Doing Business with the State System

Procurement Shared Services  supports the State System’s universities and the System Office by identifying strategic sourcing opportunities and establishing best-value contracts in partnership with its suppliers. 
SourcePoint is the system the State System uses to streamline its procurement and accounts payable processes. The State System partners with the SAP Business Network (formerly Ariba) to make it easier for suppliers to do business with the universities. Procurement Shared Services manages all procurement transactions including supplier registration, solicitations, automated purchase orders, and invoice processing. Registered suppliers within the SAP Business Network have access to all State System procurement opportunities and is free to join.
