever possible, if the lab still uses Quartzy, please enter (not place orders via Quartzy) your orders in Quartzy vs sending them directly to the lab manager (Henry). Entering it in Quartzy will help keep track of the whereabouts of the compounds you are ordering (qty, location, etc). Henry will check Quartzy & place your orders.

2) If a vendor is not set up in BearBuy, have the vendor complete the W-8BEN-E form (for international vendors), or, the W-8BEN form (for domestic vendors). To check whether a vendor is setup in BearBuy, login via MyAccess and search through the suppliers. The W8 forms are available from the purchasing manager Matthew Denny (matt.denny@ucsf.edu). Forward the completed form to Yvonne or Matt Denny so the vendor can be set up in BearBuy.

3) Please DO NOT place orders w/o PO #s, or, have vendors invoice UCSF w/o a PO #. An order, or, invoice w/o a PO # causes problems w/ purchasing & accounting. Don't place orders w/o PO #s. If you have an urgent order, you will still need a PO to place it. If necessary, consult Matt Denny (matt.denny@ucsf.edu) on how to best place/expedite urgent orders, or, if you have any questions about purchasing.
