For Requisitioners

A CPCC requisitioner will utilize two systems to encumber College funds.  The NC E-Procurement system and the CPCC Colleague system.  At all times, expected expenses from CPCC vendors that can not pay via P-card must be encumbered thru the NC E-Procurement system prior to services being rendered or goods being ordered.  At year end, internal charges such as P-card, postage and travel will be encumbered thru our CPCC Colleague system.  Contact your buyer with questions.


E-Procurement:  E-Procurement is a state wide purchasing system used to encumber College funds to CPCC vendors.  Prior to a requisition being entered, the CPCC vendor must already exist in or must register with the NC E-Procurement system.  E-Procurement provides job aids and training videos regarding how to enter a requisition in the E-Procurement system, username and password required.  Click on the E-Procurement link in the left margin to view job aid/training video links, information on receiving a username and password, E-Procurement contact information or to search for registered vendors.

Note:  Contact Human Resources first and submit the appropriate forms to ensure that consultants are eligible to be hired as contractors.

Colleague:  Colleague is the internal system for CPCC.  At year end, internal expenses for p-card, postage and travel are encumbered thru Colleague.  Click the below link to view instructions on entering a requisition in Colleague.

Office Supply Purchases

  • Forms and Supply, Inc  is the vendor for general office supplies on the state term contract 615A. 
  • If pricing is lower than state contract or you have buyer-approved justification, you must keep a printout of this comparison with your P-Card receipt and include it with your FS-25 for auditing purposes. Failure to do so may result in revocation of your P-Card.
  • Computers priced less than $1,000 are minor equipment and may not be purchased using the P-Card.
