Processing a PO:
Purchasers at McMaster University may choose to enter their own requisition, or request help from Strategic Procurement (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are entering a requisition, you may need to request access to Mosaic Finance functions.
After approval, a Purchase Order is generated.
Strategic Procurement will receive a Purchase Order, and review it. Once processed, the PO will be dispatched to the supplier, and the Requestor will receive notice.
After a Purchase Order has been processed, additional funds can be added by requesting a Change Order. Strategic Procurement will receive your request and add additional lines to your PO.
You may request a Change Order if:
your Purchase Order total was under $100,000 (before tax) and will remain under $100,000 with the added funds, or,
your Purchase Order total was already greater than $100,000 (before tax) and met the procurement guidelines for purchases of that value, or,
you completed a Limited Tender form for the original PO
If your Purchase Order total was under $100,000 (before tax) and will now exceed $100,000, AND you did not initially complete a Limited Tender approval; you will need to complete a Limited Tender Approval form as well.
