The MBS Office handles all bills outside of UT Market orders, which are dealt with centrally.  For every invoice or bill that needs to be paid, the MBS Office needs to know the following:

  • The date you received the invoice
  • The date you received the item(s)
  • The account you'd like to charge for the bill

Once you’ve written this information on the bill, please sign and date it.  Afterwards, you can either drop it off in the MBS pickup bin outside your lab or scan and email it directly to MBS Payments for processing.

Shipping by Courier

For same-day pickup, please drop-off your packages at the MBS Office (NMS 3.316) no later than 2:00 PM.  If your package contains dry ice, you must ensure the proper labels are used.  You can locate these labels in the NMS third floor copy room (NMS 3.262).


Every lab has, or can have, its own UPS account.  If you don't have an account, please contact Julie Bowers to set one up.  Benefits to setting up a UPS account include direct billing, no hassle, and no late fees.  To schedule a UPS pickup, call 1-800-742-5877.


FedEx packing labels are located in the MBS Office.  You will need to include your account number on the packing label in the field "Your Internal Billing Reference" (this applies to both US and International Airbills).  To schedule a FedEx pickup, call 1-800-463-3339.  For the MBS FedEx account number, please contact the MBS Office.

If you require same-day pickup after 2:00 PM, you will need to take your item(s) to a FedEx store to be shipped.  Be advised, FedEx stores cannot accept dry ice packages, so plan accordingly.
