A fully approved and budget checked Requisition is automatically sourced into a Purchase Order that begins with the prefix PUR during normal batch processing no manual intervention by Procurement and Payment Services is necessary in most cases.
The official Purchase Order is then sent to the vendor. This process occurs multiple times per day, and once the sourcing process runs, all purchase orders are then almost immediately dispatched to the vendors.

The system provides an appropriate audit trail since all transactions are captured in the system specific to each individual purchase, putting the University in the best position to pay for purchases in a timely manner.
Starting with a Requisition ensures that an approved and official Purchase Order is issued. Electronic invoices are automatically sent to Accounts Payable.
