This policy outlines the circumstances in which employees are allowed to bypass the company policy requiring all purchasing commitments be made via the procurement department. The bypass form documents the reason that a purchase order (PO) has been requested after the fact of the start of a service or delivery of goods and allows regular management reporting of these policy exceptions and counseling of individual requestors.

In this sample, all procurement requests are to be processed via submittal of an approved purchase requisition and issue of a PO or, in the case of inventory items, via an approved master schedule or ILQ.
