Purchasing

The Purchasing Office exists to acquire goods and services for our University community customers in a timely, cost-effective, and efficient manner. Our goal is to perform a key role in facilitating this process consistent with Pepperdine's mission and within the scope of the University Financial Policies.

Purchasing Requisitions are generated through the PeopleSoft Financial System. They are used to request procurement of materials, supplies, equipment, and services. Approved faculty and staff can request purchases with departmental funds by submitting a purchasing requisition for approval before the purchase of goods and services is completed.

How Do I Issue a Purchasing Requisition?

  1. Submit a Finance Access Form
  2. Find an Existing  Vendor or Add a New Vendor
  3. Create a Requisition

To become a requestor, complete the online Finance Access Form. To select a vendor, we encourage employees to Find an Existing Vendor.  If necessary, Add a New Vendor by submitting a Vendor Application.  After the requisition is submitted and approved, it is built into a Purchase Order and issued to the Vendor. After goods are received or services rendered, the Vendor Requestor submits an invoice for payment to the Accounts Payable Office.
