An Ariba catalog for Amazon Business has been 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 the University’s purchasing guidelines.
Though the Amazon Business catalog will provide 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 strategically sourced catalogs. As a result, items available through the strategically sourced catalogs are blocked in the Amazon catalog, and products requiring special approval are restricted.
All business-related expenses procured through the Amazon Business catalog must comply with the Purchasing Delegation Manual and internal control procedures.
PCards no longer will be allowed as a payment method for Amazon Business purchases, and purchase orders will be used instead.
Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is not part of Amazon Business and departments should continue the process established for their area.
An overview of the new process, including program benefits and user resources, is available on the Procurement Services website.
