What is PeopleSoft eProcurement?

eProcurement is an innovative program designed to provide a streamlined electronic tool for use by University employees to create requests for purchases. There are different types of requisitions that UM Healthcare users can create in the PeopleSoft eProcurement module.

  • Item Master is UM Healthcare’s internal catalog of inventory and frequently ordered products and supplies. The majority of the items are ordered on a regular basis, some with quantities stocked in our hospital facilities for same and/or next day delivery to departments, and are provided by contracted suppliers. Item Master includes but is not limited to medical surgical supplies, consignment products, consumables, etc.

  • Show-Me Shop is the University’s “virtual marketplace” comprised of a wide range of products from which to compare and choose. The virtual marketplace affords end users a "one-stop" shopping experience for items from contracted suppliers the entire University System as a whole does business with on a consistent basis. UM Healthcare end users mainly use Show-Me Shop for their office supply needs and maintenance repair operations (MRO) products.

  • Non-Catalog requisitions are created for items that are not contained in the Item Master or Show-Me Shop. Capital requests are consider non-catalog requests. Non-catalog requests involve the review of Sourcing and Supply Chain staff.
