What is Systems Contracting?
Systems Contracting is a Purchasing Program designed to simplify purchasing relatively low-value / highly repetitive goods or services from pre-negotiated suppliers. Simply place your order directly with the supplier via a specialized Purchase requisition (see below) and the goods or services can normally be expected to arrive on the next business day.
Systems Contracts negotiations cover general goods/services to a value of $1,000.00 per unit/order (including applicable taxes).
Orders up to the value of $10,000.00 inclusive of all taxes or $2,500.00 per unit inclusive of all taxes are acceptable. Items/orders exceeding this amount require a Requisition to Purchase to be completed and submitted to Purchasing Services.
Ordering from suppliers is done with the System Contract Requisition Form or online with those Systems Contracts that have Online Ordering. Typically a user profile is set-up to a default FOAP. Please contact Purchasing Services to inquire further. The only exception is orders placed for printing/copying services which are ordered on the Requisition for Printing / Duplicating and forwarded to Purchasing Services for processing.
