Estimated Order Value - I don't know the exact value of my order, what should I do?


Question:
Estimated Order Value - I don't know the exact value of my order, what should I do?
Answer:

If you don't know the exact value, or if there will be a number of invoices over a period of time, you can enter an estimated total.

For an estimated order of £2,500, you enter 2,500 in the quantity field and £1 in the value field.

You should then receipt 300 units if the first invoice is for £300.

Details of how to do this are in module 4 of the purchasing eLearning on the Learning Resources page.
