All goods shall be shipped via the most economical method, unless otherwise specifically agreed upon by the University. The University is exempt from any sales taxes.
  3. Payment shall be net 30 days from receipt of a properly documented invoice. If a cash discount is available for early payment, such cash discount period will be calculated from the date of receipt of a properly documented invoice or, for goods, from the date of receipt at the specified delivery point, and, for services, from the date of completion, whichever is later.
  4. Time or times of delivery, in the quantity or number of units required to be delivered is of the essence of this Purchase Order and must be strictly complied with.
