eBuy Functionality Enhancement for Off-Catalog Purchases
eBuy has implemented new functionality for routing eBuy off-catalog requisitions to the Contract Authorization Management System (CAMS).
To ensure that your eBuy off-catalog requisition is routed to the appropriate Category Management Center (CMC) or Purchasing Service Center (PSC) for processing, requisitioners must do the following:
• From the Purchase Method drop down box of an eBuy off-catalog requisition, click Route Req to Supply Mgt. In the After Approval Route Requisition drop down box, click the appropriate CMC/PSC.
• If you do not know the appropriate CMC/PSC, select the last option, "Not Sure." However, by selecting this option, it will not be possible to complete and submit the requisition until the appropriate CMC/PSC has been identified and selected. Call 800-USPS-HELP to obtain the necessary information. The Help Desk for eBuy is available Monday through Friday, from 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Central Time.
If you do not have access to the Intranet, you should continue processing your requisitions as you have been, per your individual office procedures using PS Form 7381, Requisition for Supplies, Services, or Equipment.
