Procure to Pay Enhancement Project
The Procure to Pay Project aims to make purchasing and paying for goods and services across the University easy, transparent, and efficient. Updates to the existing process will eliminate paper requisitions and forms, better align purchasing practices with institutional goals, and save the University time and money.
Users will also have the ability to better track purchase orders and payment workflows. The project will create a central repository for contracts and link them to purchase orders from across the University, allowing Purchasing to better analyze University spending and leverage volume to achieve savings with departments and suppliers.
Who will be affected?
All University departments including the Medical Center that procure goods and services through 312 Requisition and Payment Request Forms (F4).
What will change?
The Procure to Pay project will replace 312 Requisitions at the University. Building on the University’s investment in Workday’s cloud-based platform, the University will instead implement the Workday Procurement module, enhanced with user-friendly eMarketplace shopping, for a more efficient and modern buying experience.
Over time, the University will evaluate additional modules to enhance the procure to pay process. Current plans do not include a replacement of the Pathways Materials Management (PMM) system for departments who utilize it to manage inventory; that system and inventory management processes will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future.
