From the Main Menu in the Finance System, click Purchase Orders (located in the upper right box labeled Custom Document Searches).
Enter the PO number and click Search.
When you get the results, click Return Value on the top (most recent) version of the PO
In the Notes and Attachments Tab, type a note requesting the change(s) that need(s) to be made to the order—and any other relevant info (amended POs need to be electronically approved by the Fiscal Officer, so include details the FO needs to know).
Browse for the saved quote (if adding items) or invoice (if amending the PO to allow payment); attach the document.
Note: Do not select an Attachment Type; it’s not required. Also, Quote is only available for use by a Purchasing Contract Manager—you’ll get an error message if it’s selected. In the Finance System Quote = Bid.
Click ADD to add the note and quote.
Search for the person’s name in the Notification Recipient column.
Select the name (or type in the person’s Net ID and click elsewhere on the screen to populate the field).
