Ethyl alcohol is available tax-free for research purposes and can be ordered through UI Employee Self Service, using the Purchasing Department's Preqs-Inventory Catalog order system. To order from the catalog, users must first request catalog access by submitting an online Access Request Form from the Preqs main menu. In addition to the Access Request Form, the requestor/department head must complete and submit an Alcohol Statement of Use form, which can be obtained from UI Pharmaceuticals or from the e-forms directory. When both forms have been approved by UI Pharmaceuticals and Purchasing, orders can be placed and the procedure is similar to that used in orders for General Stores, OfficeMax, or Processed Stores.
Orders need to be received by 8 a.m. Wednesday for delivery/pick-up the same week. Deliveries to requestors/departments within the health sciences complex (e.g., UIHC, DSB, BSB, MERF, EMRB, ML, CBRB, etc.) will be made by UI Pharmaceutical staff. Deliveries outside the health sciences complex will be made by General Stores according to driver/schedule availability. Pick-up orders are available between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Wednesday or by special arrangement.
