Purchase orders

PeopleSoft eProcurement is an online system for purchasing through university-contracted vendors. It includes the Show Me Shop, an online catalog of office supplies, scientific supplies and computers.

    Tips for shoppers:

  • Show-Me Shop items should not be included in the same order as non-catalog items (regular PO).
  • Non-catalog items have a limit of one vendor and up to 99 line items.
  • Show Me Shop orders have a limit of one "ship-to code" per vendor per requisition.

    To get a new ship-to code, contact the Procurement Hotline.
  • For non-eProcurement orders, bidding is recommended at $5000, required at $10,000+.  Please contact the Procurement Hotline for assistance.

Sole source purchase request
If the purchase is large enough that it should be bid out, but is unique enough that you can only get it from one vendor, then a sole source justification is necessary. Filled in the form and send with the PO request.
