New Change Order Request Process!

We’ve updated the change order request process! Leveraging our electronic content management system, OnBase by Hyland, we’ve designed a web-based Change Order Request form to replace the current request-by-email change order process.

The change order request form streamlines the process by providing:

  • Auto-populated purchase order information
  • A drop-down list from which to select an authorized approver
  • Built-in approval notification and routing
  • The ability to upload support documents
  • Document retrieval in FTS – everything related to a requisition in one place

Visit the Procurement Pathways webpage to access the new form and the Change Order Request Process Guide; or attend one of our overview sessions as scheduled below:

  • Monday, 10/9/17 from 9:00am to 10:30am in Clark Hall 505
  • Tuesday, 10/10/17 from 9:00am to 10:30am in Clark Hall 505
