1. Introduction to Purchase Order Invoice

Purchase Requisition:
The Purchase Requisition is the procedural method by which departments may request the
purchase of goods and services, the nature of the purchase or the type of goods and services.
Purchase Requisitions are entered into the FMS (Field Management System).
Purchase Order:
A purchase order (PO) is a commercial document issued by a buyer to a seller indicating the
type, quantities and agreed prices for products or services, the seller will provide to the buyer.
A purchase order usually contains: PO number, shipping date, billing address, shipping address,
terms of payment (usually in the form of Net 30, NET 45) depending on requirements set by the
seller), and a list of services/products, often including specifications and reference or part
numbers of the items to be purchased, with quantities and prices. When accepted by the seller
it forms an agreement between buyer and seller.
An invoice or bill is a commercial document issued by a seller to a buyer, indicating the
products, quantities and agreed prices for products or services which the seller has already
provided to the buyer.
Detailed Work Instruction:
The Scanned Images are received through DFM and are sorted based on the document
received. Eg; PO Invoices, Non-PO Invoices,
A PO Invoice is identified by the Purchase Order number on the Invoice. If there is no PO
number on the invoice, it has to be treated as the Non-PO invoice.
For viewing, the invoice image Log on to DFM using your User Id and Password.

invoice image log on to DFM using your user ID & Password.
