Non Conforming Purchases Ratification

When an individual, without benefit of the P-Card and without submitting a purchase requisition to the Procurement office prior to making a purchase, commits the College to an obligation by ordering or receiving goods or services under the small purchase limit of $10,000, it is a non-conforming purchase. Purchases under $2,500 have been delegated to P-Card holders as long as they are made with a purchasing card. The purchasing card has pre-set limitations regarding disallowed commodities as well as dollar thresholds programmatically aiding in preventing the purchase of non-allowable commodities. It is the P-Card user’s responsibility to verify that a vendor accepts a purchasing card prior to making a purchase. Purchases between $2500 - $10,000 require a requisition be submitted prior to the purchase.
