Information for Staff

At Campbell University, Incorporated (“University”), procurement decisions are often made by staff and faculty in the schools and departments.   The University expects these individuals to base purchases on sound business practices, accountability, best value, and compliance with sponsor, donor, and regulatory requirements.  Individuals making purchases or planning to make a purchase must follow established University policies and procedures and must adhere to Federal, State, and local laws, rules, and regulations.

The Contract Review Process is an effort to streamline and track the review, funding, negotiation, and execution of the contract. It allows for a thorough examination of a legal agreement before it is signed to ensure that the statements in the document are clear, accurate and adheres to the University’s mission, policies, and procedures according to the terms of the agreement. Contracts must be reviewed following the procedure outlined.

Department heads have designated specific staff to submit requests for contract approval through our contracts management platform, IntelAgree.  Authorized users can access IntelAgree here:

A Purchase Requisition (RQ) is not a purchase order and, thus, cannot be sent to the vendor to procure products and/or services. Purchase Requisitions are internal forms that are used to establish purchase descriptions, price, method of funding, etc. A Purchase Order (PO) is a legally binding contract between a vendor and the University. Do not place an order, promise an order, or otherwise authorize the purchase of goods or services without the purchase order. This may make you personally liable for payment to the vendor.

Detailed, purchase requisitions are submitted by the requesting department with all proper approvals. Any supporting documentation, such as quotes, proposals, order forms, etc., must be sent to the Procurement Department with the Purchase Requisition. Purchase must be made via the requisition process, purchase of a product or service must not occur prior to the issue of a PO unless there is an emergency or if it is an approved Credit Card purchase under the University Credit Card Policy included manual. In the event of an emergency, the item or service must first be approved by the Procurement Department prior to making the purchase.

Details including contacts and workflow chart on the Requisition Process are found in the Procurement Manual.
