From: Troy Morse, Director of Purchasing Services

The vast majority of our eProcurement vendors are under competitively-bid contracts with the University.  In order to encourage broader use of these contracts, Procurement Services has decided to increase the ePro ordering threshold for select ePro vendors from the current $5,000 per order limit to $25,000 per order.  The initial phase of this increase will occur on Friday, June 7, and include all vendors in the Information Technology category (Apple, Lenovo, Dell, and CDW-G).  The ePro landing site will indicate which vendors have been taken to the higher threshold with an asterisk next to each vendor.  We will evaluate the process with these vendors to ensure that the proper controls for asset management and approval routing are in in place.  Several policy documents have changed as a result of this phased threshold increase:

After we validate the initial phase, we intend to continue the phased order threshold increase with these additional vendors:
