A cart submitted for approval is now a Purchase Requisition (PR) in a KUPPS approval folder.  Any Approver for that department or project can open the applicable approval folder and approve or reject the PR. Once approved, a purchase order (PO) is sent to the supplier and a PO is created in FSKU to encumber the transaction for DEMIS reporting.

  • Catalog (punch-out) suppliers are sent electronic PO’s; e-invoices return to KUPPS automatically creating PO vouchers in FSKU.

Non-catalog suppliers are faxed/emailed PO’s; suppliers return paper/PDF invoices that workflow through ImageNow creating PO vouchers in FSKU.
