RAM - Requisition Approval Manager

What is RAM?

 RAM (Requisition Approval Manager) allows your district to apply electronic workflows to USAS requisitions, filling that paper gap between creation of requisitions and creation of purchase orders. LACA offers this service in conjunction with your district's ITC, so any school district in Ohio that utilizes USAS for accounting can utilize RAM for requisition workflows.

A full list of participating ITCs and districts is listed to the right. If your ITC is listed as a participating ITC that is offering RAM to their members, please contact them if you are interested in RAM.

You may also contact [email protected] if it does not appear your ITC is currently offering RAM.
