Purchase Requisition

Procurement in every organization starts with gathering requirements. Once requirements are gathered we need to inform the purchasing organization. Purchase Requisition is a document that will contain list of requirements. The key points about purchase requisition are as follows:
  • Purchase requisition is a request that is made to purchasing organization to procure certain list of material.
  • Purchase requisition is an internal document; specifically it remains within the organization.
  • Purchase requisition needs approval from purchasing organization.
  • If purchase requisition is approved then changes are possible only to limited extent.
  • Purchase requisition can be created for the following procurement types:
    Standard: Getting finished material from vendor.
    Subcontracting: Providing raw material to vendor and getting finished material.
    Consignment: Procuring material that is kept in company’s premises and paying to vendor for that.

    External service: Getting services like maintenance from third party vendor.
