Procurement Training

The Workday Financial Management system assists employees with the procurement of goods and services as well as the payment of suppliers and vendors.


Requisitions allow you to purchase goods and services without using a University bank card. You can create, view, and edit three types of Requisitions in Workday: Search Catalog, Request Non-Catalog Items, and Connect to Supplier Website.

  • Search Catalog allows you to purchase at-cost items from the BYU-Idaho Stores and Receiving Catalog.  
  • Request Non-Catalog Items allows you to make larger or more expensive purchases that might require assistance from the Purchasing department. All requisitions over $3,500, capital equipment, software, or larger volume items mustbe purchased using the Request Non-Catalog Items process. 
  • Connect to Supplier Website, or punchouts, allow you to connect to a contracted supplier’s website (like Amazon and Staples) in order to purchase items at contracted rates without using a University bank card.
