Procedures have been developed with two main goals in mind; one is to enable University departments to obtain goods and services in an efficient manner and the other is to insure that University resources are used wisely and in accordance with Board Policy and best business practices.
There are two options available for processing purchases at Ferris State University:
|Visa Purchasing Card
||Small Dollar Purchases ($5,000 or less)|
||All Dollar Levels over $5,000|
In all cases, whether you are using a Purchasing Card or a University Purchase Order, the authority to purchase is the responsibility of the Purchasing Officer. This authority is being delegated to Account Managers with the intent that Account Managers adhere to the Purchasing Code of Ethics, Board Purchasing Policy and these Procedures.
The Procedures have been developed by the Purchasing Office and approved by the President and Vice President of Administration and Finance. If you have any questions about the Policy and Procedures or need help with a purchase, feel free to call or stop by the Purchasing Office.
