The University has delayed the implementation of the Uniform Guidance Procurement Standards until July 1, 2016 as provided by the waiver of the procurement rules stated in COFAR FAQ, Section 110-6. In the interim, the OMB Circulars will apply to grants and cooperative agreements.
Wake Forest University has recently contracted with Vantage Point Logistics, Inc. (VPL) to provide freight management services through FedEx. The goal of this new program is to reduce shipping costs through mode-optimization and the value-added service offerings of VPL. This new program will apply only to inbound freight that is shipped “Prepay and Add”. Contracts in place with suppliers that stipulate “free freight” or “freight included” will not be affected.
Wake Forest has implemented a cost-per-copy program for multi-functional devices. The program applies to Reynolda Campus, Graylyn Conference Center and Reynolda House Museum of American Art. Devices are provided by Xerox Corporation. See our page on MFD’s for more information.

Policies & Procedures

Ways to learn about the Procurement Policy:
If your purchase is for resale, sales and use tax is not levied at the time of purchase. The vendor must be provided an exemption certificate in order to grant us an exemption of sales tax on such purchases.
When a department at the University sells items, the department must collect receipt tax at the time the item is sold. This tax is not refundable. The department making the sale is responsible for depositing the tax collected into account 111111-21021 and reporting it on the Monthly Departmental Sales Tax Form
If you have any questions regarding receipt tax, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
