Tier2-2: Local Businesses
|0.25 / 0.25||
Does the institution give preference to local products and businesses in its purchasing decisions? Local food purchases, which are covered in OP Credit 6: Food Purchasing, are not included in this credit.:
A brief description of the program:
Purchases made by The College at Brockport are governed by the appropriate sections of New York State Finance Law, Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) rules and regulations, and State University (SUNY) policies and procedures. It is the responsibility of Procurement and Payment Services to ensure that purchases are in compliance with numerous rules and regulations. With the exception of Citibank VISA Purchasing Card purchases, departments are not permitted to obligate funds without the prior knowledge and approval of Procurement and Payment Services. This is accomplished when departments submit a requisition form to Procurement and Payment Services showing the intended purchase or service required.
Procurement and Payment Services should be allowed sufficient time to process the request and finalize the purchase according to appropriate rules and regulations. Purchases that do not follow this process may be rejected.
