A purchase order (or “PO”) is only required for customers from outside the UC system. Please email the POs to both Jen Stevens at our Business Office (JenStevens@ucdavis.edu) and us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A purchase order is a simple letter from your financial administrators listing the requested services and prices.
It has to include the full contact information of your financial administrators as well as the name and institution of the Principal Investigator (“PI”).
The PO has to state the specific services requested from us – essentially repeating the information provided in quotes from us or from the recharge rate listing from our webpage.
POs should have an ID number on them which your administration can generate according to their preferences.
Please feel free to use your standard PO forms. This purchase order template, with all the required and suggested fields, is a suggestion: http://dnatech.genomecenter.ucdavis.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/purchase-order-DNATech3.docx
