Changes to Receiving Process and Blanket Orders

***Important Information***

Changes Being Made to Receiving Process and Blanket Orders


Changes to Receiving process:
Effective July 1, 2012, ALL purchase orders will be automatically processed as a “two-way” match. This means that the RECEIVING function in PeopleSoft will no longer be required. It will be at the discretion of the department if they wish to perform the RECEIVING function. If the RECEIVING function (or three-way match) is desired, notification of this must be included in the justification/comments field of the requisition at the time the requisition is entered. It is the responsibility of the department to make this determination at the time the requisition is created and to indicate it in the appropriate fields.

Changes to Blanket Order process:
Also effective July 1, 2012, blanket orders will be set up as “reverse PO’s”. This means the quantity listed will be the total amount of the blanket order and the dollar value will be set at $1.00. This will make multiple billings from a single purchase order possible.
