Standing Orders

If the department has need of purchasing repetitive, specified services or items from a single supplier, a Standing Order (SO) can be initiated in order to obtain more favorable pricing or service through volume commitments.

This allows a department to quickly request delivery of goods and services and avoids the cost of additional PO's to the supplier.

The SO is limited to a certain amount for the entire year and does not represent a free license to buy goods or services not specified on the original requisition.
