The PDF FilePurchase Requisition Form (PRF) is an electronic document that is used to identify the need to procure goods and/or services. The form is an internal document th​at will be initiated by the individual requestor and sent through the appropriate transaction & approval levels to be further processed (please see the Procurement Transaction Levels & Authority Grids page).

Completed Requisitions should be forwarded to the Fiscal Services department along with any supporting materials or documentation.

In brief, the steps are as follows:

  1. The requestor contacts the commodity buyer for pricing, if necessary;
  2. A Purchase Requisition Form is filled out;
  3. The requestor obtains required department signatures (i.e. Supervisor/Department Head, Administrator, Vice President) and is then forwarded to Fiscal Services and it's run through the final approvals.

The forms needed to start the process are available under the Documents panel on the right. For more information on the steps that follow or to view the complete process workflow, see the tabs below.
