Introduction to Marketplace

 

What is Marketplace?

 

The WUSTL Marketplace is a web-based electronic purchasing requisition program.

Washington University has contracted with SciQuest, the leading provider of electronic procurement solutions for higher education, to develop this program to interface with our financial system.

 

The Marketplace provides:

          a web-based requisitioning tool with access to on-line supplier catalogs and using a "shopping cart" format

          ability to have staff that currently submit paper or email requisitions to create and submit electronic requisitions

          ability to eliminate redundant requisition data entry and reduce errors associated with that manual process

          searchable supplier catalogs providing product details and contract pricing

          order acknowledgement and status via emails

          purchase history information

          ability to create personal "favorites" list for frequently ordered items
