Under certain circumstances, a purchase order for Inventory and Non-Inventory commodities may be entered directly without the requirement of requisition or quote. The purchase order value must be less than $10,000 and cannot have a pre-established commodity contract.
The following order types are specific to Purchase Orders that can be created directly through this process:
o OP - Commodity
o ZO - Direct Purchase Authority Order
o Z8 - Service PO (2-way Voucher Match)
o ZP - Stock Commodity Purchase Order
o O9 - Services
If there is a contract, you MUST generate an O9 from the Service Contract.
