Admin Policies and Procedures

Policies and Procedures

Policies and procedures regarding the Purchasing Department are available on the Administrative Policies and Procedures Web site.

The Procurement Policy is Policy #1000.

Oakland University will be implementing new federal regulations, known as Uniform Guidance, replacing OMB Circular A-110. The University will continue to comply with the procurement standards in previous OMB guidance, per 2 CFR §200.110(a), for one additional fiscal year after 2 CFR 200 goes into effect.   The University has elected to utilize the grace period and delay the implementation of the new procurement rules in 2 CFR §§200.317 - 200.326 until July 1, 2018. In the interim, the University’s existing policies and procedures and the OMB circulars will continue to apply.   


No Solicitation Policy 


All company representatives must first contact the Purchasing Department which will have them call upon certain departments where they may be of service. When departments want assistance from company representatives, they should inform purchasing, which will contact the representative. Any sales representative who contacts a department directly should be referred to the Purchasing Department.
