Answer:

Raise an Requistion using Estimated Value .

This will allow you to place an Order with the supplier for the estimate he gives you but also allow you to include a maximum amount which you believe is likely and reasonable.

If you create a requisition, you can give the courier the order number which will mean the invoice will be paid once the delivery is receipted.

If you do not create a requisition, the invoice will be routed to the department via workflow for coding and authorisation.
