Purchase Orders Required
New York State procurement rules and regulations require that an official NYS purchase order be prepared prior to the delivery of goods and/or services. The Procurement Services department will not process for payment any invoice without an official NYS purchase order/pre-approval on file. If goods and/or services are delivered before a purchase order/pre-approval is issued, the employee who placed the order with the vendor may personally be liable for the payment of the related invoice.

Every effort should be made to purchase from Corcraft (Division of Correctional Industries), NYS Industries for the Disabled (NYSID), and Industries for the Blind of New York State (IBNYS), where the form, function, utility, cost, and delivery terms meet the needs of the campus.
