Delegating Purchase Requisition Approvals - Change in Process

Published: 27 Feb 2014

Dear Colleagues,

Following the undernoted memo, the Tri-Agency Response Implementation Group (TRIG) continues to address Tri-Agency recommendations.  With respect to Purchase Requisitions, Tri-Agency recommended the removal of automatic approval of Purchase Requisitions less than $1,000.    

Effective, March 13, 2014, ALL Purchase Requisitions must be approved by the Fund Financial Manager/Principal Investigator (FFM/PI) or their delegate.  FFMs/PIs who have not assigned delegates for Purchase Requisitions on their funds/grants will need to approve ALL Purchase Requisitions regardless of the dollar amount.  The approval of Purchase Requisitions exceeding $10,000 may not be delegated.  This threshold has not changed.
