The Purchase Request Form
What is the purchase request form and why does my agency need it?
It is common for agencies to receive purchasing requests from departments via call, email, or other unorganized methods. It is the job of the procurement practitioner to review the scope of the purchase request and decide whether or not the good or service can or should be procured.
With the Negometrix Purchase Request Form, the purchasing team receives a customized digital form in which all department users can use for their purchase requests. The requests appear on a dashboard for the purchasing team’s view. The purchasing team has the ability to accept or reject requests, and the system automatically notifies department stakeholders on the status of their requests.
If a request is accepted, the buyer has the ability to take the specifications from the request and create a solicitation out of it. The solicitation will pull the relevant information from the request form into a solicitation, saving the buyer countless hours of back and forth with the department user for specifications and details regarding their purchase.
