Receive purchase order
All requests for goods/services should be supported by an official purchase order issued by the buyer. If the order has come from another University of Oxford department refer to the Internal Trade process for details on the steps required as a Selling department.
Record purchase order
On receipt of an external order for goods or services, whether it be received by post, e-mail, online, fax, telephone or face-to-face, the details must be recorded on a spreadsheet, order book, or similar. Where appropriate, the order should be checked against any contractual agreement. The details recorded should include a customer purchase order reference and/or contact name/number.
