What are some key takeaways of the purchasing policy?
Requisitions, and subsequent purchase orders, must be created in FlashCart if a good order (tangible item) is $2,500 or more.
Purchases of goods, using a single vendor or the annual accumulation with said vendor, $25,000 or more must be bid.
Requisitions, and subsequent purchase orders, must be created in FlashCart if a service order is $50,000 or more. Additionally, if the service is $50,000 or more using a single vendor or the annual accumulation with said vendor, it must also bid.
Any purchase $100,000 or more, using a single vendor, will need SVP Finance and Administration as well as Division VP approval.
Any purchase $1,000,000 or more through the length of the contract will need Board of Trustees approval.
University-required contracts must be used, no exceptions. These suppliers are listed on the Procurement website by commodity. If the specified vendor(s) in each of these categories does not have your item or service, contact email@example.com for additional guidance and support.
