Computers and Equipment Purchased with Personal Funds

The State of Mississippi and the University of Southern Mississippi require the purchase of computers and other equipment to follow a specific set of policies and guidelines for technology/computers, and equipment.  For this reason, faculty/staff that purchase computers or equipment with personal funds without Procurement’s prior permission cannot be reimbursed.  If a requisition or remittance voucher is submitted to reimburse a USM faculty or staff member who purchased a computer or equipment with personal funds, the requisition or remittance voucher will be canceled.  In addition, intended University purchases shall not be shipped to any personal home or other off-campus site, and are prohibited without prior written approval from Procurement & Contract Services.  Such purchases made with personal funds will also not be reimbursed or allowed.
