SRM Requisitioner (Belfast City Council staff Only)

  • Course duration

    Two half-day courses

  • Course description

    The SRM (Supplier Relationship Management) application is used to simplify and accelerate the procure-to-pay process for goods and services. It is used to buy goods and services through an internet based platform, producing an individual purchase order for each approved shopping cart.

    Once received, the ordered goods or services can then be receipted through SRM. The SRM Requisitioner course introduces the user to all the facilities in the SRM Requisitioner role, for example, creating a purchase order, confirming receipt of an order and dealing with rejected orders.
