Reviewing Blanket Indicators
Approvers should verify that the 'Blanket Purchase' indicator has been selected correctly. It is not enough to say, “This is a blanket order” in the description.

If the'Blanket Purchase'indicator is not selected on the 'Line Item Details' screen, the purchase order will not be treated as a blanket order and the actual items will have to be received rather than receiving the specified dollar amount. In addition, the possibility of the purchase order being closed before it should be increases because Accounts Payable will have to do additional research to determine why all of the goods have not been received.

For further information on approving please view the Approving section on the User Training page of this web site.
