CSUBUY Marketplace

CSUBUY. A collaborative procure to pay marketplace.

What is CSUBUY?

CSUBUY is the first step in transforming the way the CSU manages the Procure-to-Pay process. This change creates a foundation for future implementation of automated workflow, requisitioning, purchase orders, a​nd AP functionality through integration into CFS and Oracle.

CSUBUY Marketplace

The CSUBUY Marketplace is a collection of supplier catalogs with CSU contracted pricing. The marketplace provides ProCard users discounted pricing and suppliers a trade portal for selling their product through a "Supplier Hosted Catalog."
