Welcome to PROC 201 - Requisitioner

The PROC 201 self-guided curriculum is designed to instruct and provide helpful tips to Requisitioners. In addition to the RIFANS Requisitioner Manual, Procurement Guides, Instructions, Checklists, and Forms are included in PROC 201.

Procurement Processes for Requisitioners

Resource materials are classified into two categories

  • Learning & System Guidance and Checklist Curriculum

    Get best practice materials for understanding the procurement business processes and use of the RIFANS system for procurements. The comprehensive RIFANS Requisitioner Manual is accompanied by stand-alone RIFANS Instructions and Checklists for high-use processes, or to provide clarity in areas where we recognize frequency in problematic requisitioner submissions. Other Procurement Process Instructions and Guidance materials are available resources, such as the Emergency Procurements Protocols and the Small Purchases Delegated Authority Use Form.

  • Processing & Action Repository

    Get the Forms and Templates you need to get the job done. For instance, the RIFANS Change Order Form and Instructions, the Delegated Authority Small Purchase Authorization Form, and the RLC - Request to Retain Legal Counsel.

  • All Curriculums begin with Pre-Requisite PROC 101 | Rhode Island Division of Purchases (


Next Step

If you are a Requisitioner who also manages contracts, and/or prepares RFPs/RFQs/RFIs, or performs the mini-bid process, please proceed to the PROC 301 - Contract Manager and/or PROC 401 - Procurement & Solicitation Professional curriculum(s).

Because each Curriculum is designed to provide all materials that meet the Learning and Actions associated with that specific procurement role, you may see some materials cross over between Curriculums.

When you have completed PROC 201

You have gained knowledge of the business processes in the RIFANS Manual, plus learned that helpful guides, tips, checklists, forms and templates are available.

Return to PROC 201 or visit the Agency Procurement Library to access these resources at any time.


Congratulations and Thank You for completing the PROC 201 Curriculum.
