UAB Facilitiescylinders and UAB Financial Affairs partnered in 2019 to pilot a new online ordering process via BuyUAB for Airgas orders. The pilot was successful and in August 2020 a phased implementation began to transition all campus Airgas orders to the new online ordering process. This online ordering method enables UAB to better track total spend, monitor returns of rented equipment, and more effectively estimate budgets. Effective Oct. 1, all orders must be placed online via the BuyUAB Airgas catalog.

Airgas imageUAB Facilities and UAB Financial Affairs have partnered to streamline purchasing items from Airgas and roll it into the BuyUAB website. This partnership has been successful with a pilot program of labs on campus using the process for the past several months. The process is now being launched campuswide.

In the past, orders to Airgas were placed by phone call, with no tracking ability or order confirmations. Now all orders should be placed on the BuyUAB website using a P-Card.
