Creating Multi-Year Requisitions

Requisitions are entered by the requester. If the requester knows that the request for goods or services is for a future year, the MYI can be entered on the Requisition line. If the MYI is entered on the Requisition line, funds are not committed. Separate requisition lines can be created for the current year and each future year's amounts, or the requisition line can be split by the buyer on the purchase order line. Current year requisitions should not have a MYI.

If the requester does not know if the request for goods or services is for a future year, the MYI indicator is not placed on the Requisition line. Funds are checked and committed, according to Purchasing policy.

Before a Purchase Order can be created from the Requisition, the Requisition must be approved. The requisition total appearing on the Requisition Approval Screen (RAS) includes current year and future year lines. The approver approves the entire requisition in the current year.
