An unauthorized purchase is any order given by telephone, on-line, opening bank (credit or debit) cards, or walk-in orders in the University’s name by personnel who are not authorized to do so.  The Vice President for Business and Finance will determine any exceptions for Business and Finance within the limits as delegated from the President.
If a purchase and/or services are deemed unauthorized because the person agreeing to such transaction lacked actual authority to bind the University, then the University will not make payment.  Whether the University has or has not made payments, the requestor and division vice president may be liable for the payment of these goods and/or services.
