The purpose of the Procurement Policy is to ensure consistent purchasing practices across the college while preserving organizational and financial accountability. This policy applies to anyone spending Canisius College funds, including faculty, administrators, staff and students. Canisius funds include grants, agency funds and other sources, which are all under our financial reporting.
Here are important points to keep in mind:
- A purchase order is required prior to ordering goods and services with a value of $1,000 or greater.
- A valid purchase order number must appear on the vendor’s invoice.
- To obtain a purchase order, create a purchase requisition in BANNER. A purchase requisition must be approved at the appropriate level in the spending approval hierarchy before it is converted to a purchase order.
- VISA purchasing cards are used for purchasing goods or services with a value of less than $1,000 and travel related expenses.
