 • *Emergencies:
1. Most emergency purchases can be channeled through the normal Requisition/purchase order process. The Purchasing department must be contacted as soon as possible so that paperwork can be expedited.
2. In the case of a true emergency that arises either when the Purchasing department, or the University is closed:
Ex: Weekends, after 5:00 PM Monday through Friday and Holidays
An invoice attached to a Request for Payment form will be accepted to expedite vendor payment.

*The determination of whether an emergency exists is made by the University’s VP of Finance or his/hers designee on a case-by case basis. Should an emergency exist “…by reason of extraordinary conditions or contingencies that could not reasonably be foreseen and guarded against, or because of unusual trade or market conditions,“ [C.G.S. 10a-151b© Exhibit A.]

  • Supplies (Other than those purchased through the on-line system).
