Once the suppliers' quote responses are entered into the system, you can compare price quotations and create a purchase order for the supplier that should be awarded the bid. Funds are encumbered when the Purchase Order is generated.


You can compare price quotes for an item by locating the quotation request detail line that contains the item. You can review the item description for the detail line and all suppliers that have provided price quotes for the item.

 

Navigation paths tend to change as the system is developed. If you are unable to find the Order type below, please call the OCIO Help Desk (402) 471-4636.
