1. [Action Required] Payment Request Form Changes and Impact

The payment request form was recently updated to allow new functionality for our Accounts Payable group. As of 06/03/2017, all supplier invoice numbers and invoice dates populated on the Payment Request Form will auto-populate on the voucher. The Payment Request Form tile on the BearBuy Home/Shop page has been updated to link to the updated form version.

Please be aware that the recent change impacts older payment requests carts, document search, and saved searches.

Copying Carts dated prior to 06/03/17

  • Payment request form carts created prior to June 3rd should not be copied as they are no longer valid.
  • Shoppers should navigate to the payment request form located on the Frequently Used Forms section of the Home/Shop page or the Organizational Forms Shared Folder.
Searching For Payment Request Transactions in BearBuy
  • The form name has not changed. You can search on Form Name (Payment Request) to find all transactions.
    The form type has changed. When performing an advanced Payment Request Form document search or filtering your results,  the Form Type field you would select for payment request forms has changed.
  • If searching for payment request transactions submitted prior to 06/03/17: Select Payment Request Form 
  • If searching for payment request transactions submitted after 06/03/17: Select Check Request
2. New Punchout - GE Healthcare Dharmacon
GE Healthcare Dharmacon has been added and is now available for use as a new punchout catalog. They have products including gene-specific and custom products for Gene Editing, RNAi and Gene Expression. 

Please note that GE Healthcare and GE Healthcare Dharmacon are separate vendors, so be sure to use the proper vendor for your purchase.

3. Reminder: Santa Cruz Biotech Contract Expires June 30, 2017

Please be aware, the Santa Cruz Biotech System-wide contract (UCOP-41) with the University of California expires June 30th, 2017, and will not be renewed at this time.  

There will no longer be a UCOP-sponsored, system-wide Santa Cruz Bio e-catalog.  The Life Science campus team members and the LS COE, agree UC will not renew our contract with Santa Cruz Biotech, based on USDA’s revocation of SCBT’s license for violating the US Animal Welfare Act.

Please use any of the following alternative catalog supplier for your biotech needs.

  1. Fisher Scientific
  2. VWR
  3. Cell Signaling
  4. AbCam
  5. Miltinyi
