Several places - use an agreement with Fisher or Aldrich to manage a central stock room - thus Procurement can be involved. We did this both industrially and at a University Level.We use Flynn - and submit POs - but we are really small. But - again we have a central laboratory ordering person.

Subject: Question for the discussion board....Chemical Orders
Our purchasing department is giving us a tough time about ordering chemicals on a pcard (University issued credit card). Does anybody have a policy that they can share with us. Procurement does not want to give up the power because they insist on POs for all orders. The funny thing is that they don't even know what the chemicals are for. We started to move into a centralized stockroom but procurement is on a power trip.
We are open for any suggestions and any sample policies that take place at other universities.
