Purchasing Policies

To better serve the campus community, the College has established a series of cost saving policies and procedures for the most commonly purchased goods and services.  

The object of these policies is to:

  • Competitively bid more goods and services to achieve the best price and quality of service
  • To reduce the number of vendors used to purchase the same products
  • To reduce the number of check requisitions that are processed and the number of checks written
  • To reduce late fees, missed cash discounts, and sales tax payments
  • To increase the use of purchasing consortiums to take advantage of volume discounts
  • To establish clear guidelines and uniform purchasing practices throughout the campus community.

Please see the Procedures section on Requesting a Purchase Order

Purchasing: Printers for Computers

All printers should be purchased through Information Services and not on College credit cards or with personal credit cards.  The College will not reimburse purchases of printers on personal credit cards.  All computer printers must be purchased with a Purchase Order.  Please contact the Associate Director, Technical and Media Services, for more information and to obtain a purchase order number.

Due to the additional cost of color printing, College policy prohibits the purchase of color printers for departmental use, except for certain approved areas.  Departments are strongly encouraged to electronically submit color printing work to the Copy Center.
