iProcurement Access

In order to be granted system access, the iProcurement Access Form should be completed and signed by your PI or Manager, then emailed to Procurementhelp@seas.harvard.edu.

Placing orders using iProcurement

Whenever possible, requisitions should always be submitted before the item or service order is placed.  This is known as a pre-commitment requisition.  This allows for review and pre-approval of your request before the funds are committed to the vendor. It also allows the invoice to be paid electronically via Central Administration.

Vacation Rule/Granting work-list access:

It is good practice to assign work-list access to a colleague prior to beginning vacation or extended absences from the office. Please read the instructions on granting access to your iProcurement queue.

Important: Please note that the requisition approved by someone accessing your work-list, will still show your name as the approver. You will be responsible for any requisitions approved within your work-list. This is an emergency-only procedure and is not to be used instead of the Vacation Rule.
