buyBAMA Catalog Purchases – Valid Business Purpose Still Required

As most are aware, buyBama is the University’s eProcurement system where users can browse vendor catalogs, add items to a shopping cart, and submit orders electronically using their P-Card.  All catalog vendors are Approved Contract Vendors.  Please remember that just because an item is available through buyBama catalog vendors does not automatically mean it is an allowable purchase.  All purchases through buyBama catalogs are still subject to all applicable University policies and guidelines.  If you are not sure if an item available through a buyBama catalog is allowable, please reach out to the appropriate Purchasing Senior Buyer for guidance prior to purchasing.
