The first step when doing business with the University is to complete and submit a Vendor Application and a W-9.
Since the University accepts federal contracts and grants, we are bound by federal purchasing guidelines. To this end we have established a University Purchasing Policy Manual. Vendors should be aware of our terms and conditions, which normally prevail for all University purchases
Since we are a decentralized purchasing organization, payments above $900 are initiated in, and approved by, departmental staff. Invoices may be sent either to A/P or to the individual placing the order. Invoices must reference the University PO number. If a payment is late, the first point of inquiry should be the individual placing the order.
