What Procurement Method Should I Use?



Purchase Order (PO) and Procurement Card (P-Card) are both listed as approved buying methods for transactions $3,500 or less. P-Card transaction activity is monitored to ensure that cardholders are not splitting transactions to get at or below the $3,500 purchasing card transaction limit. When the total purchase transaction cost is greater than $3,500, a PO is recommended for the purchase unless the transaction is specifically noted as allowed in the P-Card policy, or one that can be found under the listing of goods and services that are exempt from competition.

Payment Request Forms (PDF) are submitted to Accounts Payable Services. iBuy+ transactions are submitted through one of the iBuy+ systems. Purchases through Travel Services utilize either the iBuy+ Travel system or GW's travel partner, Travel Leaders.
