Select the Dell Vendor Contract in the Kuali Financial System (KFS)


A Requisition is an electronic document in the Kuali Financial System (KFS) that is used when goods or services need to be purchased. Requisitions should be used for large or complex purchases that need to be sent to the Department of Procurement and Strategic Sourcing for processing. Campus customers can enter a requisition by accessing KFS.
