|Note purchasing department requirements|
Please forward this to all individuals within your department that are authorized to make purchases and approve purchases.
The purchasing department is required to be involved in any purchase greater than $5,000. This pertains to the entire cost of purchasing the item(s) including freight. Orders can not be artificially divided to fall under the $5,000 threshold.
Printing is the exception to this requirement. The purchasing department must be involved in all printing that is produced off-campus regardless of the cost.
Contact the purchasing department once you have identified your item(s) and determined the approximate cost of the purchase. The purchasing department is required to submit all requests to the vendors if the purchase is expected to be over $5,000.
Contact our office with questions at 777-2681.
