Forms will be completed and submitted, normally 3 weeks in advance to enable the planning and procurement of the items/services in good time.

vi) The fully approved purchase requisition will be returned to the appointed person in charge of purchases

vii) Purchase requisitions should be consolidated as much as possible, to realize economies of scale

viii) Branches are hereby reminded that purchase requisitions should not be sub-divided so as to bypass the laid authority limits.
8.9. Request for Quotations

iii) The case is dealing with such an emergency such that it would not allow time for bidding process. This must be dealt on a case-by-case basis, and has to be approved by the chairman before awarding the order/contract.

The impact on delivery time will also be considered in selecting the supplier
8.11. Selection of Supplier
