UT Market Place Debuting New Look, Streamlined Checkout Process

Category: Announcements

Ordering office supplies, computers and even scientific equipment through the UT Market Place will be easier than ever, thanks to a new user interface and streamlined checkout process debuting April 16.

The UT Market Place allows departments to place online orders for business needs from some of UT’s biggest suppliers, including Staples and Fisher, using a single sign-in and shopping cart. The system provides access to UT’s discounted pricing and eliminates the need for bidding on/for items sold through the UT Market Place.

Employees interested in learning more are encouraged to participate in online training sessions offered April 16-25 by the UT System Office of Procurement Services. The 30- to 45-minute presentations provide an overview of the new user interface and checkout process. Registration is available here. Answers to frequently asked questions and updated training materials are available here.

All employees are able to sign in and place needed supplies in a shopping cart, but only those approved to make departmental purchases can complete orders. The UT Market Place is also where employees submit purchasing requisitions.
