All purchases of materials and equipment with grant funds must be handled through standard University procedures (i.e., don't do anything without a purchase order).
Purchase of equipment items must follow certain procedures so it is important to allow time to meet all necessary requirements. Please visit the CCU Procurement website for the correct policies and procedures on CCU equipment purchase requirements.
If equipment is to be purchased on a sole-source basis, the request must be justified and routed through the Purchasing Office and final approval granted by the President.
Purchasing will need a copy of the section within the grant that shows the specific item to be purchased (or the name and/or organization to perform services). Attach this to the purchase requisition.
South Carolina sales tax must be added to the purchase price of any equipment or supplies.
