Assuring Research Mission Success

Attracting and retaining the best and brightest talent in the world may be just as important as managing costs and expenses when your research mission is on the line.

Outstanding managers are constantly searching for ways to do both. Fortunately, you can help preserve all your precious resources with one good management decision.


IntraMalls Assurance Services preserve human and financial resources when managing procurements in support of your research mission. IntraMalls got started back in 1995 when the National Institutes of Health recognized the need to speed the acquisition and receiving of research materials for themselves and many thousands of NIH Grant Recepients throughout the world.

Too many research organizations have suffered unintended consequences from adopting purchase cards as a vehicle to speed the acquisition cycle and lower the administrative cost of processing small procurements.

IntraMalls Assurance Services streamline procurement of mission critical goods and services while reducing frustrations for your technical staff. IntraMalls eases the burdens surrounding traditional purchase card activity, satisfies research project management and audit requirements AND generates substantial administrative cost savings.

IntraMalls enhance micro-purchase programs through assurance services surrounding your existing Purchase Card ("P-card") processes. IntraMalls add vital assurances beginning with comprehensive catalog sourcing and continuing through Level III Card reconciliation and administrative review.

Since 1998, IntraMalls has been delivering on the promise of today’s E-commerce initiatives by enabling our Research clients to:
