Purchases for Employees
Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
Associate VP, Office of Procurement Services
University employees shall not acquire or purchase goods or services with University or University-managed funds for personal use. Vendors are not expected to extend beneficial pricing privileges to University employees but may do so at the vendor’s sole discretion. Any agreement with a vendor which seeks to extend discounts or services to employees shall have prior approval of the Associate Vice President of Procurement Services. These agreements shall not place Indiana University in the position of taking ownership or being responsible for funding such purchases.
This policy is intended to:
Personal Use: Means activities that do not further the mission or purposes of University but rather are activities for the personal benefit of a single individual or group of individuals. Personal use items would be those that are considered a personal preference but are not necessary to do the required job.
Business Use: Means activities that further the mission or purposes of the University and, in the case of an employee of the University, are activities that fall within the scope and authority of the person’s employment.
Engaging in or permitting unethical or illegal conduct constitutes grounds for disciplinary action that may include disciplinary action up to and including denied or restricted access to the review of solicitation responses and other purchasing information, termination of employment and/or criminal prosecution.
