Attention UChicago BuySite Users!
On Saturday, October 21st the URL address of the BuySite login website will be changing in order to migrate to the university’s single sign-on functionality to further enhance network security and protect our information.
What does this mean for you?
We want to alert you to an active email scam involving purchase orders and request for product quotations that purport to originate from The University of Chicago but are in fact fraudulent. While The University cannot prevent this illegal activity, we are actively working with law enforcement to investigate these fraudulent email contacts.
We can share some common traits or themes of these fraudulent emails that may help reduce risk to your company in becoming a financial victim of this scam:
BuySite Email Approval gives approvers the ability to take action on documents via a computer or mobile device without having to directly access the application. Additionally, improved email notification for documents pending approval gives approvers the ability to see more detailed order information.
To activate the enhancements, first visit the Email Preferences section of your BuySite user profile (via User Settings) and select the "PR pending Workflow approval" permission under 'Shopping, Carts & Requisitions' to receive the email notification portion.
