Purchase Requisitioning Process (Web Req. System)
Initiating the purchasing web requisition is the first step in the process to create a purchase order. Electronic submission improves the processing cycle time. This is the period of time between de- termination of need and receipt of product or fulfillment of service. Also, electronic transmission improves productivity and reduces transaction processing cost.
Utilization of this system requires submission of an application form (FO1 form) located on the CIS web site. As part of the application process, department heads/managers are required to establish Dollar approval levels for staff. For transactions exceeding the approved dollar levels, the system will reference the next authorized approver.
Ongoing system training is offered by the Purchasing Department to newly appointed staff or anyone unfamiliar with the system. Group sessions are offered periodically in the CIS Department, and one-on-one sessions may be scheduled by contacting the Purchasing Department. (See Training Programs for related information).
