About Open Orders

Buying Channels for Open Order Suppliers

The Open Order system is in the process of transitioning suppliers to one of three buying channels—Spartan Marketplace, requisitions, or Pcard. Eventually, the Open Orders system will be phased out.

Supplier payment is handled by Purchasing. Invoices received by departments must be forwarded to Open Orders, Angell Building, 166 Service Rd.

Open Orders charges department accounts through the Finance System. The charge is processed when the invoice is received and proof of delivery is obtained as evidenced by a packing slip or a University Stores delivery slip. Monthly statements are available through the Service Provider Billing (SPB) document. Payment approvals are forwarded to Accounts Payable.

Open Order Restrictions
Single release cannot exceed $2500 or $4999 for certain strategic suppliers (call for exceptions).


Open Orders can be accessed after login to EBS. Look in the Resources section of the page.

You may also go directly to the Open Orders page with your MSU NetID.
