Purchases originated in Bronco eBuy follow the same Purchasing Policies as required in Banner.
However, requisitioner now has total control of all purchases made using the Bronco eBuy Sciquest system. Only the Non-Catalog items and purchases made over a certain dollar amount are sent to the Purchasing Department. Purchase orders created in Bronco eBuy system is sent directly to the suppliers. The PO's created in Sciquest are no longer printed, but are stored in the system electronically.
The Purchasing Card Program was established to allow rapid purchases of repetitive or low dollar goods while simultaneously reducing paperwork and handling costs associated with these types of purchasing processes.
