Initiating the online requisition is the first step in the process to create a purchase order.
The online requisition form is located in Ask Banner-Budgets-Finance-Requisition. For instructions, please click on “HELP” link in the top right corner of the requisition screen.
From the information received on the requisition, a purchase order hard copy will be generated by the Purchasing Department.
This hard copy will then either be mailed or faxed to the vendor, as expressed by the requisitioning party.
Purchases of $500-$1,000 require one (1) quote, verbal or faxed.
Purchases exceeding $1,000 but less than or equal to $5,000, require three (3) written, faxed or verbal quotes. This documentation must be submitted via fax to the Purchasing Department.
The preferred use of a sole vendor for orders exceeding $1000 requires a letter of justification from the requesting department, giving the reasons why the purchase should not be subject to the bid process.
Ongoing system training in the Requisition/Purchase Order process is offered by the Purchasing Department to newly appointed staff or anyone unfamiliar with the system.
