The Requestor is the individual (user) who initiates the electronic purchase of goods and services.

This training material is also applicable for an “On Behalf Of’ Requestor – an individual who orders for themselves or for their department. These users may typically be faculty members or graduate students who do not have access to Banner Finance and will need to order ‘On Behalf Of’ someone in their department who does.

If you are a HokieMart Requestor and Receiver, please take the Requestor session first. This will build a good foundation for you and serve as an introduction to HokieMart.

A Receiver is defined as an individual who will be responsible for keying into the system the actual goods and services receiving information. This may be different from the person who actually sees the delivery being made or verifies the items from the packing slip at the time of delivery.
