7.6. FEDERAL PURCHASING GUIDELINES - GENERAL INFORMATION

A. Introduction

All federally funded purchases made by The University of Texas at Austin are made in accordance with applicable federal rules and regulations. In addition to departmental approval, these purchases generally require approval from the Office of Sponsored Projects.

B. Additional Terms and Conditions for Orders Purchased with Federal Contract or Grant Funds

Appropriate terms and conditions are dependent upon the dollar amount of the purchase and whether the purchase order is issued as a subcontract under a U.S. Government Prime Contract or uses federal grant funds.

  • Purchase Orders Issued as Subcontracts Under a U.S. Government Prime Contract

    If a purchase order is issued as a subcontract under a U.S. Government Prime Contract, additional provisions must be incorporated into the terms and conditions of the order. The dollar amount of the purchase determines which terms apply. For the terms and conditions, see the Handbook of Business Procedures, 7.11.4. University Terms and Conditions, Section II: Government Subcontract Provisions.

  • Purchase Orders Using Federal Grant Funds

    If a purchase order uses federal grant funds as full or partial payment, additional provisions must be incorporated into the terms and conditions of the order. The dollar amount of the purchase determines which terms apply. For the terms and conditions, see the Handbook of Business Procedures, 7.11.4. University Terms and Conditions, Section III: Federal Grant Provisions.
