Procure to Pay (P2P) Tip of the Week

A requisition is an internal document that requests permissions/approvals to purchase goods or services.  A vendor never sees this document.

A Purchase Order, or P.O., is the external document requesting the goods or services from a vendor.  A P.O. is also a legal document, and can be used for audit purposes as well.

Both documents require internal approvals in order to be issued.
