All information should be entered into the Purchase Order Log Template after the Purchase Order is complete. Buyers must review their purchase orders for accuracy. The buyer signs the Purchase Order indicating the review was performed.
Note: computerized accounting systems may generate the Purchase Order and then post to the Purchase Order Journal Log.
Orders can be placed with the vendor either by telephone, fax, internet, or mail. When placing orders by telephone, the vendor contact, and date of order should be noted and a confirming copy of the order sent to the vendor.
