SmartCART - Total Supplier Manager
In late May Procurement will be going live with a new tool to allow for electronic supplier records. TSM (Total Supplier Management) will be housed in SmartCART and allow end users to send an e-mail invitation to potential suppliers, allowing them to electronically register with the University. This will eliminate the need for paper Supplier Information Forms, and wet signatures on W-9's. All information will be housed electronically. This functionality will roll out to all end users on campus in June, and training is forthcoming.

CWRU’s Office of Procurement was honored as a SciQuest “Product Visionary” Partner at their annual conference in Orlando, FL on Feb. 24-26, 2014 for implementation of Contract Director, Total Supplier Manager, and Sourcing Manager modules. The Education Advisory Board showcased CWRU’s Office of Procurement strategic sourcing successes and campus partnerships at its Eastern Regional Conference in Charleston, SC on April 15, 2014.
The Office of Procurement is pleased to announce:
- Equipment Maintenance Support Services was competed and may be sourced via CWRU’s Scientific Instrument Repair Center (SIRC), The Remi Group LLC, or Specialty Underwriters effective July 1, 2014. Sourcing equipment maintenance rather than paying a fixed “insurance” payment will provide significant (25-30%) cost savings for the same OEM parts, technicians, and service level. For a free price estimate, please contact: The Remi Group’s Cindy Kaczanowski, email@example.com, or Specialty Underwriter’s Matt Roncone, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
- The Vendor Contact List has been updated on its redesigned website.

AP going Paperless
As of March 10, 2014 the AP department will be processing and filing invoices electronically! We ask for your corporation in making this a successful transition. Please send only invoices to Invoicesfirstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries regarding payment status or other related issues can be sent to email@example.com. Also, make sure that the invoice you are submitting has a purchase order number on the invoice. The purchase order number may be hand written, but must be legible. Please make sure that any special instructions such as hold for pick-up, are written on invoice. Please, no highlighting on invoices. Following these directions will ensure timely processing and correct delivery of payment.
Continue to read our newsletter and visit our website for the additional enhancements and updates going from paper to paperless in AP.
The AP department wishes to thank Rich Cowie, Hyland Software, Liju Jacob our project leader, ITS, the AP Staff, Purchasing, Customer Care Team and most of all Senior Management for supporting us in this vision.
