Placing an order

To place an order with Boise Cascade, use the pre-numbered Macquarie University customised order form in conjunction with the Catalogue and Price List. (Do not use Finance One or the obsolete Store Requisition Forms). Financial unit administrators can obtain pre-numbered forms from the Purchasing section.

The most commonly used Macquarie University products are listed individually on the pre-numbered order form and are ordered by completing the quantity required against each item.

For convenience, the products are grouped together in categories on the order form.

Products not listed can be ordered using the Other Items section on the last page of the form.

Ensure that you fill out the order header on the top of each page to be faxed, ensuring all required information is provided and the order form is authorised by an officer with sufficient financial authority.

On the order form the following details are listed:

Item on order form Meaning
Product code As per catalogue
Product description including size and colours
Unit of issue For example,  Each, Packet of 4, Box. This is the minimum unit of sale for the product. If the unit of issue is, for example, packet or box, the product can only be supplied packaged as described, that is, the pack cannot be split.
Quantity Number of units of issue. For example, if you want 12 items that are packaged as 4 to a box, order 3 boxes not 12 items.

Completed order forms are to be faxed in accordance with University arrangements to (02) 9644 3315. Telephone orders are not accepted.

Where a product in the University agreement is temporarily out of stock, an equivalent or superior product is automatically supplied for the same price or lower if available. If a substitution is not acceptable, you must note this on the order form.
