Purchase Order Requirements

Use of a PO is one of our sourcing/procurement policies and a requirement for all purchases (currently in the U.S. and Canada) of goods/services.

This policy applies to all Fiserv associates (currently in the U.S. and Canada) and our suppliers are required to adhere to this policy.

A unique PO number will be generated for each approved goods or services requisition with a copy sent to the supplier’s identified contact person. Refer to the Fiserv PO sample document for explanations of each PO field.

Note: POs for software will include instructions to deliver all proof of entitlements, certificates of authenticity, keys or other proof of ownership documentation.

To ensure timely and accurate payment, PO numbers must be included on the corresponding invoice(s).

Situations will arise in which a PO is not required for certain suppliers or goods/services (e.g., rent, utilities, legal, etc.). In those instances, there will be no PO number to reference on your invoice. Instead, a Fiserv contact’s name and email address must be included on all non-PO invoices. Failure to include this contact information on an invoice could result in a delayed or non-payment.
