Purchase Orders can be issued to any vendor in the University database.  iBUY NU is an online marketplace consisting of Northwestern's preferred vendors.  Shoppers fill carts in iBUY and assign those carts to a Requester for processing.  Please email for purchasing from non-iBUY vendors.

New Vendors and Payees

New vendors, independent contractors, and reimbursed visitors must be added to the University vendor database before a payment can be issued. 

Employee Expense Reimbursements

All reimbursements must be supported by documentation.  For conferences, a name badge or program is typically submitted as proof of attendance.  Expenses claimed on a per diem basis must be supported by proof of lodging.
