Purchasing & Reimbursement

The Samueli School Purchasing/Reimbursement Office is committed to placing orders within 2-4 business days and initiating reimbursements within 5-10 business days after receipt. Completed Purchase Request Forms may be submitted electronically to purchasing@eng.uci.edu. Although the office will be centrally located in 5200 Engineering Hall, drop boxes will be available in each department office for faculty, staff, and students to place their requests. Materials in the drop boxes will be collected daily and brought to the Purchasing/Reimbursements Office to be processed within 2-4 business days. The requester will receive an e-mail update notifying that the order has been processed. Delays beyond 2-4 days may result when information is not complete or clear on the request form. In such cases, the requester will be notified as soon as possible regarding the need for additional information.
