Chapter 22. Purchasing
Section 22.1. Purchasing Guidelines
Unauthorized Purchase: Any negotiation by an individual not specifically authorized to do so by the president, provost and vice president for academic affairs, chief financial officer, controller, or the manager of Purchasing, to enter into a purchase contract, or in any way obligate the University. The individual may encounter a personal obligation to the vendor.
Confirming Order: A transaction after the purchase has occurred.
With the exception of petty cash and the purchasing credit card, all purchases chargeable to the University must be authorized by an official University purchase order signed by the manager of Purchasing. A purchase transaction should not occur prior to the receipt of a purchase order or purchase order number by the vendor.
Exclusive of the petty cash procedures, the University does not reimburse employees for purchases unless previous arrangements have been made with their financial manager, department chair or director, or manager of Purchasing.
