Interdepartmental request (IR)

The IR form is used to purchase goods and services from various Duke departments, such as printing services, copy centers, etc. Only capital equipment purchases (except 36x and 39x) require the Office of Sponsored Programs’ approval. If you are purchasing capital equipment using federal funds, a screening form must be attached to the IR (please refer to Screening and Shared Use in EQUIPMENT). In addition, if you are having a piece of equipment fabricated in the Physics Instrument Shop, the department must attach the form "Physics Department Instrument Shop Fabrication of Capital Equipment" and use G/L Account 761100 on the IR. This form may be obtained by calling the Physics Department Instrumentation Shop. When the job is completed, Plant Accounting changes the G/L Account to the correct capital equipment G/L Account (66XXXX).
