Purchasing News

Shoppers will soon see an enhancement to the Shopping Cart ordering process. When a Shopping Cart is processed into a purchase order, the cart creator will now receive an auto-generated email from SRM indicating the order has processed and placed with the supplier. The email will include the correlating PO number, contents of the cart, and account assignment information.

For e-catalog orders, the Shopper will continue to receive an email notification also directly from the supplier in addition to this internally-generated notification.

Purchasing has issued a newsletter for October with information on Voyager Fleet Cards, e-catalogs development, enhancements to Shopping Carts, web development contractors, and more. Previous newsletters continue to be available below:

New e-catalogs are currently in development for use with SRM Shopping. When loaded to the Add Item menu, Shoppers will be able to make all purchases from B & H Photo, Herman Miller Furniture, Roche Diagnostics, Bio-Rad, and Qiagen using Shopping Carts. The e-catalogs are scheduled for completion in early 2017. Once the e-catalogs are loaded, all purchases for the above suppliers will be via SRM Shopping Carts and restricted from procurement card. Updates will be made available via Purchasing home page and LISTSERV news.

To enroll to the Purchasing listserv and receive procurement-related news and updates, send e-mail to LISTSERV@lsv.uky.edu with the following text in the message body. The subject line should be blank as well as the rest of the body of the email.
