Campus Marketplace – New User Interface

Campus Marketplace by ESM is updating to a new user interface, which makes for a convenient and intuitive shopping experience that will be familiar to anybody who has navigated a modern best in class e-commerce site. The new user interface for Campus Marketplace will go live on April 2, 2018.

The updated login portal allows users to shop and manage purchases all with a single click from the new dashboard. Recently viewed items, saved selections, preferred suppliers, and favorite products are all now easier to find. Shoppers may now quickly sort for items from pens to sophisticated laboratory equipment and review or filter a variety of options before checking out using enhanced cart functionality.

No action is required by Campus Marketplace users since the implementation will not affect their accounts and any unfinished or pending orders they may have.

New Director of Acquisitions Management

From the AVP of Finance:

I am very pleased to announce that Kathleen Prunty will be joining us as Director of Acquisitions Management on Monday, March 26th. Kathleen has an impressive mix of CSU, and private sector experience. For the past 10 years, Kathleen has led Procurement and Support Services at the Pomona campus. Before joining the CSU, she held logistics, supply chain and sales positions in private industry. Kathleen received a BA in Organizational Studies from Pitzer College and she is a Certified Purchasing Manager.

Kathleen is well known throughout the CSU system. Having served in several officer positions with the Procurement & Support Services Officers Association, she is known as a strong leader and a highly regarded procurement professional. What impresses me most about Kathleen is her commitment to staff development and continuous learning; she regularly teaches courses in purchasing and negotiation for the CSU and the Western Association of College and University Business Officers (WACUBO). Kathleen has an engaging presence and a “bias to action” that will serve SJSU well.

Please join me in giving Kathleen a big Spartan welcome.

New Moving and Relocation Guide

The “Moving Regulations” section of the SJSU Travel Guide has been removed and now exists as a separate, Moving and Relocation Guide.  The guidelines have been updated to include more clearly defined approval requirements with $ amount thresholds. Also, the “Reportable and Taxable Expenses” section has been re-labeled as “Taxability of Moving and Relocation Expense Reimbursements”, and reflects the change in taxability due to the tax reform bill enacted on December 22, 2017, and effective January 1, 2018.
