A Requisition ("R") is created at the department level. Each department specifies the goods and/or services they wish to procure. The requisition ("R") then goes through an electronic approval process before arriving at the Purchasing Office.

The following are examples of when an R should be used:

  • Purchasing goods that exceed department delegated limit- $10,000
  • Procuring any services
  • Purchasing equipment/goods that must be tagged (added to department inventory, controlled property)
  • Payment of any memberships
  • Purchases are otherwise restricted on the procurement card
  • Purchases from or payments to foreign entities
  • Purchasing of software, hardware, customized/branded items
