Abstract: The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, and most important, is to review mechanized purchase order controls at Brooklyn Union Gas Co. Second, and equally interesting, is to review the sequence of events that led to mechanization. The control of purchase orders in Brooklyn Union is the joint responsibility of the Materials Management Department (the purchasing function) and the Accounting Department (the payment function). Approximately 10,000 purchase orders are issued aimually at a total value of 73,000,000 and resulting in the processing of 120,000 vendor invoices. The decision to mechanize purchase order controls was based on our particular needs. These needs may be very similar to or very different from the needs of your organization.
