    I. Policy Statement

    It is the function of the Wellington Group Purchasing Department to procure goods and services in a timely, cost-effective manner consistent with the needs, policies and procedures of the company.

    II. Responsibilities

    With the exception of certain specific written delegations by the President or the Vice-President of Purchasing, responsibility for the purchase of materials, supplies and services lies solely with the Purchasing Department as established by company policy. Only the Purchasing Department can obligate or commit the company for the purchase of a specific product or service, acceptance of a quoted price, or use of a particular source. Adherence to this policy insures purchasing controls which will afford maximum procurement advantages to the company.

    We ask that all initial contacts with our company be directed to the purchasing department. Others may request you to provide product information and budgetary quotations. Please make the appropriate buyer aware of your activity.  


    I. Purchase Procedure

    A. Written specifications for goods and services must accompany all purchase requisitions. 

    B. To secure technical data and other information, contacts with suppliers by various employees of the company are necessary and desirable. Purchasing representatives are to be kept informed in these instances so that decision making can be enhanced and reaction time can be planned for.

    C. Purchases will be based on proposals and bids solicited from reliable suppliers. 

    D. Ample time must be allowed for the purchasing department to acquire competitive quotes where dollar amounts exceed established levels.

    E. All purchase requirements other than the Madison location must be electronically transmitted to the purchasing department. 

    F. All Madison plant orders, and all orders generated by corporate employees based in Madison, must be on a completed purchase requisition form and signed by the proper authority before a purchase order can be issued.

    G. Inventory items are the responsibility of manufacturing; therefore, requests for purchase of inventory must be approved by manufacturing personnel. 

    H. Determination of prices through competitive bidding will not preclude further price negotiation with one or more bidders when conditions indicate this necessity. If bids are requested against specifications or conditions which are subject to change, bidders will be notified advance whenever we are aware of such circumstances.

    I. A written specification should be sent to purchasing for single items over $10,000. A minimum of three bids will be secured except when fewer sources exist. Written confirmation of the terms and prices of all offers will be required.

    II. Terms and Conditions

    A. The information printed on the front and back of purchase orders states our terms and conditions for each order. If you disagree with this information, please send a letter to our Vice President of Purchasing explaining your concerns.
