10.2 Documents required through the procurement process
|Purchase Requisition Form
|All purchases require the staff member who is requesting the goods to submit an approved purchase requisition form to the procurement unit. The form must be signed by an authorised signatory within the financial limits established by the CO’s finance and purchasing policy. In an emergency, these limits should be increased automatically to help with more rapid procurement (refer to section 3).
If using PeopleSoft this functionality and workflow approval is in the system.
|Tracking of request for quotes and responses||All RFQs that are sent out should be logged and tracked. All corresponding responses from vendors should also be logged. This will ensure that there is a clear record of bids, and will help with tracking of who has and who has not sent in their bids. If using PeopleSoft and approved vendors this functionality is in the system.||Annex 16.6|
|Summary of Bid Analysis||Prepare and maintain a Summary of Bid Analysis for each purchase and ensure this is filed in the Master Purchase Order file.||Annex 16.8|
|Sole/Single-Source Justification Form||If a decision is made to source from only one provider (refer to section 6.3), a Sole or Single-Source Justification Form must be completed and filed.||Annex 16.11|
|Purchase Orders||When vendors have been selected, all purchases must be confirmed by issuing a purchase order. The purchase order forms the contract for the purchase of goods.
The CO should have or implement a standard purchase order form. The purchase order must include some standard clauses and terms and conditions that are normally printed on the reverse of the purchase order.
If using PeopleSoft the purchase order is generated in the system from an approved requisition.
|Annex 16.9 Annex 16.10|
|Tracking of purchase orders||All purchase orders must be tracked using a control log for purchase orders. This log must be stored in a secure location. PeopleSoft users will use system functionality to create report.||Annex 16.12|
|Received Goods||When goods have been received, the following documents should be completed and filed:
|Master Purchase Order files||Files for each individual purchase should be maintained with copies of all relevant documentation, including:
