Please type in as much detail as you can provide. For instance, if you are considering a specific product, you could enter a web link to the product you are interested in.
The green number under Total shows the total cost of the products for which you entered quantities, including any accessories or upgrades you included.
Please enter the funding information you want to use to make the purchase. If you do not have the funding information, please indicate who we can contact to get this information in the "additional info" box above.

Approval to order
In the Approval to Order section, select whether you are ready for the order to be placed right away. If not, you can select "Contact me for further consultation."
Please note that each UWM business unit can establish its own approval processes for purchases. Even if you select "Yes, place the order as quoted," we will still go through any approval process established by the unit before submitting the order.
In the "upload supporting documentation" section, you may add a file to provide additional information. Examples might include a spreadsheet of existing inventory being replaced with this purchase request.
Click the Submit Request button when you are ready. The email address you entered at the top will receive a confirmation email within a few minutes. The confirmation email will include your Incident Number.
If you do not receive the confirmation email within a few minutes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Help Desk at (414)229-4040 to report the problem.
Once you have submitted your request, you will be contacted by IT staff to gather further information or approvals if necessary. When your order is placed, you will receive a copy of the order confirmation(s) for your records. A new request will be opened in your name after the purchased products arrive. The new request will be used to coordinate the deployment or installation of your new product.
