What is the difference between a cyBUY Requisition (REQ) number, a cyBUY Purchase Order (PO) number, and a cyBUY Procurement Card Transaction Verification (PCV) number?


A cyBUY REQ or Requisition number (ex:  REQ-xxxxxx) is the number assigned to an order once it has been submitted in Workday for approval or saved as a draft in Workday (see images below).

 

A cyBUY PO or Purchase Order (ex:  PO-xxxxxx) is created after the requisition has been approved by a Procurement and Expense Specialist and is the number that is submitted to the supplier.  Suppliers do not receive the requisition number (see images below).

 

A cyBUY PCV or Procurement Card Transaction Verification (ex:  PCV-xxxxxx) is created after the order is shipped from the supplier and the payment transaction from the supplier posts to Workday.  The PCV is the equivalent of an invoice that gets charged to the PO (see images below).

 

 

You can find your Requisition number and the PO number for your requisitions by using the My Requisitions report in Workday.

The My Requisitions report can be found by typing My Requisitions in the search bar at the top of Workday OR Under the Procurement application on the Workday homepage, you will find it in the column on the right, under Campus Reports. A Workday Job Aid for the report is also available.

 

You can find your PCV number using either the ISU cyBUY PO and PCV Transaction Report or, if you have already found the PO, the PCV’s may be included in the  Business Document Lines section of each of the goods lines on the PO.

When looking for all PCVs relating to a specific PO, you should only enter the PO# in the ISU cyBUY PO and PCV Transaction Report (see image below).

 

 

 

How can I check the status of my order?


See if a Purchase Order (PO) has been created using the My Requisitions report.  

To confirm your order has been sent to the supplier, click on the PO number from the My Requisitions report results and scroll down to the Goods Lines.

Click on the Process History tab just above the Goods Lines. 

  • If the Process History shows a Purchase Order XML Issue Event (see image below), the order has been sent to the supplier and you will need to contact them directly to check the status of your order.
  • If you are checking on an order submitted through Amazon, B&H Photo, Bio-Rad, CDW, Dell, Fisher, Henry Schein, Office Depot, or Sigma you can search your order history within their individual catalogs in cyBUY to find the status of your order.
  • You can also contact the supplier by phone or email.

Contact information for each of the cyBUY suppliers can be found in the General Information box in the top right corner of the cyBUY Marketplace main page.

 

 

I see my order under the Recent Transactions within the cyBUY Marketplace, does that mean the order was submitted?


No, while the Recent Transactions in the cyBUY Marketplace does show the items you have recently added to your cart, it does not mean that an order has been placed. 

  • For an order to be placed, your items must be transferred to a Workday cart, the Requisition submitted for approval, and a Purchase Order created.   Please see the  How do I access and use cyBUY through Workday? section of this FAQ for a step by step walkthrough of the entire ordering process or you can access the  Workday Job Aid.

What is a spend category and what if I need to change it?


A spend category is used to describe what is being purchased, not what the item will be used for. For example, ink cartridges for a printer that will be used to print marketing materials, would have a spend category of SC10486 Office Supplies, not SC10316 Advertising – Other. A list of spend categories, including a description of each spend category, arranged by commodity area can be found on the Spend Categories by Commodity Area Webpage.

  • When ordering from most cyBUY suppliers, the spend category will automatically populate when the items are added to your cart. 
  • Please review the spend categories to make sure they correctly describe what is being purchased before submitting the Workday Checkout screen.
  • If you have already clicked submit on the Workday Checkout screen, contact your ISD Procurement and Expense Specialist (PES) ( finance_delivery@iastate.edu) or email a member of our cyBUY team (cybuy@iastate.edu) for assistance changing the spend category.
    • In your email requesting assistance changing the spend category, please include the REQ number, the item number(s), and the correct spend category for each item number.
