The Purchase Order Follow-Up ISO Template helps verify, trace, or expedite orders. The Procurement Manager should follow up on shipping, delivery, expediting, and partial shipments of ordered items, to assist Production in maintaining consistent production flow and ensure other departments’ operational requirements are also met. The Procurement Manager may telephone vendors, keeping a record of follow-up activity with the Purchase Order, or use QP1220-4 PURCHASE ORDER FOLLOW-UP.
The Purchase Order Follow-Up ISO Template covers whether the shipment was made, if the price and terms match the quotation, if the calculations noted are correct, etc. Keep in mind all employees requiring products or services for production of the company’s products must complete purchase requisitions specifying items for purchase and obtain required approvals. The Procurement Manager is responsible for evaluating suppliers, maintaining raw material inventories, placing orders with approved suppliers, negotiating pricing with suppliers, and forwarding all paperwork to Accounts Payable for vendor/shipper payment.
