and class

following circumstances:
 DSR grants an exemption
 No alternative fuel vehicle exists within the vehicle type and class
needed
NOTE: The purchase of used vehicles will also adhere to this directive
34
MY USF TIPS
 Make sure the Description contains everything the Vendor needs to
know
 Write the Requisition number on all quotes & back-up materials
 When entering requisition, don’t forget to check the “send to vendor”
box in header comments so that important comments to vendors will
print on your purchase order.
 Remember: Some categories route requisitions to different
purchasing agents that would be assigned to your department or the
commodity or service that you are purchasing. Do not insert the
buyer’s name when entering requisitions. If you copy a requisition,
you should also remember to delete the buyer’s name.
35
MY USF TIPS (cont’d)
 Select “SPL” when creating requisitions for Contractual Services
 Ensure that you designate distribution by amount vs. quantity
 OCO & Expense items should be listed on separate line items on
the requisition.
 The contact name, location, Bldg., and room # must be placed in the
Header Comments of the requisition and the “send to vendor” box must
be checked so that this information prints on the PO. Property personnel
use this information identified on the po’s to easily locate the OCO items
for tagging/decaling purposes.
36
CONFIRMATION ORDERS
DEFINITION:
When product/services are received and no PO is in place
 Bad Business Practice
 University isn’t covered by terms & conditions
 Vendor waits for payment
 Provide after-the-fact justification by notating in “Header Comments” why a
requisition wasn’t created prior to ordering
 Insert the following in Header Comments: “Confirming Order – Do Not
Duplicate”. Remember to check the “send to vendor” box to ensure that
this comment is printed on the PO.
37
AMOUNT ONLY PO’S
DEFINITION:
 Amount only PO’s do not provide detailed purchasing
information. The University ‘s use of them will limit Purchasing
and Property Services’ ability to negotiate the best possible
prices from our Vendors.
 NOTE: Purchasing Cards should be used in lieu of Amount
Only PO’s whenever feasible.
38
AMOUNT ONLY PO’S (cont’d)
Limited to 1 year
$1,000 minimum to open
Need the beginning & ending dates
Not to exceed $50,000 unless covered by University
or State contract or sole source
List at least 3 examples of items to be bought
Include authorized department personnel
39
CHANGE ORDERS
 Change Orders should be submitted to Purchasing by fax @ 974-5362 or scan
& email to the Purchasing Agent that issued the Purchase order
 A change request to a PO is only done to change the following:
 Description
 Quantity
 Unit Price
 Due Date
 Delivery Locations
 Fund
 Account
OR
 Cancel the PO before it’s received or vouchered
 All Change Orders must be signed by the accountable officer.
