Blanket Purchase Order

Blanket purchase orders are often suitable for low-value materials and are used to procure consumable or indirect materials and services that are regularly ordered from the same supplier or vendor. Blanket purchase orders are suitable for a longer term such as for a year or two or more than two years and with a value limit.

Business Scenario

Now we will discuss one practical example of a blanket purchase order a business that supplies their offices with cleaning and attendant supplies or they want to purchase stationery from a supplier, ordered on a weekly or monthly basis. This organization must use a blanket purchase order rather than creating a separate purchase order each time they need supplies or need stationary materials. Whenever the materials are consumed or services are performed, an invoice is posted in the system with reference to the purchase order and no goods receipts are posted in the system
