NUQuickPay Live in April
PPS, Financial Operations, and IT are excited to announce that Northwestern is implementing an electronic payment option for individuals. NUQuickPay will be live on Friday, April 7, 2023.
Office Depot (ODP) Updates - Northwestern Logo and Copy Paper
ODP Business Solutions (formerly Office Depot OfficeMax) will no longer offer items containing Northwestern’s logo. While supplies last, these items are available in iBuyNU. OPD has also informed Northwestern of current widespread unavailability of recycled paper due to a recent fire at a paper mill that produces recycled paper products. An alternate paper product is in-stock. Learn more about these products.
Fluid Requisitions Live - Classic Unavailable This Summer
PPS and Northwestern IT hosted two webinar training courses in January to review Fluid Requisition functionality in NUFinancials. Currently both fluid and classic views are available in NUFinancials; however, the classic view will be unavailable as of June 12.
Procurement Process and Policy Reminders
We wanted to share a short list of policy reminders for when departments or schools need to purchase an item or service.
Iron Mountain Document Management
Northwestern is working on implementing a central billing process for the Iron Mountain shredding service. There is no immediate change but we may need your help to have a chartstring and contact person for each department using Iron Mountain. This stems from a recent disruption in shredding services from Iron Mountain due to many past due invoices from various departments and schools across campus. PPS worked closely with Iron Mountain to restore services and with those departments and schools to get their invoices paid to eliminate the risk of this issue happening again.
University Express Package Delivery Programs - FedEx and UPS
PPS manages the relationship with two of the largest package delivery companies, FedEx and UPS. Departments and schools can request access to a portal for FedEx and UPS that will allow you to request shipping services that will be billed directly through a central bill process.
