About This Commodity
Postal meters, mailroom equipment, supplies and maintenance primarily for use by the University campus mail department, but may be needed by other operations totaling less than $5,000 may be purchased using the University One Card. Purchases between $5,000 and $10,000 require a PeopleSoft Requisition.
Purchases over $10,000 require competitive quotes, or written bid requests with detailed specifications prepared by UM Procurement.
If you will be making several small purchases, and the total amount will exceed $10,000 in a 12-month period, a competitively bid contract may be appropriate. Contact the Strategic Sourcing Specialist listed for assistance.
