Common Elements Used in Change Requests

Field or Control


Change Request

A transaction containing changes to a requisition that has already been sourced to one or more purchase orders. Once the changed requisition has been budget checked and approved (if necessary), the change request is picked up by the Change Purchase Orders process in PeopleSoft Purchasing and used to update the purchase order and create a change order for dispatched purchase orders.

Change Order

A copy of a dispatched purchase order that highlights changes to the original purchase order that has already been sent to the supplier. The change order alters the original dispatched purchase order and is submitted to the supplier. You can create a change order in PeopleSoft Purchasing. A change request created in PeopleSoft eProcurement can become a change order in PeopleSoft Purchasing.
