Slide 8 Creating a Blanket Purchase Order Shopping Cart A BLPO (Blanket Purchase Order) is used when you need to procure goods or services with a not to exceed dollar limit within a specific time period. A BLPO shopping cart becomes a blanket purchase order, once approved and created by Supply Chain Shared Services. A BLPO is a variation of a free text shopping cart. Some differences between a blanket purchase order and a standard purchase order include: - You may not know the price per unit that will be invoiced. - The required on date is when the service is expected to end. - You will create several confirmations on the purchase order.

Slide 10 Confirming a Blanket Purchase Order A confirmation is needed for the BLPO (Blanket Purchase Order) in order to pay the invoices that are posted to the purchase order. If you receive an invoice that references the Blanket Purchase Order, confirm the dollar amount, and then send the invoice to Accounts Payable Shared Services for processing. If you do not receive the invoice first, then you will receive a blocked invoice work item notice. You can confirm the dollar amount of the invoice in the work item. Access the work items in the ECC Inbox.
