Change requests are needed when a PO has already been created, but the requester later needs to make edits to it.
Note: A Purchase Order (PO) is automatically generated once a requisition has been fully approved.
When submitting a change request, go to the PO and click
Request Change at the bottom of the page, then make the desired changes to the PO and resubmit it.
The PO will go through another approval process, and then the updated PO will be automatically sent to the vendor. To learn more about the B2P approval process, please see What is the Buy2Pay approval process?
If you’re changing the cost object or adding items to the order, please ensure the account being charged has adequate funds to cover the full expense of the updated PO.
