Release (Waiver) Process Instructions

Intent: The intent of this updated process is to provide MVE customers with purchase release review and/or approval within a practical time frame.

Certificate of Release: Requests for purchase releases should be submitted prior to purchase from an outside source.

Note: A fillable PDF version of the Certificate of Release must be requested from MVE. This will allow you to add data to the form.

Click here for the posted version that is a PDF file, which can be viewed and printed or emailed to leon.imler@doc.mo.gov.

No prior approval: If a SAMII document is entered that requires MVE Resource Manager approval and a waiver has not been requested in advance, MVE will review the specifications for the commodity code line(s) on the Requisition Text (RXTX) table for an NR or RXQ document or the Purchasing Text (PTEX) table for a PDQ or PGQ document to make a determination. This process will take longer than if the release is received prior to processing the SAMII document.

Prior Approval: Put the Certificate of Release number in the Comment field of the procurement document (NR, RXQ, PDQ or PGQ).

Note:  Of the six types of SAMII purchase order documents, only the PDQ or the PGQ documents may be utilized when Resource Manager approval is required.
