Southeastern welcomes students back for the start of classes this week while we continue to keep all faculty, staff and students who are not yet able to make it to campus in our thoughts as the region works to recover from devastating flooding.
We attempted to reach ALL our students in recent days, but we realize communication has been difficult, if not impossible for some. If you are just now able to see this message, please contact so we can have a better understanding of your status and work with you so you can attain your educational goals.

However, in no instance shall the bidding time be less than (10) days.  (LAC 34:I503)


Preparation Time for Solicitations and Ordering

The requisitioner should allow the Purchasing Department at least (5) working days to verify funding, and to prepare and solicit bids.

A (1) to (5) working day period may be required after bids are opened to evaluate and award bids, and to issue purchase orders. Purchase Orders may be issued for purchases over $500. Vendor delivery time must be considered in planning the overall purchasing time required for a purchase.
