Provide a clear communication to the vendor regarding the Vendor Quotation Guidelines as outlined below:

  • The requisition must mirror the vendor’s quote. The vendor will submit an invoice based on the purchase order content.
  • The name, department and extension of the person requesting the items must be included.
  • Do not include a separate line for tax; the purchase order auto calculates tax.


  • Written quotations must be provided to the University for vendor goods and/or services.
  • Written quotations must break out the purchases at the line-item level, delineating taxable and non-taxable items.
  • Written quotations must include any miscellaneous fees, such as but not limited to:
    • Shipping/Freight
    • Recycling Fees (IT equipment)
    • Environmental Fees (IT equipment)
Shipping is always Freight on Board (FOB), destination. No exceptions
