Procurement Policies and Procedures

Use of Oracle iProcurement

Oracle iProcurement is the end-user component of the purchasing module of the University's Integrated Administrative System (IAS) that allows employees to enter requisitions for goods and services on-line. The IAS also has administrative modules that are managed by and support the Business and Finance Office, Human Resources, and Purchasing Department. IT provides technical support of the IAS.

The University maintains a separate website for the IAS system that can be accessed directly at or from links at the Purchasing, ISS, and Human Resources websites. A full manual on the use of Oracle iProcurement is available on-line.

To request access for Oracle iProcurement, complete the iProcurement System Access Form available on the Forms Directory of the Materials Management website. Please use the fax# indicated on the form to send the completed form it to the Director of Materials Management & CPO. Note that authorization to place requisitions and at what spending levels must be approved by the Head of Laboratory or Department.

Individual training on the Oracle iProcurement system may be scheduled with the Purchasing Department. This training is one-on-one and takes approximately one hour to complete. To arrange for this training, call ext. 8201.

When and if upgrades to the IAS system involve significant modification to the Oracle iProcurement process, Purchasing, in collaboration with IT, will schedule and provide additional formal training to address those changes.
