The end of the calendar year and winter holidays are approaching. Please plan now for any purchases you’ll be making before 2019 comes to an end. Below is an important deadline to keep in mind:
Thursday December 12 – KFS Requisitions, Purchase Agreements and Vendor Requests associated with those REQs and PAs must be in the KFS Action List of Vendor Services by 5 p.m. in order to be processed prior to the Winter Holidays.
Please note: If a requisition/agreement requires a competitive bid, extensive negotiation, or signature by a 2nd party, it may not be completed by the Winter Holiday break, even if submitted by this deadline.
Out of fairness to all, requisitions/agreements are completed on a first-in, first-out basis, with rush requests limited to those meeting the definition of an emergency. We suggest that any end-of-year discounts offered by vendors come with a 30-day price guarantee to allow time after the holiday closure for completion.
We appreciate your understanding and support. We look forward to assisting you with your procurement needs now and in 2020!
