Yale Affiliates

Provide a PTAEO. If you do not have access to this information please ask your PI or Business Office.

A Project-Task-Award-Expenditure-Organization (PTAEO) follows this format:


PTAEO’s are assigned to every distinct award/fund/grant, at Yale that needs its own budget. This number is unique to your project and is used on forms and in correspondence with your Department Business Office to make sure money gets deducted from the correct account. You’re only given the Project, Task, Award, and Organization components of the number. The Expenditure Code is determined by the services requested, our expenditure code is 833695 - Lab Services-Non Patient.


External Affiliates- We do not accept Credit Cards as a form of payment.

Establish a Purchase Order (PO) through your Business Office. If our Facility is an approved Vendor you’ll simply need to ask for a PO. Think of a PO like a validation code, most Universities require them, a PO insures 1) that your University allows you to do Business with us (they have all of our tax information), and 2) that funds are available from the source that you’ve designated.

If we need to be set up as a Vendor in your Institutions system, provide your Business or Procurement Office with a copy of our W-9 (PDF).

Federal Employer ID # 06-0646973
CT Tax Registration # 0497099-000
Exemption Permit # E00015

So what do you do with this magic PO Number? When Orders are submitted through GeneSifter, we require this PO number to complete the submission (this way we make sure you’ve done your Homework-see paragraph above). Once the Order is complete an Invoice is generated, the invoice will reference the PO.

The invoice is then emailed to the designated party (the Bill to e-mail address- provided by you in GeneSifter and saved as a default for future use) and then this party has to submit the Invoice to a Business Office or Accounts Payable Department with approval to pay the invoice. At that time a check is cut or an electronic funds transfer is sent to us.

Finally (after all that work!!) we receive the payment, apply it to the invoice and the invoice is marked as complete.
