Cancelling requisitions and orders

Cancelling purchase requisitions

A requisition is an internal document and can be cancelled at the discretion of the financial unit.

However, once an order has been created from the requisition, a contract has been entered into and it cannot be cancelled unless the supplier cannot deliver the goods or services requested. 

If under any circumstances a requisition or an order needs to be cancelled or amended, you must refer the matter immediately by phone or fax to the Purchasing section for action. 

Cancelling standard orders

An order can only be cancelled if the supplier cannot fulfil the contract or by negotiation between the University and the supplier. 

If you wish to cancel an order, forward a request in writing to the Manager of the Purchasing section.

When an order is cancelled, funds committed for it are automatically returned to the account from which the order came.
