How To Buy / Pay

The following table summarizes purchasing methods for various routine purchases at Clemson.  This matrix applies for all State and Grant Funds (Funds 10-23); for other Fund sources, please review the Disbursement Grid.  When purchasing with other Fund sources, Direct Payment Vouchers are the preferred method, followed by personal reimbursement when absolutely necessary.

In the table below, when both buyWays PO and P-card are indicated, refer to this Decision Tree to decide specifically which method should be used in a particular instance.
