Wal-Mart requires the use of a tax exempt ID card for university purchasing cardholders making purchases at their store. Presenting this card to their cashiers should enable them to input your purchase without adding sales tax.
Please contact Evanna Nolte if you need a card or have any issues when using it, x4313 or email@example.com
Departments who have surplus furniture or equipment are reminded to please contact the Procurement Department to initiate their removal and disposition. Please see our website for additional information on the surplus move process as well as policies and procedures. Thank you.
We have implemented new reminder functionality for requisitioners when purchase requisitions have been on hold for more than a week. Users will receive an email message similar to the one shown below and can take the requisite action accordingly as needed.
