Information about Purchase Orders (PO)

What is a PO?

A Purchase Order (PO) is an official commercial document issued by a buyer to a seller, listing requested items and their prices. Organizations often use POs to allocate funds for payment after requested goods are received. They are used by organizations to control the purchasing of products and services from external suppliers.

Example of a PO

Purchasing Agents

Purchasing Agents are able to place orders on behalf of scientists. They will need to list the scientist and PI requesting the materials, but can include the purchasing department’s email address in the Contact section of the order. This will ensure that the MTA document is generated correctly, while allowing the Purchasing agent to be copied into all order emails. When the order ships, they will receive a Shipping Notification with the tracking number for the materials. To avoid duplicate orders, we ask that scientists coordinate with purchasing agents to determine who is to place the order online.

Information Required to Place an Order

To place an order, you will need:

  • The name and email address of the Recipient Scientist who will be using the products

  • The name of the Principal Investigator (PI) whose lab will be using the products

  • The name or catalogue item number of the products to be ordered

  • Payment information (credit card or purchase order number)

  • The shipping and billing addresses        

Terms and Conditions for Payment by Purchase Order

The Purchase Order (PO) must be authorized by your organization’s purchasing department with funds available to facilitate payment of your order.

An invoice referencing the PO Number will be generated after the order has shipped and mailed to the Billing Address entered during checkout for payment.

Payment terms are Net 45 days from the Invoice Date.
