Goods under $5,000

If your purchase of materials, goods, commodities, leases (including equipment or real property) and licenses (including software) is LESS than five thousand ($5,000) in value, you may use a vendor of your choice providing you do not expect total purchases with that vendor to exceed $5,000 over the next 12 months. 

Vendors on University, State (OSD), E&I (Educational & Institutional Cooperative Purchasing) and MHEC (Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium) contracts should be used whenever possible.

Purchasing Requirements:

  • A purchase requisition must be entered and approved in the BuyWays Procurement System.
  • Any price quote from the Vendor should be attached to the requisition in BuyWays.
