A requisition is a request to initiate or encumber funds needed for orders to vendors for things like supplies, equipment, and services.
If you or your department would like to purchase supplies, materials, equipment, and service required for City operations, you must first submit a requisition using Tyler Eden. For assistance, please contact the Finance Department.
A Purchase Order (PO) is a contract for suppliers to provide goods/services to the City and for the City to pay for those goods/services according to the agreed terms. Before a purchase order gets issued, a requisition needs to be created.
A purchase order is the most common and generally preferred method of procurement. It establishes the parties involved, the products purchased, pricing, terms and conditions of the purchase. The purchase order establishes a legally enforceable contract. Purchase orders are generated from a properly authorized requisition (using Tyler Eden) and distributed to the vendor.
