Contract or Purchase Order number required for all purchases

All purchases of goods and services by the Alaska Railroad Corporation (ARRC) must be authorized in advance with a contract or purchase order number.

If your company accepts an order for goods or services without a contract, purchase order, or purchasing card number, you may not receive payment form the ARRC. ARRC employees are not authorized to use their employee number or a requisition number as a purchase order number.

All invoices shall reference the ARRC contract or purchase order number in order to be processed.
