Purchasing Process

For all allowable items, the most cost effective method for purchasing services, supplies and equipment is through the use of the State issued procurement card. The restricted items list and purchase limits may be accessed at www.twu.edu/procurement/procurement-card-pcard-program-/pcard-guidelines-/

For those items that are not allowable expenses on the procurement card, most purchases require the input of a requisition. A requisition is initiated by the department and processed through Procurement and Contract Services. Once a requisition is approved, departments should allow a minimum of 5 business days for that requisition to be converted to a purchase order.
