The university prohibits some goods and services from being purchased; other purchases require special approvals. Procurement Services agents review each transaction request and route them to the appropriate unit for approval, at which time the transaction can be processed. Examples of transactions requiring special approval include:
Certain restricted commodities may be purchased using an ePro requisition, after obtaining special approval if required, but are altogether restricted from being purchased on the PCard or through the use of a Non-PO voucher. Purchase of a restricted commodity or service made without obtaining proper approval is considered an unauthorized purchase and will be reported to the U-M Regents.
