Can I purchase furniture from outlets with quicker delivery time, home delivery and cheaper costs?


Essentially ‘no’.  If you are planning to use the university funds, furniture can be purchased through authorized contracted vendors only. Faculty are strongly encouraged to have ACT make the up-front purchase rather than seek reimbursement. Reimbursements are not approved until reviewed and deemed in-line with University’s guidelines. Processing of reimbursements also may be delayed by additional levels of documentation and approvals. Submitting the purchase request up-front furthermore offers the opportunity for the buyer to recommend an alternative vendor that could save money or provide other added value.
