The HuskyBuy Evolution project will add new functionality to the purchasing and payment process and is expected to go-live on July 2, 2018. As a result, the HuskyBuy Support Team will convert all open KFS PO’s. It is important to note, as with any conversion, purchase orders may come over with limited data. Now would be a great time to close any of your open PO’s in KFS.
It would be preferable to hold your FY19 purchase requisition entry until July 2nd when our improved HuskyBuy site goes live.
If you determine it is critical for your business needs to create FY19 purchase requisitions in KFS, please follow these instructions.

In anticipation of the opening of the new UConn Bookstore, we are excited to inform you of the new method for University business related walk-up purchases.

Please refer to your PCard User Manual for allowable purchases. Continue reading
We are excited about the new relationship with Barnes and Noble and ability it provides for us to look at our business processes and procedures to improve services to faculty, staff, and students. One of the changes we are making is the relationship with Apple. Rather than purchasing through the UConn Bookstore, the university will purchase directly from Apple. This will simplify the ordering process for the university community.
