***NEW PROCUREMENT EMAIL NOTIFICATION***
Hello! We are pleased to announce an early release of the Procurement process improvement team (SUPER). As of this morning, employees who enter requisitions in Banner will receive automatic notifications when the requisition is assigned to a buyer, when the Purchase Order is completed, and when an invoice is applied to the PO. Details are provided below.
Campus-wide feedback consistently identified a need for greater transparency and communication within the procurement process. For both departments and the central procurement office, phone calls to determine the status of a requisition took considerable time and caused frustration. To address these issues, the SUPER team explored and developed solutions, gathered feedback, and worked with Accounts Payable, UAA, UAS, and Statewide Banner Finance to implement automatic status notifications for the Banner procurement process.
A few things to note:
