Avoid These Common Purchasing Pitfalls

  1. You notice that your RUSH PO number is listed in Banner. Now it is time to call the Vendor, right?
  2. You are all set to fax or email your supporting documentation (for example, a registration form or travel authorization) to Procurement. What information must you include?
  3. "I want something flat from one of those office stores." True or False: This is a good commodity description.
  4. It is late and you cannot remember the account code for Audio/Visual Equipment under $500. You say to yourself, "Just enter 7428 for Other Supplies and Materials." Right?
  5. Are you duplicating the information in the document and item text? Did you know that is not necessary?
