A reminder to all University employees that the UND Conflict of Interest policy requires all employees who currently have a business interest in a business entity, or whose spouse, child, sibling, parent, or relative-in-law has a business interest in a business entity that currently does business with the University, or could potentially do business with the University, must complete the “Notification of Business Interest” form and submit it to the Purchasing Office.
Departments should disregard/destroy any credit card offers from vendors (Example: Target, MilesOne Business Platinum Visa, Sears, and Lowes Home Improvement Stores). Department personnel are not authorized to enter into any credit card agreements that are not administered by UND.
UND only supports the “MasterCard” purchasing card and the “Visa” travel card.
To obtain a purchasing card:
▪ Contact Janelle McGarry, Purchasing, at 777-3881
▪ Submit to Purchasing, the Purchasing Card Application Form (located at http://www.und.nodak.edu/dept/purchase/index.html select “Forms”)
▪ Attend a REQUIRED purchasing card training session PRIOR to receiving your purchasing card
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 cannot 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.
Any concerns or questions regarding the policies and procedures can be directed to Scott Schreiner at 777-2681.
