Changes to Requisitions and Purchase Orders

Changes to Requisitions

Departments/schools can make their own changes to Requisitions after submitting them for approval, as long as the Requisition has not been sourced into a Purchase Order and sent to the vendor. If some approvals have already occurred on the Requisition, workflow will start over.

Changes to Purchase Orders

Changes that need to be made to Purchase Orders that have already been dispatched to the supplier can be made directly to the Purchase Order via NUFinancials and then routed for the appropriate approval. Requests to close or cancel a Purchase Order should be made via the Change Order Form found in the Forms tile on the NUFS Employee Self-Service screen.

Purchase Orders that do not exactly match the invoice but are within tolerance will automatically close during normal batch processing. Therefore, a change order is NOT necessary.
