ePro is for purchasing items not available on eBuy or by using a PCard, such as:
- Items that require a Purchase Order
- All transactions over $25,000
- Purchases that require special approval
- Orders over PCard and eBuy purchase limits
ePro lets you create an electronic purchase request and then automatically manages the online workflow approval process in order to streamline your purchase. Once you (the Requestor) enter a requisition, an approved Requisition Approver reviews it, checks for funds availability, and then routes the requisition back to us in Procurement so that we can create a Purchase Order.
To submit an order, download, print and complete the ePro Requisition Worksheet and hand it to a Requisition Preparer for processing. Please include applicable forms found on the Acquisition Preparation Matrix.
Monitoring Purchases – A query is available in BAR called Purchases with Line Detail that can be run by anyone to look up the purchases made by requestor, buyer, certifier, or vendor. It can also be run to identify purchases by project and project activity or vendor, and other parameters.
You can use this query to monitor the purchases made by your staff or in your area to ensure appropriateness and allowability.
