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.
