Blanket Orders are used for transactions that occur frequently, have a high variation of product types, have undetermined timing, and are not available in Buckeye Buy. Not to be used for 'GOODS', only Services.
Accounts Payable advises users to include the service to be provided and frequency in the description line of the requisition. It will also be helpful to include the expected term agreement details in the memo to supplier field (example, $50.00/month for 12 months).
Please note: if this is a renewal PO, remember to inidicate the old PO# in a comment or memo box.
Blanket Purchase Orders can be used for leasing postage equipment. Please use: Quadient Leasing and Pitney Bowes Inc. for the equipment leasing agreements. If your agreement is still current, you can upload that same agreement for each new Purchase Order for the years that it covers. Otherwise, please contact the company to obtain a new agreement to attach as a quote in the requisition.
Previous guidance was that the OPERS form was needed with the vendor setup form when paying an individual for a service. It appears now that any payments (excluding reimbursements or miscellanenous payments for youth awards) to an individual, or sole proprietor, for goods or services requires the OEPRS form along with the vendor setup form (primarily for requisitions).
REMINDER: work with the new suppliers to not send their Vendor Setup form to the address on the form, but to return it to you, to be uploaded into Workday. Sending to that address (BF-PRSM-Webform@osu.edu) will not get them added into the system.
The form is to be updated, but until it is- be sure that you request it be sent to you.
