Launch of Mountaineer Marketplace delayed; WVUBuy will remain active for now
The debut of Mountaineer Marketplace, the new e-procurement tool for all University employees, has been delayed until later this summer. The system had been scheduled to replace WVUBuy on June 1. Procurement Contracting and Payment Services will announce the new date when it is determined.
Two public demonstrations of Mountaineer Marketplace are scheduled for this week, Monday, May 23 at 1:30 p.m. in G102 of the Engineering Sciences Building and Tuesday, May 24 at 10 a.m. in the Greenbrier Room at the Mountainlair. No registration is needed; just show up.
Anyone who has shopped Amazon or another online vendor will be familiar with how to fill a shopping cart and check out using Mountaineer Marketplace. Shoppers can search for items by name or by selecting the specific vendor’s catalog. Products include stationery and business cards, which are accessible through catalogs on the home shopping screen.
Mountaineer Marketplace does NOT require a PCard or any post-transaction paperwork. Because the system is integrated with MAP, it knows who you are and will automatically route your request for the proper approvals.
