Development and deployment of an eProcurement system that will offer an online shopping environment for OSU’s contracted goods and services, while providing simultaneous access to enabled catalogs for searches across multiple suppliers and catalogs. The eProcurement system will cover the entire source to settlement process including: Supplier Information Management, Sourcing and Contract Management, online marketplace, Accounts Payable and Spend and Performance Analysis.

Status Summary: 

In addiiton to working through the Action Items list created at Focus Group I, we are working on Banner integrations with our OSU team, Ellucian, Huron and Jaggaer in preparation for Focus Group II, which is scheduled for mid-May 2017.

Vendor/Supplier enablement efforts are underway, and we have also started outreach efforts for internal suppliers at OSU.  System testing for electronic transmission and supplier connectivity has begun (punchout catalog activity).

Outreach efforts are expanding, in preparation for Focus Group II and project pilot (summer 2017). We continue to reach out to Colleges, Departments and Programs for information gathering meetings and system introduction presentations.  The first full campus listening session is scheduled for April 25, 2017.

Recently Completed: 

Bill to/Ship to address lists have been created and shared with Jaggaer.



What's Next: 

Focus Group II in mid-May, to seek confirmation that the system is nearing production readiness.

Full campus listening session April 25, 2017.
