State and federal regulations require that the University protect the ethyl alcohol supply and submit periodic reports on the quantity of ethyl alcohol used.
Departments must establish a requisition account with University Stores to purchase ethyl alcohol. Complete an Interdepartmental Requisition and Invoice (IRI) with the appropriate budget coding to establish an account. See 70.05. Indicate on the IRI that the account is for ethyl alcohol purchases.
Deliver the IRI by hand, mail (mail code 7100), or fax to University Stores; fax 335-4588.
