Supplier Part Numbers

When entering a non-catalog line item, it is important to include the  item’s Part ID, when available, in the ‘Supplier Part Number’ field. Entering the Part ID as part of the ‘Description’ is not recommended, as it can slow the vendor’s processing time. Absence of the ‘Supplier Part Number’ may also slow the processing time, resulting in delayed shipment of items. Entering the Part ID into the ‘Supplier Part Number’ field will allow the order to be processed much more quickly.

For more information on entering non-catalog items, please review the ‘eRequisition Non-Catalog Item’ job aid on the NC E-Procurement User Training web site.
