Requisition Tips

All Requisitions need to go through the Approval Process entirely. DO NOT send Requisitions directly to Purchasing. Always include the following: Vendor Name, Address, Phone Numbers and ALL back up material, quotes, etc.

Check Your Budgets

Please make sure the budget numbers utilized are valid and have sufficient funds prior to submitting the Requisitions. Insufficient funds will delay the processing of your Requisition.

Requisition Attachments

Please attach three copies of your backup with your requisition. If applicable attach a copy of the Board approval.

Confirming Orders


Please contact the Purchasing Department PRIOR to purchasing for approval.

Vendor Contact

Contact the Purchasing Department regarding any changes that need to be made to orders pending, placed and or received. Do not contact the vendors or make any changes once the order is placed without having prior approval from the Purchasing Department.
