Purchasing Procedures

Purchasing Requirements

  • Unmanned aerial systems purchased through ePro will be routed to IT for approval. (You will be required to supply the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certification for the intended pilot via email.)
  • All unmanned aerial systems purchased outside of ePro (P-card, check requests, etc.) require preapproval through IT.   You must email ITPurchasing@georgiasouthern.edu before you process your order to obtain approval.  Attach the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certification for the intended pilot.   IT will obtain approval from the Chief Pilot prior to approval. Copy the Chief Pilot at drones@georgiasouthern.edu for faster processing.
  • All unmanned aerial systems purchased through Georgia Southern funding or for Georgia Southern research purposes must have a FAA tail number  registered on the Georgia Southern  FAA account.  Bring your UAS to Veazey Hall room 3000 for registration.  The process takes about 15 minutes.  You must bring the unit and your Part 107 remote pilot certification with you to register.
  • When making purchases on behalf of the university, make sure to ask the vendor about any educational discounts they may offer.
