If you are going to make a purchase as a member of staff at the Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering, you can find help and guidance here.

Aarhus University has entered into a number of purchasing agreements with various suppliers. Please note that all purchases must be made in accordance with the university’s purchasing agreements. You can find a complete list of approved suppliers here:


You must always have the expense approved by the project leader or head of section before you make the purchase.

Guidance to purchases

Before you make a purchase, you must collect the approval of your supervisor/project manager. Then you can make the purchase.

Please note that this information must be stated on the invoice from the supplier:

  • EAN number 5798000433823
  • name of the person making the purchase
  • project and activity number

100.000 DKKR limit

When making a purchase that is not covered by an agreement, you have to contact Procurement, if the amount exceeds 100.000 DKKR ex. VAT. If the amount is less than 100.000 DKKR, you must collect 2-3 offers and choose the one that best suits your criteria regarding quality, function and price (among other things). Retrieval of offers can be via e-mail, telephone or website search.

You must be able to document that you have searched the market, e.g. by an e-mail sent to yourself with your notes and criteria, or – even better – by journalising it.
