28.2.3 Prevention of Unauthorized Acts

Persons in charge of Procurement Departments and Staff in Charge of Requesting Units, including the Budget Holders, must not make unauthorized acts, that is, those that are not in compliance with any aspect of this or any other University policy. Such purposes include improper bidding, making commitments for payments without proper authorization, fictitious transactions, inappropriate split orders (defined at 28.8), obtaining improper price information and making false inspection records. Because unauthorized acts increase legal and financial risks for the University, persons performing such acts may be held personally liable and/or subject to disciplinary action.
