Purchase Orders

All purchases over $10,000 require a Purchase Order be issued by the Director of Purchasing prior to the order or delivery of any goods or services. Purchase orders are required regardless of funding source. It is the responsibility of the individual requesting a Purchase Order to make certain that all FLC Procurement Rules have been followed.

Procurements may not be artificially divided so as to constitute small-dollar purchases.

PO’s must be issued PRIOR to delivery of any goods or services. Goods ordered or services provided prior to the PO being issued, is a violation of FLC Fiscal Rule IV-2 and as such, FLC is not responsible for payment.
