603 Blanket Purchase Orders
On a limited basis, blanket purchase orders are granted to departments for a designated time period. These purchase orders are designed for frequent ordering, receiving and billing from a single vendor during this time frame. Typically these vendors will not accept payment via University issued purchasing card. Items purchased are low in unit price, have numerous product or part numbers, and usage patterns for single items are erratic and non-repetitive by nature, which do not lend themselves to bidding.
Requests for blanket purchase orders exceeding $10,000 must be bid or must include a justification for sole source .
