FY24 UNIV Blanket Order Processing Time Period - April 17 to June 30

Blanket orders are used for transactions that occur very frequently (daily or multiple times a week), have a high variation of product types, have undetermined timing, and are not available in Buckeye Buy.

Accounts Payable advises users to include the service to be provided and frequency in the description line of the requisition. It will also be helpful to include the expected term agreement details in the memo to supplier field (example, $50.00/month for 12 months).  

Blanket Requisitions Above the New Competitive Bid Limit:

The competitive bid limit for both goods and services will increase to $75,000 effective July 1, 2023.

Fiscal year 2024 blanket requisitions issued to non-contract suppliers for purchases above the new competitive bid limit must be accompanied by a waiver of competitive bidding form and written justification. Please continue to use the existing forms through June 30.



Requestors should be careful to avoid selecting contracts in Workday labeled as DO NOT USE. These contracts have been replaced with new contract numbers. The DO NOT USE contracts will be purged from Workday in July.

Fiscal year 2024 blanket order requisitions must be received by Central Purchasing between Monday, April 17 and Friday, June 30 to allow for adequate processing time.
