The Purchase Order is a formal contract to buy goods or services. When CRS and the vendor sign it, it becomes a legal obligation to purchase under the terms and conditions specified in the Order.
These forms should be formally printed out by a commercial printer, pre-numbered, on carbon-copy paper, with an original and one copy.
If we write a separate, special contract with a vendor, we attach that contract to the next Purchase Order form and use the Purchase Order number to refer to the purchase.
This form is not required (by this manual, check with your CP for local procedures) for any purchases valued under USD 500. But it is required for purchases valued at USD 500 and above.
