Procurement Decision Tree
The following is an order of the preferred methods of purchasing at Ohio State. All of these purchases are initiated using eRequest.
- Internal Vendors (Uniprint, CCIC, MBSC, Mass Spec, etc.)
- PCard - purchases less than $5,000 that cannot be purchased from an internal order, PO, or eStores (Only university funds can be used for pcard purchases)
- If you have a Pcard for your grant, please work with OSP on those purchases.
- Convenience Order (reimbursement, honorarium, memberships, and registration fees)
- You cannot submit a reimbursement for yourself or someone in your lab (or another); only the Departmental Office can process a reimbursement.
- Purchase order - for goods/services greater than $5,000
