Departmental Roles in the BearBuy System
Purchase Request
Role Shoppers Description *Shoppers enter purchase requests via a Shopping Cart into BearBuy. The Cart becomes the Requisition. *BearBuy can be used for departmental bluCard purchase requests. Verification and reconciliation will continue to be performed in BFS as it is today. Characteristics *Shoppers must have a UCB employee ID, Affiliate ID, or be a registered Graduate Student. *Using BearBuy for departmental bluCard purchase requests leverages the requisition workflow.

Purchase Authorization (optional, based on Department business process)
Role Cart Authorizer Description Shopping Carts can be routed to multiple Shoppers. When a shopping cart is routed to another Shopper (e.g. a programmatic manager) for authorization prior to the creation of the requisition, this Shopper is referred to as the Cart Authorizer. Characteristics *Can make changes to the cart *Routing to a Shopper as Cart Authorizer is on an ad hoc basis. *Cart Authorizers will not see any changes made to the requisition. *May see the transaction multiple times if they are also a Requisition Authorizer. *Cannot make changes to the requisition *Routing to an Additional Authorizer is assigned on an ad hoc basis. *The available Additional Authorizers is different than Additional Approvers in ePro and cannot be assigned the role in SARA. *Cannot make changes to requisition. *Use of this authorization step is determined before the purchase. *Will route every requisition that uses a ChartField 1 & 2 value that has an Authorizer assigned. *ChartField 1 & 2 Authorizers is set up in BFS.

Additional Authorizer

Requisitions can be routed to Additional Authorizers (up to 2) on an ad hoc basis. The available Additional Authorizers are Principal Investigators and those who have the role of Requisition Approver. Requisitions can be routed to Authorizers assigned to ChartField 1 & 2 chartstring attributes in BFS. Unlike the Additional Authorizer, the ChartField 1 & 2 Authorizers will be systematically invoked if it is “opted in” by assigning an Authorizer.

PO Change Orders in BearBuy

You will need to create a change order for the below types of requests: • • • • • • Changing Chartfields Decreasing quantity or amount Increasing the amount on a service order Lien closures Canceling a PO line Canceling a Purchase Order

The recommended best practice to obtain additional goods is to place a new order. Please note that change orders will no longer be performed as a mechanism to clear up a match exception. Match exceptions will be manually cleared and approved by the departments.
