Once you've confirmed that there is a clear business purpose to your expenditure, it is allowable by UC and Law School policy, and you have funds available to cover the cost, you are ready to submit your order.
Reimbursements must be submitted within 30 days of the event,
or will be considered taxable income!
If you would like to order or get reimbursed for any (non-food) goods, supplies, or services using your university-held funds, you'll find information here: Journal Reference Site > Business | Finance > Non-Food Purchasing + Reimbursement
OfficeMax is a contract supplier of office supplies to the University, meaning that we receive special pricing discounts. Journals can take advantage of this discount, while at the same time having supplies paid directly using your university funds.
Services require PRE-APPROVAL before you have someone begin doing work for you. A purchase order (or payment guarantee) is required ahead of time, or you risk the possibility of your vendor not getting paid.
Some typical services journals utilize include (but are not limited to): website development, poster design, t-shirt printing, transcription, photographers
There are a number of forms potential vendors must fill out, and must also have proof or insurance in order to be paid by the University. You must check in with the Journal Administrator BEFORE you plan on having any services provided for your journal if you want your vendor to be paid, or you may be responsible for paying out of pocket.
Start off by obtaining a price quotation from your preferred vendor for the services you'd like, and submiting it to Journals@law.berkeley.edu
