eProcurement Training for Campus

Step 1: Obtaining eProcurement Access as a Campus/System User

Department users are granted access through the PeopleSoft Access Request System (PARS) which is part of the Security module within PeopleSoft. 

The Department’s Fiscal Officer should contact their appropriate Accounting office (see below).  Accounting will create and submit the PARS for the requested access which will route electronically to the PARS Approver based on the requested role.  Once the PARS Approver has approved and the role has been added, the new eProcurement Requester will be notified directly by email.   The access request may be submitted before or after training, although we recommend submitting prior to training so that users have the access needed once training is complete.

To create the PARS for the eProcurement Requester role, provide in the communication:

  • User’s First and Last Name
  • Employee ID
  • Default Values
    • Phone Number
    • Ship To Code (Active List)
    • MoCode
    • PS Account


Step 2:  Training Options and Materials

Procurement provides a variety of training methods and tools for the eProcurement process. These various offerings are available to meet the varied needs, interests, and learning preferences of potential users.

On-Line Tutorials – Available 24/7, these tutorials will walk you through steps of each process. We recommend the “Try It” option which provides step by step instructions as you navigate through the process. You may drill through the entire eProcurement process, or view only the topics needed for review and understanding. You will be prompted for your SSO ID/Password for access to view the tutorials and manuals.

Instructor-Led (ILT) Classes – These are one to two hour long hands-on training sessions led by an instructor.

Written Materials – These are available for each role and can provide additional assistance once you’ve been through the tutorials or attended an instructor-led class. Available are Training Manuals (with complete details and screenshots) as well as Quick Reference Guides (simple list of steps).

Requestor Training Instructor-Led Training is not required
to gain access to eProcurement, and users
may opt to use the on-line tutorials instead.
We would, however, like to encourage those
who can conveniently attend an ILT class to
do so, especially those who will be frequent users.
Approver Training Tutorial-based only.
