Purchasing Services

Lawson Information and Forms

Lawson is the University's ERP (enterprise resource planning) system that provides functionality for the requisitioning, purchasing, inventory control, receiving, and accounts payable activities.

The E-requisition or RSS (requisition self service) module provides the ability for end users to enter requisitions for goods and services online.  The requisition is electronically routed based on a hierarchy for approval for specified account units.  Once approved, the requisition is sent electronically to Purchasing to process the purchase order.  Inquiry screens allow users to see real time information at any time in the sequence of the procure to payment cycle.
