PUR 201–01: Procurement Regulations
To establish an overall university procurement policy and to define the regulations that govern procurement
All procurements made by the university regardless of the source of funds
In general, expenditures are made from state appropriated, sponsored project, local, and agency funds. Some funds are more restrictive than others. Account representatives should be aware of these restrictions.
University procurements, regardless of funding source, will be made in accordance with applicable state statutes, federal regulations, Board of Regents’ policies, and university policies. Purchasing and Business Services will ensure policy compliance. The chief procurement officer has the central responsibility for establishing procedures and guidelines that will assist users in complying with procurement policies.
The Arizona Board of Regents is exempt from the provisions of the Arizona Procurement Code. State law, however, requires the Board of Regents to adopt rules prescribing procurement policies and procedures that are substantially equivalent to those established for the state of Arizona.
