Purchase Orders

A purchase order is created when a requisition has been approved by the department, Dean’s office and purchasing services. The department generally uses Purchase Orders when the vendor does not take Procard as payment, or the purchase is over $5,000.

There are two types of requisitions:

  • External Requisitions are used for purchasing goods/services from all external vendors. These purchases are encumbered on your project.
  • Internal Work Orders are used to communicate information between customers and internal service providers about what is being ordered and what funds will pay for the services. Dollar amounts listed are not encumbered on your project.
