CU Marketplace Redesign Coming Fall 2024

The Procurement Service Center (PSC) is excited to announce a significant redesign of CU Marketplace which is set to launch in Fall 2024. Developed in collaboration with campus partners, this redesign will enhance the user experience and streamline procurement processes.

Implemented in 2011, CU Marketplace has seen minimal changes. Over the years, the system has not fully leveraged new functionalities or adopted best practices that could improve the user experience. Currently, users face cumbersome navigation with multiple form types and excessive clicks, leading to confusion, rework, and delays. The redesign addresses these challenges, modernizing the system to meet current needs and regulatory requirements.

Key redesign outcomes:

  • New Requisition Request Form: An intuitive, single-entry point to reduce confusion and rework.
  • New Payment Voucher Form: Built-in policy guidance to minimize delays and errors.
  • Redesigned Landing Page: A user-friendly, visually appealing interface for easier access to forms and processes.
  • Enhanced Commodity Codes: Limits required information based on the type of commodity, simplifying the requisition process.
  • Blanket PO Functionality (BPO) (replaces SPO): Aligns with supplier invoicing methods to improve efficiency and reduce follow-up.

These updates will create a seamless and intuitive buying experience, reduce rework, and enhance flexibility to adapt to regulatory changes. Stay tuned for upcoming webinars and on-campus training sessions! For more information, please visit our new project landing page.
