eProcurement

eProcurement is an online requisition application within SMU Financials that enable electronic purchase requests and online workflow approvals. It became mandatory for all requisitions with the exception of Grants and Contracts on January 1, 2011. Staff and faculty who submit grant-related purchase requests or requisitions must continue to use the designated Grant and Contract form on the Purchasing website.

eProcurement requires a valid SMU Financials user account, authorized access and training (for requesters). It is a two-step process:

1. To obtain authorized access, the requester’s supervisor of Financial Officer must complete the eProcurement Requester Access online form at help.smu.edu.

2. The requester must then register and complete eProcurement Requester training class. Since we have been conducting eProcurement classes for the last eighteen months virtually all authorized requesters have been taught. However, should you need to receive training, please call the eProcurement Administrator, Windy Epperson, at 214-768-4151, to schedule training for your area.
