A requisition is a purchasing document used by University departments to request that an authorized buyer, from Purchasing and Contract Services, place an order for the needed goods or services. All transactions processed on a requisition must have an official University Purchase Order issued by Purchasing and Contract Services prior to any commitment for materials or services taking place. Any individual making a commitment or ordering items without an official purchase order in place may be personally liable for all payments for these goods or services. A requisition is initiated by using the Banner Finance " on-line" requisitioning system.
- Requisition is created and approved, using the Banner System, by the university department
- Requisition is transferred to Purchasing and Contract Services and routed to the appropriate buyer.
Buyer reviews the request and decides:
a) Issue a purchase order to the requested vendor/supplier
b) Issue a purchase order to a State Contract vendor/supplier
c) Issue a Bid (Request for Quotation)for the requested goods or services
