The Purchasing and Accounts Payable (PURAP) module allows users to request materials and services, generate and transmit purchase orders, and process invoices and credit memos received from vendors. The requisition, purchase order, payment request, purchase order amendment, and credit memo documents use the workflow Kuali Enterprise Workflow component for document approval followed by encumbrance, expense and liability entries in the General Ledger as required.
The system tracks the status of POs throughout their life cycle and manages encumbrances and other G/L entries related to the procurement process. PO numbers are stored in the reference document number of the G/L entry tables so you may track the transactions easily from the G/L inquiry screens.
Note: For detailed information about this module and instructions on working with PURAP functions, see Purchasing/Accounts Payable.
