POLICY:

University policy does not permit the purchase of such items as briefcases, flower vases and arrangements, coffee pots, expensive desk pads, or other such appointments. These and such other items as listed below are not provided by University funds, but are considered personal items. Any individual who wishes to have such items in the office should purchase them at his or her own expense. University letterheads should not be used for ordering personal items to be paid for by the individual. When letterheads are used, the vendor will often bill the University rather than the individual, resulting in time consuming and expensive correspondence.

A. Briefcases for personal use

B. Chair cushions

C. Furniture and furnishings of design other than University standards

D. Coffee making equipment including all devices for making and serving coffee and other hot drinks. (Except food service)

E. Plate glass desk tops

F. Draperies or window coverings of an ornamental nature in academic and office buildings

G. Ornamental items such as pictures, vases, pillows, planters, ornamental plants, etc.

H. Repairs to personal property

I. Rugs and area carpets for offices
