(PO-1)
MUNIS Training Manual
Special Circumstances
The MUNIS software system does not assign a PO number to small dollar requests (orders less
than $1000.) These types of purchases are paid as direct invoice entry and PO numbers are not
required.
The following are the approved methods in which this type of purchase will need to be
processed in the new MUNIS software.
1. Use the District Procurement Card provided for small dollar purchases.
2. Enter a Requisition which can be approved and converted to a PO within 24 hours.
3. Use of the Petty Cash fund.
For those users who place large volume purchases and are currently utilizing the “See Attached
List” with their purchase orders the following are the approved methods:
1. For requests less than $1000.00, the District Procurement Card should be used. This
would include Internet orders.
2. For orders with 5 or less items to enter, these orders should be entered listing each line
item. “See Attached List” will not be accepted. If received as such, the Requisition will
be rejected for proper processing.
3. For large requests of 6 lines or more, users can continue to use the “See Attached List”
methodology.
