How do I know if I should create a requisition?

Per University policy, any intended purchase of goods equal to or exceeding $2500, or services equal to or exceeding $50,000 require that a purchase order be issued. To obtain a purchase order, you must first enter a purchase requisition into FlashCart. Requisitions can be entered into FlashCart through the Forms and through the hosted and punch-out catalogs . Once the order is placed, the requisition enters approval workflow and will be made into a purchase order by Procurement and sent electronically to the selected vendor.

Pcard orders under $2500, utilizing the hosted and punch-out catalogs, can also be entered into FlashCart.  However these bypass the approval workflow and transmit directly to the selected vendor.
