When you create a requisition, you are requesting to purchase goods or services on behalf of MIT. Therefore, each requisition must go through a review and approval process before being placed with the vendor.
Step 1: Creating the Requisition
The DMSE Finance Team may be the only approvers, or we may be one of a few approvers, depending on the material/services being purchased and the cost object(s) the purchase is being made on.
Step 2: Purchase Orders (PO’s)
When a requisition is fully approved, it will be assigned a Purchase Order (PO) number and will be sent to the vendor.
If you realize that a requisition you created has a mistake, you can edit the requisition directly or leave a comment on it in the
Comments section for an approver to edit.
If the requisition has already been fully approved and has a PO number, only the original requester will be able to make changes to or cancel the PO.
- Please refer to the Submitting a change request page for more information on changing or canceling PO’s.
Step 3: Invoicing
When the goods or services have been received and are satisfactory, you can go into B2P to “Receive” the order.
- Receiving the order tells the Finance Approver that everything was received and satisfactory.
- If you do not Receive the item before the invoice comes in, a Finance Approver will reach out to you through email to confirm the order.
