FURNITURE POLICY AND PROCEDURES
- All furniture must be purchased using a university issued purchase order, unless otherwise approved by Warren Whitfield, Manager of Construction Purchasing.
- The University Committee has ruled out the purchase of poor quality chairs and and pressed wood furniture, as they will not hold up with long-term use. This is deemed as not good use of University funds.
- Before or on completion of a Requisition, a copy of the furniture quote must be emailed/faxed to Warren Whitfield at Warren.Whitfield@wku.edu or fax: 270-745-4190. A PO will not be written until a quote is received.
- Furniture purchases must be broken down by individual items with detailed lines that include the following: catalog #, description, fabrics/color/finishes. If you need assistance with making sure your requisition is entered correctly, please contact Warren Whitfield (Warren.Whitfield@wku.edu) or Danielle Burris (Danielle.Burris@wku.edu).
- ALL furniture Purchase Orders TOTALING $1000 or more must be received in BANNER (FPARCVD). Receiving your items promptly in BANNER enables PDC Purchasing to process the invoices as quickly as possible for payment. Please contact Danielle Burris if you need any assistance with completing a receiver in BANNER.
If your department would like to purchase furniture and needs assistance, feel free to contact Warren Whitfield, Manager of Construction Purchasing, or Danielle Burris, Construction Purchasing Associate. They will be glad to assist you to make your furniture buying experience pleasant and efficient.
