Procurement at Ithaca College

Purchases made for Ithaca College should be cost-effective and contribute to the mission of the College. All purchases requiring a Purchase Order are processed through Parnassus using iProcurement. In iProcurement authorized users create requisitions which are then sent through an approval hierarchy. Once the requisition has completed the approval hierarchy, it will be turned into a Purchase Order. For all purchases Karen Cleveland creates and sends the Purchase Order to the vendor.
