How does this process work again? I don't order things very often.
An employee creates an online request using the Bishopbuy e-procurement site on myOWU, and the requisition is automatically routed to the supervisor/chair. If it is over $5,000, the requisition also will be routed to the VP/officer of the department and to the VP of Business Affairs. If it is over $100,000, it will be routed to the President. After it is approved electronically, the requisition will be routed to Purchasing and a purchase order (PO) number will be assigned. The PO number will be emailed to you from the Bishopbuy system, and the PO will be sent to the vendor via e-mail from the Bishopbuy site. The order then will be shipped or completed. Once the order arrives, Central Receiving will mark your order received in the system. If you should receive the merchandise other than from Central Receiving or if your purchase is for a service, it will be your responsibility to mark the order received/completed in Bishopbuy. For more information on receiving, please see the quick guides available in Bishopbuy. Please send any invoices you receive to the Accounting Office with the PO number clearly marked.
