The Purchasing Requests service streamlines the process of submitting, verifying, and processing requests to purchase goods and services. The Service Center of Excellence will process requests for the purchase of goods and services over $5,000.00 for all Finance and Operations departments as well as ePro orders for Facilities Services.
