The Procurement Department is responsible for processing all SHU
Purchase Order requests. Procurement will also assist the
community on finding appropriate vendors to do business with and
bidding out items or services the university needs to procure.
Procurement prepares, reviews and then selects vendors for the
university based on the establishment of Requests for Proposal (RFP)
and resulting competitive bid processes. Procurement also
maintains the official university preferred vendor list.
Any SHU employee who will have financial responsibility for
approving and then submitting PO requests or who will be working with
vendors should contact Procurement to receive training on the policies
and procedures pertaining to these items.
Authorized PO requests are submitted to Procurement for review and
processing into the Banner Financial System by Procurement
Clerks. Bid policy and approval authorization are confirmed in
doing this and then POs established are emailed to the SHU requestor
and/or the vendor on the PO.
