TEAM Requisition Number Prefix Guide for Requisition and Purchase Order Numbers
The Purchasing Division receives over 2,000 new requisitions a year, excluding change orders to existing contracts. The requisitions originate from 166 state agencies (as we define them) and the resulting purchase orders often stay active for two or three years. For us, a requisition numbering scheme is not just a good idea, it is a matter of survival! If two or more agencies send us a requisition and refer to it as Requisition Number 13, how do we tell them apart? Our solution is to assign them prefixes.
Obviously, there are other numbering schemes and some are better than others. Pre-assigned blocks of numbers are one option; computer generated numbers are another. However, the prefix method has advantages that appeal to the Purchasing Division including:
All agencies have an assigned prefix to use with their requisition numbers, the sole exception being the Division of Highways. The complete list is printed below. If you have any questions, please contact the Purchasing Division's Technical Services Unit at 304-558-7839 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
