PUR 307–03: Change Orders
To adjust purchase orders and contracts to current requirements
Changes to purchase orders or contracts may be necessary occasionally to allow for price changes, requirement modifications, changed delivery schedules, etc. The authority to make changes to existing purchase orders or contracts rests with Purchasing and Business Services. Purchasing and Business Services may make minor adjustments to price without concurrence of the requesting department. Changes that would increase the total amount of the purchase order by ten percent or more require the concurrence of the requesting department. This approval is normally communicated by e-mail.
