General Directions


Smart Cart Window Shoppers: Please choose Anna Baumhoer (axb1071) as your approver. Be sure to add correct delivery information and speedtype.

Smart Cart Shoppers: Your requisitions will be routed to the Assistant Directors assigned to your departments for approval.

P-Cards: Employees who have P-cards are responsible to maintain receipts and assigning speedtypes. This will be done electronically on the Bank of America website only. If this is a task you prefer to do on your own, we are happy to come to your office to show you how to access your account information, assign speedtypes and upload receipts. If you prefer to have the purchasing staff manage your reconciliations, you should forward receipts to with the correct speedtype. Electronic copies of all Pcard receipts must be retained for five years per CWRU policy. The Support Services Hub will assume responsibility for retention of any receipts forwarded to them.

Requisitions/Special Orders: Be sure to include the speedtype to be charged and delivery information. If you have a large order with multiple items, please complete the‌ HUB purchasing order form ‌‌and send it to For smaller orders, screenshots can be sent to our purchasing email as well. Or, if you are ordering equipment or other special purchases someone will meet with you in your office to review your request and help with any special requirements.

Travel and Expenses: For CWRU faculty, staff or students, please scan your detailed receipts and send them to along with the speedtype to be charged. If you prefer, someone can come to your office to pick up your receipts. Please email to let us know where to pick them up.

For non-CWRU travelers, please complete the Statement of Travel Form and the Supplier Information form and email them along with detailed receipts and the speedtype to be charged to If you prefer, email us and we will arrange to have your forms and receipts picked up.
