Creating a requisition is done by Department Requestors to order goods
and services. A Requisition goes through
approval processes based on amount and items ordered. After the requisition is approved it is
sourced into a Purchase Order then sent to the appropriate vendor. With few exceptions, purchases may not be done without first creating a Requisition. View this "How-To" guide on Creating a Requisition in PeopleSoft.
This section of the "Training Documents" provides tools developed by End Users. These User's have submitted these tools in the hopes that others may find them useful. Most, in part, are spreadsheets which may be exported from this page. By using filters, sorts, and other Excel functions, you may streamline this raw data to meet your needs. Some of the "CheetSheets" included are: Speed Chart Listings, Department Lists, Fund Listings, List of Approvers, and more!
Video documentation on how to use different Speed Types within the PeopleSoft Financials module.
These short video clips assist Users to visual see materials shown in the Documentation Training Guides. If there is a section in the Training Guides that may be unclear, PS FIN TIPS is the place to go. These "Tips" are organized according to function. For example, all videos related to Journal Entry Processing would begin with a JE in the title, then description. We hope these "tips" will assist those who are unable to understand the documentation or unable to attend "in-person" training. We will be adding "Tips" regularly to compliment the documentation.
This Site is dedicated to all Users who desire more guides, manuals, and tools to assist them in processing data within PeopleSoft Financials. It provides a "one-stop-shop" of helpful information. Your comments and recommendations are always welcome. Just call: 523-1139.
When goods or services need to be purchased and a Requisition (REQ) has been created and approved, PeopleSoft will automatically convert (source) the REQ into a Purchase Order (PO). Once the PO is sourced, it is sent (dispatched) to the Vendor. It is at this time, the Department may begin ordering the goods and services. Depending on the dollar amount and other restrictions, a PO may be created by the department (DPT) or by NAU's central procurement/purchasing unit (PUR). View these "How-To" guides on PO Processes in PeopleSoft.
When goods or services are needed, the first thing that needs to be done (if not using a Purchasing Card) is to Create a Requisition. Once the Requisition is submitted and approved, it will then be converted (sourced) into a Purchase Order from which vendors may be authorized to provide goods and services. View these "How-To" guide Creating Requisitions.
