Requesting a Quote (If needed)

So before we get to how to properly complete a school purchase order, let’s discuss the quote. Depending on your school’s protocol, you may or may not be required to obtain a quote first from the wholesale distributor. Usually this is for someone else from your school or department to sign off on the price. As you gain experience with the P.O. and develop a relationship with your wholesaler, you may wish to skip this step in the future.
