Purchase Order Process:
- An order for goods will be processed within 7 business days of receipt of the requisition provided that all the necessary information is on the requisition. (There are times when the order volume is high and this cannot be met - ex. year-end)
- All campus requisitions are processed in the order they were received.
- If you provided a vendor email address on the requisition form you and the vendor will receive an email notification that the order/purchase order has been placed. If an order is placed via Fax or mail then you will receive your PO via campus mail.
NOTE: All software and technology equipment must be reviewed and approved by GTS, please review link: http://www.gallaudet.edu/gts/technology-projects.html
- The Contracts and Purchasing department makes every attempt to send out all contracts within 7 business days, provided all necessary information is included on the requisition.
- All requisitions for independent contractors must have a completed "Independent Contractor vs. Employee Requirements" form.
- A contract is sent to the vendor via FedEx (unless the address is a PO Box then it is mailed) to the vendor for signature.
- A PO is not obligated for a contract until the signed contract is returned to Contracts and Purchasing.
- Once the contract is received the PO will be obligated and you will receive a PO and a copy of the contract via email.
