ME Purchase Orders

All purchase order requests must be accompanied by a PI approved ME PO form.

Because BU has a number of preferred vendors and procedures for ordering items, please refer to the ME Purchasing Flow Chart for more information on items such as:

  • when to include vendor quotes
  • how to purchase items <$25,000, and
  • a list of the BU Terrier Marketplace vendors

Due to limited purchasing card resources, please attempt to submit POs for BU preferred vendors before you request purchases from non-preferred vendors such as Amazon, New Egg, and Best Buy.
