The University has established a list of limited commodities and services that may be obtained without a purchase order or procurement card. These are usually one-time, low dollar purchases that are not processed through the standard procurement processes because little or no value can be added.
The payments are processed by the Accounts Payable department and are not supported by the issuance of purchase orders or contracts. Click here for a list of allowable Direct Pay items.
Exception: Catering or food (hospitality) purchases must be pre-approved by Procurement prior to being submitted to Accounting Services for payment. This is in accordance with the University Hospitality policy located here.
