Welcome to CSUBUY Procure-to-Pay

What is CSUBUY?

CSUBUY is a streamlined automated platform that gives Cal Poly employees a straightforward way to purchase goods and services and covers every step from requisition to payment. Faculty and staff can sign on for access to a CSU-wide marketplace that features all the essentials for everyday activities as well as specialized equipment. Following the placement of an order the request will go directly to the right approver, who can approve from anywhere. This process can be tracked throughout and will be integrated into the Common Financial System (CFS).

CSUBUY will reduce the manual touchpoints of the current system and provide a standardized and simplified experience for campus users and outside vendors.

The Chancellor’s Office was on campus to share information, answer questions and host demos on Feb. 15. The Roadshow demonstrated what the new procure to pay processes and system would look like as well as key functionality.
