There is a new electronic requisition process that is now available campus-wide. Begin the process by accessing the SharePoint requisition intake system. Please note that this does not replace the need to create a requisition in Colleague/Datatel, but it is a uniform way to submit backup documentation, provide crucial information to the Purchasing Office, and allows for Budget Officer approval through the SharePoint system instead of in Colleague/Datatel.
Training sessions for the new submission process is available monthly. Sign up for Training.
Beginning October 1 the SharePoint system will be the only allowable way to submit requisition documentation and Budget Officer approvals.
A requisition is an online form in Colleague/Datatel (REQM) used for the acquisition for goods or services.
Create a requisition electronically using the Colleague/Datatel Financial System. Training is required before authorization is given to do this. Instructions for access to Colleague/Datatel can be found at https://accountingoffice.illinoisstate.edu/datatel/account/. Requisition training is available on the Purchasing website main page under "University Resources". Attachments for the requisition must be submitted via SharePoint requisition intake system.
When two or more account numbers will be used to pay for a single requisition, we will need to know the amount each account should encumber. If the accounts are from different departments, we will need the approval of all departments to move forward. For any special requirements, please contact Purchasing.
If there are multiple vendors or a specific point of contact, the name, address, phone, and email address should be put in the Printed Comments field.
