eProcurement Initiative

Overview

OSU is considering an initiative to implement an eProcurement system that would provide an online shopping environment for OSU’s contracted goods and services.  The online shopping environment provides users simultaneous access to enabled catalogs which allows for searches across multiple suppliers and catalogs.  In addition to the online shopping environment or “Marketplace” as it is often described, an eProcurement system can cover the entire source to settlement process including: Supplier Information Management, Sourcing & Contract Management, Marketplace & eProcurement, Accounts Payable and Spend & Performance Analysis.

eProcurement Initiative Survey Results

PaCS conducted a survey in June 2013 to gain feedback from the OSU community about their experience, needs and the impact of an eProcurement system at OSU.  A summary of the survey results can be found at eProcurement Initiative - Survey Results Memo 7.16.13.
