Sourcing and ProcurementSourcing and Procurement is part of the Office of the Vice President for Finance and is available to assist you in the purchasing of products and services.
Requisitions/Purchase OrdersAs a buyer of goods and services at MIT, you have a responsibility to make the smartest purchase you can.
To make buying easy for you, we have established relationships with vendors who provide quality products and services as well as favorable terms and conditions to the MIT community.
You can make purchases from these vendors in three ways:
-Via our electronic marketplace, Buy-to-Pay (B2P Coupa), a portal that allows you to directly order products in a similar way to other online catalogs
-By using MIT's credit card, the ProCard
-By creating a requisition, which is a request to purchase
Purchase orders are needed when:
- buying sensitive items
- buying services (professional, temporary or cloud)
- not available through B2P punch-out catalogs
VISA Procurement Card (ProCard)This card provides another tool for the MIT community to use when making purchases of $3,000 or less. The cardholder can order authorized goods directly from suppliers who accept the Procurement Card as a form of payment. The Procurement Card is meant to complement, not replace, other purchasing tools such as the Buy-to-Pay (B2P Coupa) system used in conjunction with MIT's partners or the MIT Travel Card. It is still recommended that these methods of purchasing be used when appropriate.
Procurement is responsible for managing the Procurement Card program. Each individual academic or administrative department is responsible for managing its cardholder accounts. Two areas of responsibility within each department have been defined to assist in the management of the Procurement Card: cardholder and department verifier. A cardholder cannot act as his/her own verifier; otherwise, the decision as to how each of these responsibilities is assigned will be made within the department.
