Staff and students are required to complete an internal requisition form for all purchases (including IT items such as hardware, software and accessories) as they are required for reconciling accounts. This must include the following:

The white and blue copies of the requisition form are then given to Paul Wotley (for non-IT items) or Kevin Shanahan (for IT items).

Goods Obtained From Store Stock
The store currently stocks a large selection of laboratory consumables, chemicals, nitrogen cylinders, stationery, computer consumables, paper and protective wear. Staff and students are required to complete an internal requisition form for all goods obtained from store stock. This must include the following:

The cost is deducted from the relevant cost centre at the end of each month.

Gas Cylinders
Supplies of "G" size HP Nitrogen are kept as store stock (refer to "goods obtained from store stock") but any other gases need to be ordered by Paul Wotley as per normal purchasing procedures. Note that BOC charge a rental fee for all cylinders from the time of the initial purchase until such time as the cylinders are returned to them. This charge is deducted monthly from the cost centre indicated in the initial purchase of the cylinder. Please return all cylinders that are empty or no longer required to The Wark store in Building R.

Liquid Nitrogen
The key to the bulk liquid nitrogen tank is available from any member of Scientific Services (Q2-02). For safety reasons, only persons who have undergone training by BOC are permitted to access the bulk liquid nitrogen tank.

The key to access the dewer from the Instrument Lab (IW1-3) can also be obtained from any member of Scientific Services (Q2-02). A short test to assess the risk of using liquid nitrogen must first be completed before the key is obtained. The following information will then need to be completed in the log:

The cost will then be deducted from the relevant cost centre on a regular basis.

External Services
Staff and students must obtain an order number from Tracy Greeneklee or Christina Koutlakis before any external work can be undertaken. This includes all services for which we will be charged. You will need to advise Tracy or Christina of the name of company providing the service, the cost centre it is to be paid from, and an approximate cost. Any invoices received that do not contain this order number will be deemed to be a personal expense of the person concerned. All invoices should be forwarded to Tracy or Christina (or email: iwriaccounts@unisa.edu.au) for payment. Also a Request for an invoice form must be completed if any of the charges are to be invoiced to a third party. 

Freight/Courier Services
Please see Paul Wotley (R1-21) for the necessary paperwork that needs to be completed. A cost centre code is required.

Petty Cash
Purchases of up to $50-00 can be claimed from petty cash. The original paperwork needs to be given to Tracy or Christina who will assist you in completing the relevant paperwork. All petty cash receipts must contain the company's name, ABN and full details of any GST paid. The original documents and petty cash voucher then need to be photocopied and the photocopy given to Tracy or Christina. The originals can then be taken to Campus Central for a cash reimbursement.

For purchases in excess of $50-00 please see Tracy or Christina to obtain the relevant paperwork.

Accounts Payable
All invoices or delivery dockets (paid and unpaid) should be forwarded to either Tracy or Christina (or email: iwriaccounts@unisa.edu.au) for processing. 

Accounts Receivable
