Blanket Purchase Contracts have been established for laboratory supplies, apparatus, glassware, chemicals, and reagents which allow for faster delivery. Requesters are required to check the vendor catalogs for the vendors listed below.

  1. VWR Scientific Company (large business)
  2. Thomas Scientific (small business)

Blanket orders may be placed by the program areas, or purchase requests may be submitted providing the following information:

  • vendor name
  • catalog number
  • item description
  • quantity needed

(Vendor catalogs are available from the Central Supply Warehouse upon request.)

A PR submitted for these categories of items from vendors other than the contract vendors will be cross referenced against the established contracts. If the item under the subcontract is different than requested, the requester will be notified for approval prior to placing the order. Otherwise, the order will be placed without notice.
