Limited Purchase Orders

Limited Purchase Orders are actual order forms and are available to University departments in packs of thirty (30). The forms are pre-numbered and as orders are used, a control sheet is maintained. The control sheet must be completed, signed by an authorized signer and returned to the Purchasing Department before additional order forms will be issued. The individual signing for the forms is responsible for them.

Limited purchase orders can be used to purchase materials or services up to a limit of $4,999 They may not be used for the purchase of capital equipment. Additionally, they may not be used for the purchase of furniture, printing services, maintenance, lease or rentals, or grouped to cover a transaction which exceeds the $4,999 limit.
