The Chancellor’s Office has scheduled a webinar training on CSUBUY for Thursday, May 28 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Employees who had Campus Marketplace access are welcomed to participate in the training. This is a supplementary session to the one scheduled for May 29th by SJSU’s Contracts and Procurement Services. If you wish to participate in the CSU’s May 28th session, please register with them at their Webinar Registration.
Earlier this week, we announced in our blog that CSUBUY will replace Campus Marketplace on June 1, 2020. In order to prepare for the transition to the new marketplace, users have until the end of Monday, May 25th to complete and submit their orders in Campus Marketplace. After the 25th, Campus Marketplace will be disabled. Users’ unsubmitted orders in the old marketplace will not be transferred to CSUBUY. Please refer to our announcement for details.
On June 1st, CSUBUY will replace ESM Campus Marketplace as our purchasing platform to apply contract pricing for CSU suppliers.
What will be different?
The CSUBUY platform will look different than current marketplace, but the supplier catalogs and purchasing process will remain the same as before.
What to expect and how to prepare for the transition?
- The last day to place orders in ESM Campus Marketplace is May 25th. At the end of the day, the marketplace will be disabled and users will not be able to place new or to finish orders in that system. Please plan accordingly for ordering supplies during the shutdown. If you have an urgent purchasing request, then email Contracts and Procurement Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
- All current Campus Marketplace users, those with ProCard and Transfer Cart access, will be moved to the new CSUBUY. No action is required by users for this task at this time. We will send an announcement requesting you to activate your account as we get closer to go-live.
- Purchasing history in Campus Marketplace will not be transferred to CSUBUY. If you need a copy of a completed Campus Marketplace order, please contact FinanceConnect for assistance.
- Users will be able to place orders in CSUBUY on June 1st!!
