Purchasing

When you need to purchase goods, make (UC Berkeley's Supply Chain Management's) BearBuy your first choice; versus using a personal credit card. New to using BearBuy?? Check out SCM;s BearBuy Universal User Guide where you can find information like the various user roles, creating/managing a shopping “cart”, filling out forms, navigating the system, etc. 

Supply Chain Management recently announced that they have implemented these new Fast Track Approval Processes effective April 14, 2019:

Fast Track Purchase Order Approval: 

  • Catalog orders under $5,000 and Non-catalog and Service forms under $1,000 will skip Requisition Creator and Org Node approval steps.
  • To qualify for the above, Shopping Carts must be complete (shipping address, valid chartstring)

Voucher Payment Process changes: 

  • Catalog orders under $5,000 will auto-pay provided that the invoice matches the Purchase Order (PO).

Check out SCM's Fast Track Approval Processes presentation for full details.
