This Policies and Procedures Manual has been prepared to provide information about the University’s purchasing requirements and Purchasing Services. Its various sections address the responsibilities of the Requisitioner, the Procurement Officer, and the Recipient of purchased products and services.
The procedures also cover the use of i-Buy, Purchasing Card ($2500 limit) and Low Dollar Orders ($2500 limit), all decentralized systems for handling low-dollar purchases. i-Buy is an electronic marketplace that integrates with
Purchasing Services’ e-Requisitioning System to provide an on-line shopping experience with selected NYU suppliers.
This Manual also provides information about the University’s and Administrative Services’ Environmental Purchasing Policy and Environmental Philosophy and Practices. For more information about the University’s sustainability initiatives, visit www.nyu.edu/about/sustainability/.
From time to time procedures will be added and/or deleted, and others updated. You should also refer to the University’s Business Expenses Policy located on the Controller’s Division website at http://www.nyu.edu/financial.services/cdv/policies for details of NYU’s standard finance policies.
If you are connected to NYU-NET or NYU Home (Work Tab), you can connect to the Purchasing Services & Contract Administration home page located at www.nyu.edu/purchasing.services. The Purchasing Services
home page offers quick access to information including i-Buy, NYU Purchasing Policies and Procedures, Who’s Who, Key Programs, Key Suppliers, Frequently Asked Questions and much more.
Purchasing Services & Contract Administration also publishes an electronic newsletter (Dollars & Sense) that focuses on announcing new agreements, new procedures and other items of interest to the University Community.
