Purchase Orders, Requisitions, and eStore orders
The general method of ordering items through the university’s financial system (Workday) typically includes the use of a purchase order. The requisition process in Workday generally leads to a purchase order being created. There are other processes that are used in the processes of creating a purchase order including change orders, bidding, and waivers.
The purchasing process is bound by multiple policies at the university. The Purchasing Department controls the purchasing policy and general procurement procedures.
The policies mainly include:
The general procedures for the purchasing process can be found at the university's Administrative Resource Center (ARC) under Workday Supply Chain: https://admin.resources.osu.edu/workday/workday-for-core-users-supply-chain
The university utilizes Workday to complete the purchasing process.
Training will be offered by the PSSC on Workday best practices and usage. We will offer training by request either as a one-on-one training or in small groups as requested by the areas we support. We also participate in regular Open Office hours which are held on a monthly basis.
BuckeyeBuy is the university’s online marketplace. The university has negotiated with over 200 vendors to provide catalogs to shop from. For a complete list of vendors, visit the BuckeyeBuy website.
