    System Ambassadors


    With the rollout of Guided BUying, Sourcing & Procurement engaged Requisitioners and Approvers across campus to represent their departments as Guided BUying System Ambassadors. System Ambassadors received additional training and worked with Sourcing & Procurement and Accounts Payable to help identify areas for additional training and communication.


    Please join us in thanking the System Ambassadors for their dedication in helping us bring Guided BUying to the community!
