Fiscal Agent Handbook Index | Forms Instructions Index

The Requisition is used to procure goods other than paper and supplies listed on the Paper and Supplies Order & Voucher form or services that do not meet the acceptance test for the use of a Direct Payment Voucher or for minor reimbursement through petty cash.  Each Requisition may not contain more than one sub code classification; i.e., contractual (1200), commodities (1300), equipment (1500).

The Requisition is a sequentially numbered two part form that is available in moderate quantities at no cost from Printing Services using the Forms Requisition. The form can also be ordered using the on-line Forms Requisition on the Controller's Office Resources web site at http://www.neiu.edu/~finanaff.
