Part II: Simplified Acquisitions

Simplified Acquisitions is the term given for purchases between $3,000.00 and $150,000.00. For discussion purposes, we have broken out this category into two different sections; those purchases between $3,000.00 and $25,000.00 and those between $25,000.00 and $150,000.00.

Purchases between $3,000.00 and $25,000.00
