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.
