MHC Purchasing Background

A few years ago the College participated in a Buy/Pay analysis of our current Purchasing/Accounts Payable processes and determined that 88% of what was purchased by the College cost under $1,000.00 per transaction, representing only 17% of our purchasing spending. Using national standards it has been documented that a company can spend anywhere from $50 to $150 processing each of these individual purchases.
