Purchasing

With the Implementation of GMS Financials, Georgetown University Campuses and Departments now have greater purchasing capabilities.  

GMS Requisitioners and GMS Cost Center Buyers are now able to initiate and complete the purchase order process for most transactions locally, without direct involvement from the Office of Financial Affairs.

GMS Purchase Orders are required for most University purchases. In addition to Purchase Orders, many service purchases may also require formal University contracts.  

  • Purchases with a value greater than $10,000 must generally be preceded by a competitive solicitation.  For more Information, see: Competition Requirements
  • How to create a GMS Purchase Order: Job Aide


To obtain a Purchase Order and/or a new Contract, University personnel should contact one of the GMS Requisitioners or GMS Cost Center Buyers assigned to their department to begin the process by creating a GMS Requisition.
