SUBJECT: Buying Information on Blink
We are pleased to announce that the Buying tab in Blink, UCSD's online staff resource, is active and includes information on a wide range of purchasing processes and resources, from 'what to buy' to 'how to buy.' The following topics are designed to assist you in getting what you need when you need it:
- "Buying Basics," with information for new and experienced buyers,
including account, commodity, and ship-to codes
And more, including equipment management, invoices, shipping and delivery, and buying help.
To explore the Buying tab, please click on this link:
While this initial release is a milestone in the development of the Buying tab, we look forward to providing additional topics in the coming months. These include controlled substances, laboratory equipment and supplies, laboratory gases (liquefied), and radioactive isotopes.
We welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions for improvement. Please contact our Blink Buying tab liaison, Maire Testa, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
