What you can expect from Purchasing
Almost all requisitions are processed within 1-5 working days after they are received in our department. Inadequate information on your requisition will delay the processing of a Purchase Order.
We have a routine follow-up system, however you should feel free to request a special follow-up.

What you cannot expect from Purchasing
- Technical Evaluation & Decisions
We need your expertise on this.
- Changing Requisitions Without Notice
Unless it is a minor change - (e.g. wrong address, transposed numbers). Major changes are referred back to you.
- Error Free Performance
From time to time we do make errors. So call us and point them to us. We will gladly correct them.
- Purchase Order Numbers
We cannot issue a P.O. number prior to receiving a properly executed requisition unless it is an emergency situation.
- Status of Order
We will not be able to tell you the status on your order unless you tell us the control number of the requisition or PO number. So please make sure to have one of those numbers on hand before you call us. It is just a wast of time and energy on your part and ours.
