Purchase Order Confirmation Emails

New PO Confirmation Emails Coming September 21

We heard you! As of Monday, September 21, email confirmations to Requesters will include specific Purchase Order (PO) information.

  • After you submit a Requisition, you’ll get an email when the PO has been created.
  • You will no longer receive a separate Requisition approval email.
  • You should receive the notification within two business hours after the Requisition is fully approved.
  • Notification email will include the new PO number and vendor name.
  • See full details via a link in the notification email that will take you directly to the PO inquiry page.
  • In the case of multiple vendors per Requisition, there will be one email for each PO created, rather than one per Requisition.
