Accounting made simple

Corporate Accounting and Supply Chain Management have partnered to deliver automated accounting in the eMarketplace, making it easier for UPMC employees to shop. The eMarketplace is accessible only through My HUB in the eProcurement portal. Follow the tips below to help make managing your budget simpler.

The eMarketplace — think simple
Every item you order in the eMarketplace has a predetermined general ledger account number that was preapproved by Corporate Accounting and Supply Chain Management. As an eMarketplace shopper, you should not change the account number of any item ordered in the eMarketplace. Budget limitations should not affect where an item will be charged or accounted.

Special requests — CAT codes are key
Accounts are automatically assigned to your special request line items based upon selection of an appropriate category (CAT) code. Selection of the appropriate CAT code also ensures that your order routes to the correct approver and routes to the appropriate Supply Chain Management specialist for timely order placement.

Feel the need to change the account code?
Did you select the correct CAT Code for the item that you are requesting? If you need to review the CAT code descriptions, use the search menu within eProcurement to find the most appropriate CAT Code for your request.
