Purchases Made Without Prior Approval

In circumstances where a purchase is made without prior department approval and reimbursement is required, you will need to submit a Miscellaneous Payment Request Form. Please fill out the information and include an explanation of why you did not go through the department’s purchasing procedures. Attached original receipts. Also, be sure, if an item is requiring shipment that you indicate the University of Maryland as the ship to address.

Inventory Requirements
  • Be aware that due to State rules anything valued at $1000 or more, or in a particular category, must be tagged with a University barcode to be put into the campus Inventory system.
  • This is a State mandated requirement, not an ME requirement.
  • You will also need to complete a form if the equipment is to be taken off-campus, i.e. using a laptop – the procurement team will provide the form for you to sign when you pick up an item.
  • If you are disposing of an item or moving it to another location off-campus, you MUST check to see if it has a University barcode on it – if it does, please email with the details about the item, and the barcode number.
