Purchase Justification

Purchase Justification

Due to COVID-19 and state budget directives, as well as to help support critical areas on campus, allocations for Fall 2022 will be limited and any requests for spending will be restricted to critical needs only at this time.

Critical needs are in the following order of priority:

  1. Health and Safety
  2. Instruction
  3. Student Facing Experience
  4. Managerial / Operational
  5. Revenue Generating

To be considered, your request must be essential to support the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, be critical to instruction, or be necessary to recruit and retain students.  While service level reductions around campus are not desired, they must be considered and applied before submitting this request, as we must support areas that fall under higher priorities first.

Currently we have PPE supplies on campus. This request form should not be used for PPE or other COVID-19 related needs.  Do not submit a request through this process or to Purchasing for these items. If you have a concern or see a need, please reach out to your supervisor. We need to try and eliminate the possibility of any duplicative purchases at this time.

By submitting this form, that means that you have:

  • Considered the above critical campus needs
  • Explored alternatives
  • Still determined this need is critical to the college
  • Been approved by a supervisor to complete this form
