How-to Purchase and Pay

There are various ways to purchase goods and services. In order to find out the options available, select the appropriate link below based on your purchase transaction type. Details on requirements, processing, and permissible payment types will be provided. Any purchase type requiring a requisition must not be acted upon until the department and/or requestor receives a dispatched purchase order notification from Purchasing.

For business needs that require splitting costs between multiple business units on a requisition (inter-unit), enter the requisition in the business unit responsible for the largest percentage of the order and ensure proper approval authority is attached to the requisition. Reference the inter-unit requisition Stream video for more details.

These procedures are applicable to all three Business Units which include California State University Long Beach (LBCMP), Research Foundation (LBFDN), and 49ER Foundation (LB49R).
