Emergency Procurements

Policy

Approval to issue an emergency purchase order may be granted verbally by the Procurement Director.  Any emergency procurement must then be followed up with a purchase requisition in buyWays.    An emergency purchase is defined as one made necessary by a sudden, unexpected turn of events beyond the control of the department in the normal conduct of its business.  Included are events involving health, welfare, injury or loss to the University which can be rectified only by the immediate purchase of certain services or supplies.
