New Purchase Order Layout as of July 1st, 2017

Purchasing Services is using the PeopleSoft-delivered Purchase Order.

  • POs have a new look, but still include all the same information they currently do.
  • UVM vendors were notified in June about the new format and reminded to not ship product or begin services until they have received a UVM-authorized purchase order prior to processing any order. 
  • In addition, UVM vendors will be requested to submit invoices to UVM with a valid purchase order # included to help expedite payment processing.
