As part of the Project FOCUS Financials initiative, Financial Services has implemented a new, user friendly online procurement system.

The new system allows users to enter purchase order requisitions directly into Colleague.  The system will provide up-to-date balances in accounts and the ability for users to track the status of their purchase order requests during the approval process.  In keeping with the university’s green objectives, it will significantly reduce paper usage.

Upcoming training sessions are scheduled for both campuses; scheduled training dates include:

Fredericton:

  • June 4
  • 9 – 11 a.m.
  • MacLaggan Hall, 53
  • June 24
  • 9 – 11 a.m.
  • Tilley Hall, 102

Saint John:

  • June 5
  • 9 – 11 a.m.
  • Philip W. Oland Hall, G31

To access the new online procurement system, simply go to page two of the Launch Menu of the myUNB portal and click on ‘Purchasing.’ This will take you directly to the new system.

If you are interested in using the system ahead of the training dates, or need a refresher after the training sessions, there are materials available on the Financial Services website that can be accessed online at any time.
