Business Process for Modifying Internal Purchase Orders

Dear Rutgers Colleagues-

Given the large number of internal purchase orders (IPOs) in use within the University, University Procurement Services (Procurement Services) would like to clarify the business process for modifying IPOs.

While  Procurement Services does not review or approve the creation of IPOs, the RU Marketplace application currently requires all requests for changes to IPOs to be routed to Procurement Services for review/approval. 

Changes You Should Be Aware Of

  • Moving forward, please note that Procurement Services will automatically approve and implement all IPO related modification requests regardless of dollar amount, expansion of scope, etc.  However,  Procurement Services will not confirm or communicate the changes to the servicing department. 
  • It shall be the responsibility of the requesting department to communicate the changes to the servicing department as required.

If you have any questions, please send an email to the Procurement Services help desk at

Thank you for your cooperation.
