Approval from Trademark Licensing must be obtained prior to submitting to Procurement, whether or not the items use LSU's name, logos or trademarks. If a grant account will be used, approval from Sponsored Program Accounting (SPA) must be obtained prior to submitting to Procurement.
PRIOR TO PURCHASE of these items (regardless of the cost), provide the information requested below and submit for review. Upon approval, normal purchasing procedures are to be followed. The approved form must be attached to either a requisition or expense report submitted for payment.
NOTE: Standard printed materials used to promote the University internally or externally (e.g. brochures, posters, banners, backdrops, name tags, annual reports, etc.) DO NOT require the use of this form. These standard printed materials should be sent to Communications & University Relations at email@example.com PRIOR TO PRODUCTION so they are aware of materials going in-market.
