Purchasing Procedures


No individual has the authority to enter into purchase contracts or in any way obligate Indiana Wesleyan University for a procurement indebtedness unless specifically authorized to do so. Any such negotiations are considered as unauthorized purchases and the individual may encounter a personal obligation to the vendor.

With the exception of the Library and Maintenance department, ALL purchases are to be made through the Procurement office. Purchase order numbers will not be given out in advance.

Office supplies should be purchased from the vendor that the university has selected through a bid process to determine the lowest rates. Please contact Accounts Payable for a supply catalog and current price list.

Printing orders must go out for bid. A minimum of three bids should be sought with at least one being a local vendor. Bid forms are available from the Procurement office.

For a complete listing of Procurement policies and procedures, please see the Procurement Intranet site on the Family Page.


This policy applies to all the employees of the University.
