About This Document:
This document details how to use a Part Line Item in a Prendio Cart to create a Blanket Purchase Order. Often there is significant savings to be appreciated by negotiating large quantity purchases. You might not however want to receive the entire volume of items in a single shipment. A blanket order will allow you to release items as needed. As invoices are received, the qty of parts received will be deducted from the line and the order will remain open until the quantity is exhausted or the order is closed. BioProcure, Inc. is used as the supplier in this example.

Note: In this example, a Cart will be created requesting a quantity of 500 of the item. The notes to the Supplier and the Buyer explain that this is for a 12 month period, how many of the item are needed with the first request, and that more shipments will be requested as needed.

It is assumed that the Prendio Requester already knows how to create a Cart and Add a Part Line, so only the steps unique to this process are included.
