All new NIU business that requires a purchase requisition must be submitted using electronic requisition workflow. Paper requisitions will only be accepted for changes to existing NIU business that originated with a paper requisition or any NIU Foundation business. Check requests will continue to be processed using the existing form by Accounts Payable Services. View the requester and approver guides.
