The University is migrating to a new Purchasing system for purchase orders. Billiken Buy will become the new method of sending PO's to the vendor. However, during the migration, Banner PO's and Billiken Buy PO's will be issued based upon the roll out schedule to departments. An on-line purchase requisition is used to request procurement of materials, supplies, equipment and services provided by outside vendors and not covered by policies and procedures relating to eSeePay DPV, Travel Expenses and Business and Entertainment Expenses. See the Disbursement Guide for further information regarding the appropriate use of each disbursement form.
On-line purchase requisitions are submitted via screens in Internet Native Banner or Billiken Buy. After a requisition has been created the document will be routed electronically to all required individuals for approval based on pre-determined rules which have been incorporated into the system.
A purchase requisition must be completed in advance and in accordance with the policies and procedures included herein to initiate a commitment for goods and services for which the University will be financially responsible. Employees who purchase or order goods/services without an authorized purchase order will risk non-reimbursement. Individuals making unauthorized commitments risk personal liability for any incurred expenses.
