Purchase orders (POs)
UT System Small Purchase Order Requisition Guidelines
A “Small Purchase Order” is utilized in the following scenarios:
- When purchasing goods and services valued at between $1,000.00 and $5,000.00.
- When a vendor does not accept credit card payments for goods/ services below $1,000.00
- If the goods or services meet the above criteria and are not on the Products and services not requiring a Purchase Order list.
Small Purchase Orders do not require bidding from multiple sources (you select the qualified vendor of your choice). Multiple bidding is strongly encouraged to ensure best pricing/value. For more information, visit bidding procedures.
