(Not a Purchasing Function)
Some materials (cell lines, mice, etc.) are not available to purchase; instead,
the supplier transfers the material to us under the terms of a Material Transfer
Agreement (MTA) whether ordered online or by a formal agreement.
Contacts for questions: Technology Transfer Branch (TTB), x5465, for NCI investigators;
Claudia Haywood, x6308 for Leidos investigators; Accounts Payable,
x5638, for Direct Payment.
Note: Accounts Payable only arranges for the payment and
does not place the "order".
Payments to suppliers of materials obtained through Material Transfer Agreements
whether ordered online or by a formal agreement, are handled by utilizing either
1) the procurement card process or 2) a direct payment form that is sent to Accounts Payable to
cut a check. The MTA Direct Payment Form is located on the Forms webpage, http://ncifrederick.cancer.gov/Cad/Forms.aspx. Information and instructions for the form are provided on the second
page for your convenience.
