Purchase Request Policy

Numerous purchase requests and calls are being made to the Foundation for emergencies. These emergencies are creating unnecessary delays in processing of purchases orders for departments submitting their purchase requests in a timely manner. The following policy has been approved in order to avoid an increase of administrative fees as well as avoiding an increase of additional staff to process the emergencies.

Policy: To maximize and provide efficient and timely service to all departments, the foundation can no longer honor requests for emergencies. All purchase requests will be processed within three working days. Therefore, with careful planning and cooperation from the departments, we can keep expenses to a minimum.

The purchase request form is a request submitted by a department requesting a purchase order to purchase items from a budget or fund account.

The purchase request form is not an obligation. The purchase order issued by the foundation obligates the foundation to the vendor.
