Purchase order request

Purchase order request

A Purchase Order Request is a request sent by a company to obtain more stock.

The request is a note which tells the purchasing department exactly what stock to order and how much. It is usually used in smaller business who do not have a computer based system. However, the note can be passed to the purchasing department via Management Information System (MIS).

A Purchase Requisition Form (PRF) is type of form that is filled out prior to purchasing goods in order to have in place a form of authorisation.

A PRF may contain budget and purchase values in order to make the individual aware of the annual and remaining budget before a purchase is made. Such a system is there to guarantee that goods and services are purchased with the consent of the line manager and that a sufficient budget is available.
