Details of the purchasing process are found in the purchasing matrices included under References/Links. An overview of purchasing options is provided in this section.
Effective July 1, 2021, for purchases not made via SunRise or with a PCard, a purchase order (PO) must be issued to the supplier prior to the purchase and receipt of goods and services, including consulting services.
This is an ASU policy that will be enforced.
Failure to comply with the policy will result in the following:
- Required explanation as to why a purchase order was not issued in advance of the delivery of goods or completion of services, including consulting services.
- Department staff will need to obtain dean approval for payment of the invoice.
- It is possible that invoice payment may not be approved.
