Department Purchasing

The majority of purchasing is accomplished using the SciQuest MarketPlace system. The WUSTL Marketplace is a web-based electronic requisition purchasing program. This system is available to everyone in the department.

Each purchase requisition entered into MarketPlace requires a requisitioner approval before it is routed to the financial system. Equipment purchases over $5,000 must be entered directly into the financial system by administrative personnel. Orders submitted with incomplete information require extra work and may require additional time to process. Please provide us the most complete information possible in order to have your order go out in a timely manner.

Radioactive orders must be placed before 9:00 am to be processed that same day. The department purchasing office cannot guarantee same day processing for orders placed after 9:00 am.

For any questions related to purchasing, please email Sarah Piel. Phone: 314-362-6949
