Making Purchases Using Paper Requisitions for Purchase Orders

Online versus Paper Requisitions

As the college transitions to online requisitions, please attend the kickoffs and labs for your department. You are encourged to contact Purchasing or the Controller's Office with issues or questions.

Many of the same guidelines apply to both online and paper requisitions, but if you have questions, please contact Purchasing.

Quick reference guides and other important documents regarding Online Requisitions are available on the Forms page as well as on the Controller's Office website.

Before starting any requisition check —

Prepare a paper requisition —

  • Fill out the entire requisition form in detail.
    • Fill out all parts of the form and include part numbers, shipping/handling charges, quote/contract numbers, and quantities.
  • Attach any necessary paperwork (quotes, approval e-mails, etc.).

 Decide who will be placing the order —

Purchasing

Make sure the requisition is complete, and send it through for the proper signatures and processing immediately. Include all quotes, any approval e-mails, and any contact information necessary to place the order.

Orders will not be placed without proper signatures on the requisition.

Department

  • Require a Confirming Purchase Order (PC) — Contact Purchasing before placing the order.
  • Mark the “Confirming: Do not Duplicate” box in the upper right corner of the requisition.

Make sure the requisition is complete, and send it through for the proper signatures and processing immediately. Do not wait for an invoice or for your order to arrive. When departments receive an invoice, it must be forwarded to Accounts Payable

Once the requisition has been approved by the Controller’s Office, a purchase order (PO) will be processed by the Purchasing Department.

  • Purchasing will then place any necessary orders.
    • Orders with confirming purchase order (PC) numbers will not be placed by Purchasing.
    • Orders can be e-mailed, faxed, or mailed to vendors.
