A document signed by the buyer and director of coordinator/director requesting the delivery of goods or services in accordance with certain terms and conditions in exchange for a promise by the College to pay the stated price; considered an offer to contract rather than an acceptance of contract. Department fund citations (FOAPAL) attached to Purchase Orders are encumbered.
An agreement between two or more competent parties to do or not do something not prohibited by law, for legal consideration; involves both an offer and an acceptance. At LCC we use Purchase Orders issued against a Blanket Purchase Order to form most of our contractual agreements. Blanket Purchase Orders do not encumber funds. The Purchase Order issued against it encumbers funds.
