BuySite System Alert: Pending requisition approvals required by February 23

BuySite is scheduled to be reconfigured on Monday, February 26, 2018 to implement announced enhancements. These include realigning of approval structure to ensure purchases are approved by an FAS account Authorized Signer and implementation of new digital forms.

Requesters: Please ensure any requisitions you have submitted are approved by Friday, February 23, at 5:00 p.m. Be sure to notify your approver of any pending requisitions to ensure approval is complete before the deadline. Any requisitions not approved by the deadline will be rejected and require resubmission after the enhancements are implemented on Monday, February 26, 2018.

Approvers: Please approve all pending requisitions by Friday, February 23, 5:00 p.m. Any requisitions pending approval in the system after 5:00 p.m. will be rejected and will require resubmission after the enhancements are implemented on Monday, February 26, 2018.
