Purchase Requisitions in Oracle Apps R12

Purchase order module allows creating requisitions to buy or procuring goods from external supplier or from the inventory. In order to fulfill demand you can create pre request and auto create respective purchase order or internal sales order.
Basically, requisitions are of two types:
1)    Internal requisition and
2)    Purchase requisition

Internal Requisitions are created if the Items are to be obtained from one Inventory location to another location within the same organization. Here the source of the requisition would be INVENTORY. There is no approval process for internal requisition.

Purchase Requisitions are created if the goods are obtained from external suppliers. Here the source of the requisition would be SUPPLIERS. The purchase requisitions are sent for approvals.
Purchase Requisition is a formal request intended to procure/buy something that is needed by the organization
