Statement of Policy

The Purchasing Office will expedite an order when a completed purchase requisition is faxed to the office or an electronic requisition is received. The approved purchase order will be faxed to the vendor usually the same day. Expedited purchases from local suppliers require an "Authorization to Expedite Purchase" to hand deliver to the supplier. A purchase order number must be requested from the Purchasing Office and a completed purchase requisition must be submitted after the material is received. Offices are encouraged to call the supplier to confirm the material is available. If material is unavailable or if supplier is required to deliver, then a purchase requisition must be faxed to purchasing.
