The following action steps of procurement serve as a guideline to the initiator and the buyer responsible for the purchase of goods and services. They are divided by responsibility below: Requester Requester Clearly identify the goods or services needed. Place your order directly with the vendor using the University's BuySite system. For purchases less than $10,000 document the price in the BuySite requisition; attach the price quote or indicate in the internal notes section of the requisition the source of the price (verbal quote, online catalog, etc). For purchases between $10,000 - $150,000 document competitive price quotations or sole source justification along with the price reasonableness of your purchase decision by completing the Source and Price Reasonableness Form. Explain in brief detail the vendor sources you considered, the prices that were offered and the features or benefits of the goods that influenced your decision if you did not choose the lowest price available. Attach the completed form to your BuySite Requisition. For more information, see Procedure 5.062: Price Reasonableness by Price Analysis Methods for Purchases Greater than $10,000. For purchases greater than $150,000, engage Procurement Services for assistance and direction by submitting a Procurement Project Review Request. For additional information, see Procedure 5.058: Purchase Order Issuance. Your approved BuySite requisition will result in a University Purchase Order being issued to a vendor. Only after a purchase order is issued will the University accept payment responsibility for those products or services. You, as an individual, cannot contractually bind the University for the purchase of any goods or services. Do not authorize deliveries or accept services until you are certain that the purchase order has been issued. In case of an emergency, contact Shared Services for assistance in arranging authorization for needed goods and services. Approver Approver It is the responsibility of the FAS Authorized signer to review the requisition submitted through BuySite. The authorized signer should consider if the budget is available and the appropriateness of the purchase.
