BearBuy Best Practices


BearBuy best practices in Berkeley Law

We avoid using personal funds to make purchases for reimbursement or services.  We use BearBuy to proactively manage our purchasing activity.

We avoid making unauthorized purchases – this is defined as buying goods and services from vendors before a BearBuy Purchase Order has been created and authorized.

We use separate shopping carts for items purchased via each catalog type – hosted, punch-out, and non-catalogs.  Cart contents may include items from a variety of vendors selected from the same catalog type.

We use separate shopping carts for each type of BearBuy form – one form to a cart.

We use shopping cart names to allow Shoppers, Cart Authorizers, and others to easily identify and retrieve our carts in BearBuy.

We use the shopping cart Comments field to share information about our purchase and to record the chartstring. Please be sure to tag your Business Services department rep. or RSS requisition creator in the comments before submitting if requiring assistance.
