authority to purchase
  • Per adopted College rules, the College’s District Purchasing Department is responsible for purchasing ALL materials, supplies and equipment and/or services.
  • Exceptions to this policy have been specifically delegated in some instances to expedite purchases or for the efficient purchase of small dollar Items. These exceptions include petty cash and credit card purchases, library materials and agreements for services.
authority to purchase1
  • Departments may not order goods or services without the issuance of a valid purchase order unless they have been issued a Purchasing Card (P-Card Visa) authorized by their Dean and Campus President. Departments are not to pledge College resources or to order in advance with the promise of a purchase order to follow.
  • Committing the College to a future obligation to pay for goods or services without the benefit of a purchase order or payment by a P-Card may result in disciplinary action to the individual and a loss of Purchasing privileges to a department.
identifying requirements
  • What product or services do you need?
  • Do you know who provides the product or services you’re looking for?
  • What is the cost of those products and services?
  • How soon do you need the product or to have the service done?
quote and bid thresholds
  • Requisitions under $10,000 are at the Buyers discretion to obtain the best value.
  • Requisitions between $10,000 and $35,000 require 3 written quotes and are to be coordinated with the Purchasing Department.
  • Requisitions over $35,000 require sealed bids or proposals from potential vendors.
  • All products and services over $35,000 must be coordinated with the Purchasing Department regardless of exempt or non-exempt status. Grant Funds are no exception. Products and services being purchased through Grant Funds still require the same quotes, bids or proposals per Florida regulation.
rules for bid thresholds
  • Purchases over $10,000 should not be split in to multiple requisitions to the same vendor or different vendors to avoid the quote or bid process.
  • Purchases over $10,000 should not be split to avoid sending it to the next appropriate approval level.
creating quotes bids and proposals
  • The following are required in order to generate the quotes, bids or proposals.

1. List of products required with applicable part numbers.

2. Specifications on the products or services required.

  • The Purchasing department will assist you in crafting bid specifications or statements of work to ensure that your department receives the products or services required at the best value for the college.
items generally exempt from the bidding process


  • Florida and other State contracts for products or services.
  • City, County and Purchasing Cooperative contracts.
  • University, College and School Board contracts.
  • General Services Administration (GSA) contracts or bid awards of other agencies resulting from competitive bids.
  • Technology - computers, peripherals, hardware and software.
  • Educational Equipment and Supplies.
  • However, departments still must coordinate in advance with Purchasing. It may be determined that quotes, bids or proposals are needed even if an item is exempt.
starting the requisition process
  • Logon to Datatel.
  • Click on APP at the top of the screen and change to CF if it’s not already there.
  • Click on PU – Purchasing.
  • Click on REQ – Requisitions then click on REQM – Requisition Maintenance.
  • Note: Increase and decreases to outstanding purchase orders require Purchasing to do a “Change Order”. The increases require a requisition be created and approved at which time the Purchasing Department will go in and make the increase to the PO and delete the requisition. The PO is printed and mailed to the vendor. Decreases require only a memo from the department requesting a decrease. Once completed the PO will be printed and mailed to the vendor.
beginning your requisition
  • To begin a new requisition enter “A” to add. If you are working with an existing requisition, enter the requisition #.
  • In the next screen, simply click OK. This will assign the requisition number automatically.
required fields on req
  • Requisition date - Date automatically added.
  • Initiator – Type in your user ID or last name. If you use your login ID, it will simply populate the field with your name, if not, go to next page.
initiator lookup screen
  • Enter the number to the left of the name in the Controller Lookup Resolution box.
  • When the number is entered click Save Box.
vendor lookup
  • To lookup a vendor, you need only to type a portion of the name or all of it in the Vendor ID box.
  • In this example I typed “Fisher Sci;” these were the vendors that were listed. Use the scroll bar to see additional vendors.
vendor lookup1
  • If the vendor address does not match your address, simply Detail on the address line to see more addresses for that vendor.
  • If you cannot find the vendor in the vendor database, you can manually type it in starting with the Name box. Please input the data in the correct fields.
  • New vendors must complete a vendor registration and W-9 form before a purchase order can be issued to them. They can find these online at Purchasing’s web address: http://www.hccfl.edu./purchasing/venapp.htm or they can contact the Purchasing Department for a vendor registration and W-9 forms.
central receiving
  • All products being shipped to the College must go through Central Receiving except for the following:

A. Products that are being installed by the vendor.

B. Office products that are ordered from your Blanket Purchase Orders.

C. Emergency items that impact the safety of the students and staff.

  • Duplication of Orders - We occasionally get duplications on orders. This is due to staff members placing the order before or after the PO has been issued. The vendor receives the PO and also fills the order placed over the phone by the staff member. Departments should not order items. Items are ordered via the purchase order being issued by the Purchasing Department. If you want to know about your order status, please contact Purchasing Staff, who will follow up with the vendor. If you place an order over the phone, you must give the vendor the PO number, with a warning not to duplicate the order upon receipt of the hardcopy PO.
central receiving continued
  • DO NOT CHANGE THE DELIVERY ADDRESS BY PHONE FROM CENTRAL RECEIVING TO YOUR OFFICE. This causes a delay in the payment process to vendors and creates unnecessary paper work for your office and Accounts Payable. Goods ordered on a Purchase Order that starts with the letter P must be shipped to Central Receiving.
central receiving continued1
  • In the event the Ship To must be your address you can input “SA” (See Above Text for Delivery) in the Ship To box or enter a “…” to do a lookup to see if your address is listed.
  • If your address in not listed use the “SA” (See Above Text for Delivery) for your delivery address. Your name and address must be typed into the Printed Comments box on the requisition. This will be covered later in the training. Enter your selection and click Save.
approvals lookup
  • All requisitions must be approved by a Budget Officer for your department. Other approvals are required if the requisition amount exceeds your supervisor’s approval authority.
  • Managers, Deans, Directors and Officers have approval authority up to $10,000.
  • Campus Presidents and Vice Presidents have authority up to $35,000.
  • The College President must approve all requisitions over $35,000.
approval lookup continued
  • Grants, Student Government Association (SGA), Unexpended Plant, Capital Equipment, Lab Fee Funds and any vendors coming on campus that might require insurance must be approved by the following personnel:

A. Grants – Fund codes 21, 24 and 26 by Jana Irvine.

B. SGA – Fund code 23 and 64 by Michael Reid.

C. Lab Fees - Funds 14 by Teshia Minnifield

D. Unexpended Plant Funds - 71, 72, 73, 74, 76, and 77 by Sandra Colon and David Cabeceiras

approval lookup continued1

E. Property Control – Subaccounts identifying Capital equipment requiring College Property control labels.

Rodney Bohach

F. Insurance - Subaccounts that might require insurance documents to be on file with the College if the supplier is providing the product or services on campus.
