MAP data must be current for proper approval routing in Mountaineer Marketplace

Procurement Contracting and Payment Services (PCPS) is working to address some issues with the routing of approvals on Mountaineer Marketplace purchases, but employees using the system can help. Any WVU faculty or staff member whose role, supervisor or EBO (Expert Business Office) has changed in the past few months should contact their current EBO to ensure their data is correct in Mountaineer Administrative Processes (MAP).

Mountaineer Marketplace relies on MAP to determine who you are and where to route requests for the proper approvals. If your information in MAP is not current, your approval process may be wrong.

The system also generates two kinds of messages: Notifications do not require any action but merely signal someone in your group has submitted an order. Approval messages have the order details. PCPS intends to refine this process so the initial notification will also have more information. In the meantime, however, users may deactivate the initial notifications by modifying their profiles. Supervisors would then receive messages only when it’s time to approve or deny.

Get face-to-face assistance with purchases at an open house 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 26 in room 219 of Armstrong Hall. Staff will be on hand to help you use this new tool, so bring your orders! If you’d like to arrange a training or question/answer session for your unit, please email
