Control of spending through appropriate channels was another purpose: goods and services available in e-SHOP are required by policy to be purchased through e-SHOP by university policy 3.25 Procurement of Goods and Services. This policy also required procurement cards to be issued only to employee’s whose job description includes procurement.
