An Update on Ordering
Effective February 1, 2023, all purchases of goods and services made by the entire Texas Children's Organization will require a valid Purchase Order or Purchase Order Number before the purchase is authorized. A valid Texas Children’s Purchase Order Number is a 10-digit number that begins with a P-. Example: (P-##########). All invoices sent to Texas Children’s will require a valid Purchase Order Number to be referenced on the invoice and the name of the Texas Children’s employee who requested the goods or services.
Please do not accept any orders, regardless of the method submitted to you, or perform any services for Texas Children’s prior to obtaining a valid Purchase Order or Purchase Order Number. In addition, do not allow any orders for additional goods or services that are not included on the Purchase Order provided to you. Failure to adhere to this policy, at a minimum, will cause significant delay in payment and depending on the circumstances, may result in the return of product and denial of payment.

Green Security Registration
Texas Children’s Hospital has implemented a vendor program that includes a series of strict policies aimed at better managing the rising complexity of regulatory compliance issues. The policies were developed with patient safety in mind and will enforce protocols for a more professional and consistent relationship with vendors.
All active vendors that are required to be onsite must register in order to continue doing business with Texas Children’s Hospital. There is an annual fee for vendor registration which is per representative that is required to be onsite. The actual fee is determined by the hospital based on the vendor’s risk profile. We expect all vendors who interact with us to register and provide his/her representative details.
