Purchases of Goods and Services Using Federal Funds

Effective July 1, 2018, all purchases made using Federal funds must comply with the procurement policy announced by the Bates Accounting Department. In addition, any travel expenses (including food and lodging expenses for off-campus activities), regardless of source of funds, must comply with the Bates Travel and Expense Policy. Additional restrictions may apply depending upon the terms and conditions of your award. Please feel free to contact us with any questions prior to placing an order.

In the event that a cost must be transferred from one fund to another, please review the Bates Accounting Policy on Cost Transfers and deliver the completed form to us in Sponsored Programs.
