No further approval necessary N/A $0 - $15,000Encumbrance School may encumber up to this amount at any given time on P-Card. N/A P-Cards work essentially like credit cards and may be used to order products from vendors in situations where issuing a Purchase Order is not efficient for reasons such as delivery time or contractual ambiguities. If the payment is for a valid purchase, the banking institution issuing the card will approve the purchase and pay the vendor, less a fee, within a few days. The banking institution then sends a monthly billing statement, along with card activity reports, to DFO for payment. SIPPs A SIPP (Small Item Payment Process) and formerly referred to as an IMPREST, is an electronic payment mechanism processed through the FAMIS Portal. SIPPs were originally established to facilitate “over-the-counter” purchase, (e.g., postage), providing for a direct payment to the vendor or reimbursement to the purchaser. With the introduction of P-Cards, SIPPs should no longer be used for purchases. Instead, SIPPs should be reserved for reimbursement to the NYC Department of Education employees for business related expenses.

Instructional Materials Review Unit ~ Overview & Process Highlights ~ The IMRU is an office within the New York City Department of Education that ensures that all textbooks and instructional material in our classrooms contain appropriate material for our students. The IMRU reviewers ensure that there is no inappropriate content or references, such as foul language, religious references, racial slurs, advertising, or sexual content. They also determine whether the textbooks or software can be purchased using NYSTL funds. If a School would like to purchase a particular textbook that is not available on the e- Catalog, the School / ISC can contact Client Services at (718) Fayeh Balgobin, IMRU, at (718) or
