Purchasing

Amount Only

"Amount Only" is a Fast setting that allows a purchase order to be received by amount rather than by quantity.

This setting is used when specific items, and therefore prices, are unknown.  Their use is limited.  Commodities that are already under contract such as laboratory supplies, and subagreements with reimbursable costs are appropriate uses.

Most purchases using this setting are purchases allowed by PCard, which is the preferred method for departments to use.

Quote requirements are still in force.
