How do I pay for goods or services above $5,000?

All purchases above $5,000 require that a requisition be submitted.

There are several methods that can be used to make departmental purchases, both for goods and services. These methods are listed below, ranked in order of preference:

  • MarketPlace: this should always be your first choice!
  • Non-MarketPlace Requisition: for purchases above $5,000 that cannot be sourced in the MarketPlace system.

  • Is $5,000 or more
  • Is not available on the MarketPlace
  • Will not be made through a competitive solicitation
