Purchasing Policy and Procedure
University procurements, regardless of funding source, will
be made in accordance with applicable state statutes, federal
regulations, Board of Regents' policies, and University policies.
Purchasing Services will ensure policy compliance. The Director
of Procurement has the central responsibility for establishing
procedures and guidelines that will assist users in complying
with procurement policies.
The Arizona Board of Regents is exempt from the provisions
of the Arizona Procurement Code. State law, however, required
the Board of Regents to adopt rules prescribing procurement
policies and procedures that are substantially equivalent
to those established for the State of Arizona. Therefore,
the ABOR University Procurement Code was adopted.
