1. An accurate description and specification for every item listed, including    catalog numbers, size, color, etc., but not so restrictive as to unduly limit competitive bidding.

2.  Authorized Fund, Org, and Account numbers.

3.  Delivery instructions, stating specifically:             
            a.  date delivery is required
            b.  delivery location (building and room).

4.  Estimated cost for each item.

5.  Recommended supplier(s), if known

6.  If pricing was obtained, the quotation(s) should be noted on the requisition.  Copies of all quotes and other relevant information should be submitted with the requisition or referenced on electronic requisitions and sent via fax or campus mail.

7.  Signature authority requirements are met through the University's value-based security system (see Requisitioning Authority, Purchasing Manual, 1.B).
