About This Commodity
Police & Security Equipment & Services should be purchased from a contracted supplier through Show Me Shop whenever possible. The University has access to several large Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO) should you not find your item(s) in Show Me Shop. Please contact the Strategic Sourcing Specialist for assistance.
Purchases outside of Show Me Shop and 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.
Insurance requirements – Any supplier who is performing work on University property MUST have a current certificate of insurance on file with UM Procurement. Contact UM Procurement before proceeding with any of this type of work.
NOTE: Security systems for buildings and rooms, including alarm and video systems, MUST be approved by your respective facilities department.
NOTE: For those security systems that have an IT component, there may be an additional level of approval needed. Consult with your local IT pro for additional information.
