At the top of the page are some filter options – you can do a quick search for the vendor

vendor number.
Click on the vendor you want and the system will automatically go back to your PO entry
screen and populate the required fields with the vendor information.
Select the Budget Manager Code from the drop down menu. This should automatically

When you use Gross amount you will not have to do any receiving in the web portal but
you will have to count and send in packing slips. You will also not put any quantities on
your Purchase order.
You will have to place your order on an order form which will be attached to the
Purchase Order. The order form will have all the details on it and you will just input the
gross amount on the Purchase Order. Online Order forms are fine. You need to put in
the gross amount to invoice including taxes.
Please go to the shipping tab. In the shipping label fill out the schools shipping address.
Now go back to the “General Tab” at the top of the purchase order.
Click on the save at bottom of the screen.

The next step will be to add the order lines to your purchase order.
You will note an ADD LINE at the bottom of the screen.

If “Gross Amount Including Tax” has been selected in the Order Line tax Calc. Field,
enter the gross amount of the Purchase and fill in Gross Amount to Invoice. These two
columns will be the same but need to be entered.
Check to make sure that the tax code on the line (far right field) is the same as on the
top part of the purchase order.
Once you have completed all the information on the GL line you must add the line in
order for the computer to accept what you have typed. If you can not get back to the
add line button click in the last fill in box that you see on the left and hold the shift key
and press tab until you are at the start of the line.

screen and hit the Post Encumb. button. You will get a pop up window telling you that
the encumberance was posted successfully. If you don’t encumber it will not show up
on the webportal reports in the encumbered columns. This is very important!!
