Purchasing & Reimbursement

The Samueli School Purchasing/Reimbursement Office is striving to place orders within 2-4 business days and initiating reimbursements within 10 business days after receipt. Completed Purchase Request Forms should be submitted electronically to  purchasing@eng.uci.edu  All Purchase requests must have account numbers and PI approval signatures on the form or an approval email before the request is submitted.

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.

All Reimbursement requests submitted electronically to reimbursements@eng.uci.edu

All UCI employees including student employees must have a TEM profile for reimbursements. Here is a link for instruction: Create a TEM Profile
