If you need to place an order or get reimbursed with UC funds, first inquire with the PI or your advisor (whomever is authorized to oversee the funds). Then log into BearBuy, Cal’s online purchasing system. If you are a first-time user, it is recommended you take the online training course and speak with John Stenske (jstenske[at]berkeley.edu), MVZ’s financial analyst.
