Firstly the concerned department sends a requisition to Purchase Department.For that requisition Purchase Department searches for Available Suppliers ( Sometimes from Old Database or by New market research).With this information they discuss the requirement with suppliers and then prepare Comparative Rates Statement and keeping in view the reasonable rate, the lead time available and the terms of payment offered etc the supplier is finalized and then the Purchase Order is prepared for that Supplier.

A PO is created because there is an interest in a product.  We make an agreement with an organization to purchase a product or service.  We then enter the agreement in a program, such as HOD, outlining the quantity, the product, the coding to issue payment to, the PO #, and an amount is set up in that account to pay the matching invoice when the service has been rendered and/or the product has been received.
