How to purchase from internal MIT vendors

How to submit a procurement requisition using internal MIT vendors and services, such as the Samberg Center and Endicott House

Please follow these instructions any time a requisition for an internal vendor needs to be made.

DO NOT USE Buy2Pay (COUPA) as that creates an external requisition
NOTE: Only a person who has MIT financial authorizations can create an Internal Requisition. If you encounter authorization issues, please consult your department’s financial manager.

Creating an Internal Requisition

1. Visit MIT ATLAS

2. Select Buying from the MENU on the left-hand side of the page

3. Click on the Internal (MIT Services) link

Note: All form fields that do not have an asterisk are NOT necessary to fill out. If there is only 1 item, like in the example above, then line 20 does not need to be completed, though the fields look like they’re required.
