Procurement involves all processes used to request, order, audit, and pay for goods and services. There are several different methods to secure goods and services. Some methods begin and are completed in the Procurement module. Other methods begin outside the M-Pathways system but are completed in the Procurement module, such as P-Card transactions, reimbursements to staff (including travel expenses), and Service Unit billings.
Procurement expenses for all goods and services purchased and paid for by U-M departments, schools, and colleges are recognized in the General Ledger.
Within ITS, the Procurement module is supported by the Financial Systems Division.
