Things that apply to all buying

Purchase order (PO)

The vast majority of all buying should be done using a PO. We have a No PO No Pay policy which means that all goods and services bought need a PO to be raised and approved beforehand. POs should be raised through the York e-Purchase (YEP) ordering system

There are a small number items which are exempt from having to raise a PO.


For further help and guidance, book onto the Buying goods and services and paying for them training course via the Learning Management System (LMS).
