As the calendar year closes, the Purchasing Department requires any procurement needs* requiring a purchase order by December 31st to be submitted in UShop by December 13, 2019. Please note this does not pertain to punch-out orders and requests under $5,000.00.
Please contact the Purchasing Department at x1-7241 with any questions. Thank you!
(*Excludes processes requiring 30+ days for completion, including requests for proposals (RFPs) and multi-stage bid processes.)
The Purchasing Department is offering a new procurement training opportunity focusing on the Multi-Stage Bid and Request for Proposals (RFP) processes. This training will help department employees prepare and better understand these two common processes for procurements when criteria other than just price are important for consideration.
These training sessions will last for one hour and will be held in the Purchasing office every other month, with the first session on September 17th at 10:00 am.
Please share this information with others in your department that may be interested. Sign up via the Purchasing home page through the icon titled: Procurement Training Opportunities or from the link below.
2. Add an individual as an Ad-Hoc approver to requisition workflow
This feature allows you to add an individual, in addition to GFA approval, to the requisition workflow. Once this individual is assigned as an Ad-Hoc approver, their approval is required. This can provide an increased level of internal controls to any order you choose.
Please join the Purchasing Department for a session discussing several topics such as:
Utah Procurement Code and Review
UShop eProcurement System
Contract Management and TCM highlights
Conflict of Interest
Year-end Procurement Processes
Electronic Payment Requests (ePR) in the context of Procurement
The dates and locations for the four sessions are as follows:
Tuesday, April 16th 9:00 – 10:30 HSEB room 1730
Thursday, April 18th 9:00 – 10:30 S.J. Quinney Law Moot Courtroom 6200
Tuesday, May 7th 9:00 – 10:30 S.J. Quinney Law Moot Courtroom 6200
Tuesday, May 21st 9:00 – 10:30 HSEB room 1750

Hospital employees may have UShop access for University (internal) departmental purchases such as the Print Shop, Bookstore, Nutrition Care and Guest Housing. Please email Karri Almond for UShop registration as the UShop link may not work for Hospital employees.
