How did we get here?
  • Evaluated eprocurement technology options and selected SciQuest – 3 schools were already utilizing SciQuest
  • IUC team reviewed suppliers currently using and agreed to negotiate contracts on low bearing fruit first – suppliers being used by all – or used by most.
  • Categories were assigned to specific schools based on relationships and expertise – this enabled the resources to be focused on the area they were knowledgeable on for contract negotiation.
  • Governance Model established
