Creating a requisition is the first step in the procurement process. The Requisition (REQS) document collects information about the desired items or services, possible vendors to fulfill the order, delivery instructions, contact information, and related accounting details. The approved Requisition document is used to generate the purchase order.
Note: After the requisition is approved, a contract manager within your institution's procurement organization is assigned. This assignment process updates the Contract Manager field on the requisition and causes the system to automatically create the Purchase Order (PO) document.
