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.
