Are you looking for a one-stop user-friendly shopping experience? Then iBuy is for you!

iBuy combines the use of Internet technology with procurement best practices to streamline the purchasing process. Attend this three hour training session and learn how you can improve your current purchasing processes by utilizing iBuy.

You will learn how to navigate the site, manage shopping carts, and utilize search methods; you will be taken through the shopping experience, the requisition procedure, and the approval process; and you will learn how to recognize preferred suppliers, enter FOAPAL codes, and review requisitions before they are submitted for approval.
