Emergency orders are authorized only in the event of life, health, or property threatening situations.
Any emergency commitments made by a department must be made known to Purchasing at the earliest opportunity. Such commitments must be for valid emergencies only and must fit the definition described above.
Important: If you misrepresent an emergency situation, SJSU and/or the state can seek personal liability damages from you.
Even with the best planning, unexpected needs arise. Rush orders are those products or services needed immediately, but are not life, health or property threatening situations.
