New Purchasing Portal: EProcurement

We are excited to roll out EProcurement, a new purchasing portal. EProcurement provides a one-stop shop for departments to purchase goods from several EMU strategic suppliers. 

The system is designed for you to purchase from one or more suppliers on a single EProcurement requisition which will require only one approval. This approval will be done in the portal prior to purchase. 

Log into my.emich.edu, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Discover More, and locate the Finance (new pilot) card. Click the bookmark icon to save this card to your my.emich Dashboard. Now click EProcurement and you will be able to access the portal. You will probably be asked to sign-in on your first attempt using your NetID and password and Duo. 

Sign up for an online EProcurement Lab through Bridge. Login to my.emich, find the Human Resources card, and select Employee Training. On the Bridge Learning page, click the Learning Library tab and search for EProcurement. Select the EProcurement Information Session box and a list of upcoming sessions will be shown.

Information for EMU Vendors

Eastern Michigan University continues to monitor the situation related to COVID-19. The campus is operational and should continue to receive services. Many employees are working remotely, so how vendors interact with campus may be modified. We recommend the following:

  • Contact campus representative to schedule any deliveries, trainings, services, etc., or inquire about any changes related to delivery of services.
  • Virtualize any meetings. EMU can provide a meeting link if necessary.
  • Send only electronic paperwork. If a file is too large, contact your campus representative to provide a secure area to upload any files.
  • Follow published guidelines related to hand-washing and sanitization if products and services are being provided on-campus.

We would also request that you provide to your campus contact any information related to what your company is internally implementing. In addition, please send a copy of this information to the Purchasing Department at [email protected].

We appreciate that the situation continues to be of a fluid nature. Thank you for working with us and if you have any questions, please contact Travis Temeyer, Director of Purchasing, at 734.487.1024 and [email protected]

Sam’s Club Cards

EMU has been issued new cards with a new membership number. There is only a limited number of cards available for the entire University, therefore we can no longer issue one card per department. 

The new Club card will be issued per use by appointment only. Departments may request the use of a Sam's Club card by contacting the Purchasing Department at [email protected]. Please allow at least a 24-hour notice prior to pick up. Once you have obtained the use of the card it must be returned to the Purchasing Department within 48 hours. 

The EMU issued Sam's Club card can only be used with an EMU issued MasterCard, therefore students cannot sign out the Club cards. Please be prepared to show your EMU Mastercard as proof of eligibility when picking up the Club card.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact Travis Temeyer, Director of Purchasing at [email protected]
