Emergency Purchase Orders
An emergency is defined as a sudden, unexpected occurrence that poses a clear and imminent danger, requiring immediate action to prevent or mitigate the loss or impairment of life, health, property, or essential University services.
If you have an emergency as defined above, call Procurement (ext 2111) and request to speak with a buyer.
The buyer will need to know what the nature of the emergency is.
If approved, the buyer will assign an EPO number, and request you prepare a purchase requisition form with a justification for the emergency. The requisition must have the approval of the department head, and be sent to Procurement. Once the invoice is received it must be acknowledged by the department and forwarded to Procurement. Please make sure the EPO number is referenced on the invoice.
The purchase requisition can be found in the "Purchaisng Forms" tab to the left.
