How does a supplier request a change?
If a change is needed on a Purchase Order (PO), it is the supplier’s responsibility to inform the Cargill PO Contact (buyer) of any changes.
What does the updated PO copy look like when a PO change has been performed?
If you work with your buyer to make changes on the PO, you may receive a revised copy of the purchase order from Cargill. There are various ways of indicating the PO changes, depending on the system generating the Purchase Order. They may be one of the below:
The heading will read “Purchase Order Change.” You’ll see that the changes are bold and that any items that have been cancelled are crossed out.
The heading will read “Confirmed” you’ll see that the changes are in orange color and that any items that have been cancelled are crossed out.
The revised copy of the purchase order will be sent from Cargill PO contact (Buyer) with PO copy in PDF format name “PO# Number (RevX)” and indicated Amendment or Cancellation of PO Line Number in the email.
The remarks section of the purchase order will indicate the revisions. The changes will be bold. Any items that have been cancelled will be crossed out.
NOTE: Please use the most current “Purchase Order Change” PO only. Cargill will not be liable to the supplier for any duplicate orders submitted to us in error. The supplier shall be liable for any and all costs, including all return costs to supplier, for deliveries placed in error.
