*Information on material is there.

48

• Reviewing MRP for proper order procedure

Example would be to see if item is stores stocked (Zi) or contract item (ZZ).

49

purchase requisition

an internal document used for initiating an order to the purchasing department for goods and services

50

• Release orders are processed

against an out-line agreement contract

51

• Direct sales solicitation by suppliers should be

referred to standards

52

• All purchase requisitions should be

approved by planners/supervisors/management

53

• Ordering of PVC conduit for common carrier load through central stores is accomplished by

an email form

54

• A specialty item (non-coded) is

stores materials which is not centrally stocked at all stocking store rooms (all of above).

55

• Material ordered from a stocked storeroom may not be

available in all cases

56

• Review of quantities and descriptions of incoming orders at central stores is done by the

OSS (clerks).
