Large Purchases Policy
Large Purchases are purchases that total to $5000 or more. This total includes shipping, handling, taxes, and any other charge. The following needs to be e-mailed or submitted to Rekha Balasubramanyam for processing:
- Quote from the company/business.
- E-mail confirming the account to be charged.
- Sole source justification if purchase is to be made from non-state contracted vendors. (Justify why a non-state contracted vendor was chosen and if the items are not sold/distributed by other companies in the U.S. Please note that lower price can never be a reason to sole source a purchase in which case the purchase will be put on bid by Purchasing department.)
