The Stores Blanket Order System allows departments to purchase small dollar value items, not stocked by Stores, without the need for advance paperwork. The following are the responsibilities for participation in this system:
$5000 limit: Orders are limited to $5000 per day, per account number. Repair of equipment, to include personal computers, does not include upgrade or significant changes to the basic unit. For those types of modifications, departments must go through Purchasing.
Furniture: Furniture purchases are prohibited on the Stores Blanket Order System. In the past, Arizona Board of Regents Policy (since repealed) mandated furniture standardization for the three Universities. The Universities have determined that continued furniture standardization allows the Universities the benefits of lowest price, established quality, best delivery and ease of ordering, and therefore established a Tri-University furniture contract. The contracts should be used for all furniture purchases where there is not a need to match an existing furniture installation.
Delivery: Stores and Central Receiving will not accept deliveries of goods ordered via a Stores Blanket Order. Deliveries must be made directly to the Building and Room Number provided to the vendor, by the Department, when the order was placed.
Required Information: The following information is required on all invoices, receipts and packing slips.
Department Account Number
Name of Purchaser
Invoices: Stores Vendors must mail their invoices directly to Stores. Departments are not authorized to pick up invoices.
Printing: Purchase requests, by University departments, that require printing of the University of Arizona logo on stationary, envelopes and University business cards are prohibited on Stores Blanket Orders. These types of orders must be routed to Printing Services on a Printing Services Billing Form.
Vendors are not authorized to release supplies or provide services unless these procedures are complied with. Failure of the vendor to follow these ground rules will not only delay payment, but could result in the cancellation of their Blanket Purchase Order with Stores. For resolution of problems or questions regarding these procedures, please call the Stores Accounting Section at 621-3925.
