Southern Illinois University utilizes an IPHEC (Illinois Procurement of Higher Education Consortium) contract to purchase lab supplies from Fisher Scientific. This allows for the purchase of supplies without having to seek competitive bids regardless of the dollar amount.
Department should obtain on-line University pricing through Fisher Scientific's web site.
- Initial contact on this web site will require a registration process to facilitate future log-ons. Requestor's name and a password of their choice will be required for registration.
- Web searches may be conducted in a variety of methods, including product and/or catalog number.
University pricing may also be obtained through the local Fisher representative – Joe Ahearn at firstname.lastname@example.org or (314) 276-2719 or customer service (800) 766-7000.
Department should receive written price verification by printing web site pricing or receiving an e-mail or faxed quote from the local Fisher Representative. Department should forward this price verification, along with completed Purchase Requisition, to Procurement Services.
Procurement Services will convert the Purchase Requisition into a Purchase Order and fax to Fisher Scientific.
