The Purchasing Team at ERI is here to assist you with all of your procurement and shipping requests. With so many regulations surrounding contract and grant funding, it is important that proper procedures are followed. Please contact us if you have questions prior to placing your order- we will work with you to ensure compliance with all regulations.

Please note:

  • Do not phone in or email requests to suppliers for orders without a purchase order (PO) in place. 
  • Hiring someone to perform a service, e.g. maintenance, repair work or consulting, can be a lengthy process and must begin at ERI. If procedures are not followed, we may not be able to pay the supplier and you may be liable for the expense.
  • If a supplier requires a signature on any document, do not sign it. Email the document to purchasing@eri.ucsb.edu for review and next steps.
