The BearTrax procurement module will completely replace Bear e-Buy for all purchase requests. The system will provide University departments with an enhanced self-service e-procurement system, including the ability to pay non-PO invoices (Request for Payments, Check Requests, etc.) using automated approval workflow. It will also enable new payment options, including ACH direct deposit for vendor payments and electronic travel expense reimbursement. New catalog punch-outs, such as Amazon, will allow users to find the best value within the application, while Procurement Services will gain the necessary tools to analyze purchasing activity and report to outside agencies.
