Quartzy is already in the purchasing system at Northwestern! After accepting a quote or requesting an item from the Quartzy Shop, follow the instructions for purchasing the item in NU Financials "Special Request" workflow. 

1. Make sure the preferred payment method for your Lab is Other.


2. Click on the cart icon in the top right of the toolbar to view pending orders.


3. Select Print Quote and all items currently in the Cart will be transferred to a downloaded PDF file to be attached to your order in NU Financials.


Alternatively if ordering a single item, referencing the Quartzy item quote number (starts with EQ) in the description field along with the item description would eliminate the need to attach a quote for your order.

If ordering multiple items, continue adding items and Add to Cart.

8. Once all items are entered, click the Checkout button.

9. Add shipping and financial details to the requisition and proceed to Checkout and Review.  Under Comments, click the Add button to attach the Quartzy quote.


10.  Create a comment to reference the attachment and check the Send to Supplier box.  Click the Add Attachments button, upload the Quartzy quote and check the Send to Supplier box.  Important: both boxes need to be checked to ensure Quartzy receives the notes and the quote attachment.
