Summary of Changes/Comments
October 31, 2018 - Approval limits have been updated as per approved ICF ones.

October 24, 2018 - The threshold for the use of E-requisitions where a PO is also not required was increased from USD 2,500, to USD 5,000 in section 17 of the Purchase Orders policy, as well as step 1 of the Purchase Orders procedures. For all travel related transactions see POPP Duty Travel.

As per UN Board of Auditor’s recommendation, the use of multi-year POs is reflected for projects for greater efficiency and better track of activities with a supplier (this update was made in November 2016). Content reviewed and edited (without changing substance) in December 2015.
