--Using a Requisition to get internal approval for the purchase and possibly the supplier.
--Going out to bid in the event organization policy dictates a bidding process is needed
-- Selecting the supplier if not already approved during the requisition stage.
-- Conversion of the items on a Requisition and possibly combining the items from other requisitions into one or more Purchase Orders.
