Completing the Purchase Requisition Form

The Purchase Requisition Form creates an electronic requisition used:

  • To order items from suppliers that do not have a Hosted or Punchout catalog.
  • To order items not offered in supplier Hosted or Punchout catalogs. If you are creating an order for items not offered in a supplier Hosted or Punchout catalog, it is advised to obtain a quote from the supplier representative that details the Catalog Number, Product Description, Quantity, Packaging, and Price. Entering these details exactly as the supplier provides them in important for successful invoicing within iBuy. This process should not be used if the supplier creates an e-quote through the catalog.
  • For orders that require a contract or require the University to agree to vendor terms and conditions.
  • To order goods or services that are restricted as detailed in Policy & Procedures Manual, Section 7.2 Purchase of Goods & Services, Additional Resources. Examples include, but are not limited to: telecommunication equipment, weapons, furniture, chartered services, lab gases, on-site services, high-powered lasers, or non-denatured ethyl alcohol.
  • For goods purchased from another country that will need to go through Customs.
  • To order items that are a radioactive or controlled substance.
  • To create a After the Fact Purchase Order for products already in hand or services in process.
