Requests are used as sourcing events for supplier negotiations. Requests can be used to send offers to multiple suppliers, to receive their counter-offers, and to negotiate terms electronically.
Requisitions are used as internal forms to communicate the requirements of users within the company. Users that don’t have the permission to create purchase orders and/or communicate with suppliers directly can be given the option to create requisitions instead. This provides users with a way to route their requirements to the appropriate individual(s) within the company for approval and order processing.
Requisitioners are also able to track the status of each item on their requisition, including status updates for approvals and receiving deliveries
