Texas State Technical College Procurement Services Department facilitates all institutional purchases and works closely with departments to ensure that the college's resources are used efficiently and effectively and within state purchasing guidelines.
All purchases for the College require a Purchase Order Number in advance. This includes reimbursements. Once you have a PO number, you are then authorized to make the purchase. Click here for information on TIBH required purchases and the exception process.
Departments are delegated the purchasing authority up to $1,999.99. This includes all costs, such as shipping and handling, fees, etc. At the point a purchase reaches $2,000, the order must be placed by the TSTC Purchasing Office. Departments are still required to obtain a Purchase Order number (not Requisitions number) from the Purchasing Officer prior to making any purchase. Departments are responsible for following all TSTC purchasing policies and procedures. Find out more.
Remember when making a purchase on behalf of the TSTC, it is important that you present the vendor with a tax-exempt form. TSTC cannot reimburse for sales tax. This includes business luncheons. For this reason, you need to turn in an itemized register receipt, not just the credit card receipt.
The Purchasing Office is available to answer any questions you may have or provide assistance as needed.
