eProcurement (ePro) is part of LBNL's PeopleSoft/Oracle Financial Management System (FMS) and is used for processing the Lab's purchases.
ePro requisitions are used to request unique goods and services that are not available from eBuy or B2B vendors. Only trained ePro Requisition Preparers can create ePro requisitions. You can fill-in and send an ePro Requisition Worksheet to a Requisition Preparer for processing.
Once an ePro requisition is created, it is submitted to an Authorized Signer for approval. After approval, the requisition is routed to Procurement where it is assigned to a buyer who then issues a purchase order to a vendor for the goods or services.
ePro sends email notifications to requesters regarding the status of their requisitions. You can additionally view requisition/order status on-line in BRS, IRIS, and in ePro's Manage Requisitions screen.
Effective October 11, 2010, there is a new ePro requisition process. Here is a link to significant changes in the new ePro requisition process. Information about online ePro Requisition Preparer training is available on the Procurement Training page.
