Catalog product

New Ariba catalog for Amazon Business available today

An Ariba catalog for Amazon Business was added today (March 7). Converting Amazon Business to a catalog from the current purchasing card (PCard) model helps streamline the purchasing process and maintain consistency with University purchasing guidelines.

Although the Amazon Business catalog provides access to millions of additional products available only to business customers, it should only be used if a department cannot find the same product in one of the University’s strategic source catalogs. . As a result, items available through strategic origin catalogs are blocked in the Amazon catalog and products requiring special approval are restricted.

All business-related expenses purchased through the Amazon Business Catalog must comply with the Purchasing delegation manual and internal control procedures.

PC cards will no longer be allowed as a method of payment for Amazon Business purchases, and purchase orders will be used instead.

Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is not part of Amazon Business and departments should follow the established process for their domain.

An overview of the new process, including program benefits and user resources, is available on the Procurement Services website.
