Procurement Services

Purchasing Basics

In general, University departments have been delegated authority to make purchases of goods and/or services costing less than $5,000.00, such as equipment and supplies. This dollar delegation allows departments to expedite the purchase of goods without having to process the request through the the Procurement Office. All purchases over $5,000.00 are to be forwarded to the Procurement Office for processing.
