Business Process: Dispatching Purchase Orders

After a requisition is created, approved, budget checked and sourced to a Purchase Order, the PO must be dispatched to the vendor.  DPT Purchase Orders can only be printed and then delivered by the Department Requester.

Dispatch POs:

Add a New Value

Choose “Add a New Value”

Run Control ID: UserID and a short description of the process.  Use “_” instead of spaces. 


Note:  A new value only needs to be added the first time the process is run.  The run control ID can be found by searching on the “Find an Existing Value” tab.  All run control parameters will be saved under the run control ID used.
