Purchase Orders

Purchase Orders

Authority:

No one may order supplies, materials, equipment, or services worth more than $100 without a purchase order.  Single orders of $100 or less can be reimbursed through petty cash.  The University will assume no other obligation except by purchase order.  Purchasing policies and procedures apply uniformly to all funds administered by the University.   Employees making purchases which exceed $100 without a purchase order may be required to personally pay for the purchase.

All purchase requisitions are entered electronically in the Banner system.  Each requisition is approved by the appropriate budget authority and then forwarded to the Purchasing Department for processing.  A valid purchase order must be prepared before any order can be placed.  A requisition does not serve as an order.
