I need to purchase 2 Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA VCU118 Evaluation Kits
I was told that if I post my request here, someone would reach out to me.
I can be contacted at email@example.com

Would you refer the following URL to purchase two Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA VCU118 Evaluation Kits ?
But, because of sold out, you wait for ten weeks.

I am not sure who told you that if you post the question on the forums you would get contacted by a sales person. This is not correct.
You need to contact one of our Authorized Distributors, select one from your region.

Hello firstname.lastname@example.org ,
If you would like to buy directly from Xilinx, please visit this link: https://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/vcu118.If html
If needed, these are also available from here: https://www.newark.com/xilinx/ek-u1-vcu118-g/evaluation-kit-virtex-ultrascale/dp/42AC9946
Also, as a suggestion, since you are from an University, you can also contact Xilinx University Program (email@example.com) and see if they can help you out in obtaining these kits.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, Anatoli.
Reached out twice to the Xilinx University Program folks and got no response.
I really need a salesperson to prepare a quote for me so I can send it through the campus purchasing system.
The single daily purchase limit on my university credit card is $5k and this kit is $7k (and I want 2) so the "buy online" option fails.
Seems crazy that there isn't an actual person who can prepare a quote for me.
The resellers are all out of stock until mid December (or 2020 in another case) and $1k more expensive.
