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.

“Specifically with Airgas, the online ordering process requires every deliver-to location to have an online account. With your help, 630 unique deliver-to locations have been setup for online ordering, and I would like to thank you for your efforts here” said Ron Collins, Executive Director of Procurement. “We also want to encourage anyone who is not using the online ordering process to contact University Purchasing for assistance in transitioning to the new process as soon as possible.”

Effective Oct. 1, Airgas will refer orders placed by phone to University Purchasing for assistance with getting setup for BuyUAB and Airgas online ordering.
