Document Layout

The Requisition document is quite long. An example is shown below in four parts.

The Requisition document includes several unique tabs—Delivery, Vendor, Items, Capital Asset, Payment Info, Additional Institution Info, Account Summary, View Related Documents, and View Payment History.

Unlike a standard financial e-doc, there is no Accounting Lines tab, and the document header and the Document Overview tab are slightly different.
