Drop-In Support

Our Purchasing and Strategic Contracting staff offer drop-in support on Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. in our offices at Wannalancit Business Center, Suite 415 at 600 Suffolk Street. During a drop-in session you are encouraged to bring in requisitions that you would like to enter, and the staff will walk you through the process step-by-step. Kindly email us in advance of your visit so we may be prepared for your arrival.

Comprehensive Training

Our staff also offers introductory training once per month. These sessions will cover an overview of the UMass BuyWays system, roles, profile set-up and maintenance, shopping cart creation (catalog and non-catalog), shopping cart assignment, requisitioning, change orders, contracts, and approving.
