Boise State University is implementing Jaggaer, an online procurement system, for eProcurement, Accounts Payable, and Contract Management. This comprehensive yet easy to learn procurement software is scheduled for roll out in 2023.
Jaggaer is being configured for Boise State University’s business needs and compliance considerations. We are meeting with focus groups of users to thoroughly test Jaggaer’s functionality. We will shift procurement activities to this online procurement process which is similar to an online shopping experience.
The Idaho State Board of Education wishes to be good stewards of public funds by leveraging the collective bargaining power of the four state institutions of higher education. They have requested that we all implement a common eProcurement system that will integrate with our respective ERP systems. Jaggaer is the product selected as the best option.
Jaggaer has several advantages:
- Provides a familiar online shopping system that allows ease of use to campus.
- Allows a dynamic review of requisition status, current workflow status, PO status and invoice status in one online dashboard view.
- Enables requisitions, Purchase Orders (PO), PO invoicing and receipts in a single system. Invoice receipt submission via Smartsheet will be retired once we are “live” in Jaggaer.
- Consolidates spending data for the four Idaho higher education institutions, combines their reporting, and enables visibility for consolidated spend opportunities.
