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 part of the project, we will be transitioning from PaymentWorks to HuskyBuy Supplier Portal. We have a temporary transitional procedure for supplier adds and edits. This temporary procedure will run from Friday, May 4th through Monday, July 2nd.
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.

If you determine it is critical for your business needs to create FY19 purchase requisitions in KFS, please follow these instructions.
