To submit a request for purchasing, non-travel and entertainment reimbursements, and recharges.

ACT's Responsibility

Target Processing Time

Once customer's responsibility has been met, ACT has 2 business days to place order with vendor or submit requisition to Procurement Services for processing.

Next Steps in the Process



ServiceNow tickets are closed once the order has been accepted by the vendor and our customer is notified.

If items are not received timely, please contact ACT.

Processing times are directed towards ACT's efforts only and do not include time waiting for approvals, waiting for additional information from customers/vendors, central offices processing times, and UCLA processing times.
