Each user in buyND is assigned a Role which determines his or her ability to submit and approve purchase requisitions. The three individual roles in buyND are:

  1. Requestor: an individual who initiates the electronic purchase of goods and services by shopping and creating a cart. After placing items in the shopping cart, the Requestor checks out. After check-out is complete, a Purchase Requisition (PR) is created. 
  2. Approver: an individual designated to electronically review/edit and approve purchase requisitions. After review, the Approver may approve or reject part/all of the PR. Approval of the PR creates a Purchase Order (PO) that is delivered to the vendor. 
  3. Shopper: an individual who can browse the hosted and punchout catalogs from several suppliers, however, they do not have the authority to submit requisitions in buyND.

Each role has associated dollar threshholds. To understand what role you will have in buyND, please contact your department's Workflow Coordinator.
