Confirming Orders Policy

Requisitions submitted to Contracts and Purchasing Services after the order has been placed with the vendor or after the University has received the products or services are called Confirming Orders.

Confirming orders are not allowed.

There are several potential problems associated with confirming orders; such as:

  • Delays in settlements
  • Lost items
  • Missed discounts
  • Receipt of duplicate shipments
  • Redundant payments
  • Unidentified invoices
  • Violations of legal requirements

Any employee who buys products or services without going through Contracts and Purchasing Services assumes the possibility of personal liability for payment.
