Can I buy a good or service from a University employee?

Generally, the answer is no.

Every reasonable effort shall be made to avoid making purchases from employees of any state agency. Prior written approval from the State Purchasing Officer (SPO) is required for instances which may develop when doing business with such personnel. To obtain SPO approval, a request must first be submitted to Procurement Services for preliminary approval. If approved, Procurement Services will forward the request to the SPO for final approval.
