Exceptions

Please Don't Be Exceptional!

The Business Operations unit follows the University of Houston purchasing policies and guidelines to ensure that we are in full compliance with any regulatory rules, internal control procedures, and best practices that drive intelligently planned cost savings and product/service quality.

Our goal is zero – NO PURCHASING EXCEPTIONS.

We have provided procurement training materials on our web page under "Tools" and will add travel guidance soon.

Therefore, we are tracking purchasing exceptions with a goal of moving us forward to zero. Exceptions are departmental requests for approval when the standard process has not been followed, for any reason.
