    Some dictionaries say "below" can be an adjective, so from that perspective your sentence would be correct.

    But "below" is mostly used as a preposition or an adverb.
    And that sentence would usually be written as 'The purchase requisitions and change orders (listed) below have been received and are being processed.'
