To help prepare Approvers to take advantage of the full online shopping experience using WeBuy, you will need to first take the Procurement Overview course, then the Approver course.

Each course will cover online shopping concepts and MPS-specific processes. The courses also feature hands-on exercises where you'll practice until you feel comfortable using WeBuy.

You are required to complete the Approver training before you will be granted system credentials that allow you to access the enhanced SAP/SRM system.

For more information about WeBuy, check out the Procurement Page on the Staff Intranet.
