Procurement Services at The Citadel has compiled a Purchasing Manual to provide a high-level overview of purchasing policies and South Carolina procurement rules that the College must adhere to. The manual contains explanations about the major procurement rules in place within the State and also addresses how to go about making common purchases of goods and services. This document is not a step-by-step manual about how to use Banner, but how-to documentation is under construction for release at a later date.
Similar to the Purchasing Manual, a policies and procedures manual exists to govern the College’s purchase card program. This document was recently updated, and the changes from the previous version are highlighted in the ‘Purchase Card Manual Changes’ document available at the link below. This manual presents the policies, aligned with the South Carolina Purchase Card Policies, that govern the use of the p-card for campus purchases. Additionally, step-by-step procedures to assist users are included in this all-in-one policies and procedures manual.
Contract Processing & Signature Authority
The policy governing the execution of contracts on behalf on The Citadel is in place to protect departments, contractors, and the College as a whole. Adherence to this policy is necessary to ensure The Citadel is not exposed to unnecessary risks and liabilities in the conduct of its daily business activities. All contracts must be reviewed by Procurement Services in accordance with this policy and South Carolina laws before they can be executed by an authorized signatory.
