On-Campus Services If a supplier is coming on campus to perform a service (i.e. repairs, installation, training, etc.) or making a delivery, a Purchase Requisition must be submitted if the total amount of the transaction exceeds $4,999.99.

Transactions in the amount of $4,999.99 or less can be processed without a Purchase Requisition. However, it is the department’s responsibility to make sure the supplier has a completed Certificate of Insurance on file.
