Subject: [nursefac] Purchases over $5000

Per UT policy, purchases of identical goods or modular components from the same vendor of $5,000 or more must be initiated through purchasing.  On several occasions this fiscal year the CON has violated this policy which in turns puts me in violation of UT policy and therefore not a happy camper when the auditor asks about it. 


If you feel you are going to get close to incurring expenses of $5,000 from a single vendor in a fiscal year please contact Teresa or me prior to initiating the purchase.
