Radioactive Product Ordering Restrictions

Stanford policy prohibits staff from ordering radioactive products using Stanford Purchasing Cards (PCards). Radioactive products can only be ordered using a Standard Purchase Order placed by an authorized buyer in the Purchasing and Contracts Department or via SmartMart in iProcurement. During the order process, staff members are required to provide a Controlled Radioactive Authorization number obtained from Stanford's Health Physics Inspection Station.

For an explanation of the different order types used at Stanford, see Purchasing Methods Used at Stanford.
