    I am new to this board and somewhat new to AS9100D and have a question that maybe i can get some guidance from someone. We do what we call contract reviews on jobs that usually are big ticket items (>$20,000) We provide a service that is high cost to our customer. So we do contract reviews before we agree to what the customer wants and is willing to pay. But sometimes we get PO's from customers for inventory items that are consumables for our equipment. We have sold these items numerous times, no problem but the item cost is around $1200. We get them enough times that is seems unnecessary to do a review of the PO if it is the same thing. How do you do this without creating some paper pushing exercise for people? Any insight is appreciated.

    Robert, welcome. To be honest, the term "contract review" is old hat and somewhat out of step with commerce today. For many organizations, it's the quoting or proposal phase during which customer requirements are being determined, including pricing, lead times and feasibility. In all reality, doing any kind of in-depth review by the time a PO arrives is waaaaay too late to find issues. The review should be for simple changes since quoting. Does that help?

    OK i understand what you are saying and i agree. But we get PO for items without actually quoting the customer, there is just a price list and they order that quantity/price number when they need it. the first time they ask for these items we will give them quotes but then after that they just order as needed because it is the same items/cost per item. So how to show we review that PO before we fulfill it without doing this in depth look into something as simple as fulfilling this PO? Would a formal order acknowledgement response be a review?

    If that person has actually looked at the PO and the organization can meet the requirements, yes. That's perfectly acceptable.
