Establishing Accounts with Vendors
For items that do not require a purchase requisition, accounts with vendors are established in the name of the individual school or department. The integrity of the account shall be the responsibility of the school or department. Purchasing Office staff are willing to assist schools or departments with transactions and will recommend vendors.
Credit accounts should not be opened without requesting permission from the accounts payable manager.
Prior approval from the district's Purchasing Office is required for emergency purchases of goods or services in excess of $3,500 for schools, $5,000 for departments.
