Welcome to TAMUK Procurement Training

The Procurement Services Department offers a variety of training classes, guides, and workshops that are very informative and provide hands-on tools to assist you in the performance of your mission. We encourage faculty and staff to attend these trainings to receive updated guidelines, new regulations, and answers to all those troubling questions.

Purchasing Workshop

Procurement now has an annual purchasing 101 workshop that covers the basic understanding of TAMUK purchasing along with Javelinabuy navigation and contract management training. 

The workshop will benefit those who are involved in the procurement/sourcing process and who perform activities that are part of the purchasing/sourcing process. In particular, this session will benefit people who are new to procurement or who may require a ‘refresher’. This will be an on-site event as well as a live stream.

JavelinaBuy is a web-based e-Commerce system developed by Texas A&M University, in partnership with SciQuest, which replaces the purchasing functionality previously provided by FAMIS and the Buy A&M (BAM) system. JavelinaBuy handles the procurement of all commodities and services. Customers may browse and shop from numerous online catalogs, each of which is accessible directly through the JavelinaBuy. Invoices and payment requests are initiated and created within JavelinaBuy, which is fully integrated with FAMIS. Also, a great feature is that both formal and informal bidding can be achieved utilizing JavelinaBuy while allowing suppliers’ to create a profile through the Texas A&M “AggieBid” Supplier Portal. 

Setting Up A Vendor

What are the benefits of JavelinaBuy:

  • It provides a one-stop shopping experience with virtually all suppliers - no need to remember multiple web sites or set up individual accounts and profiles with individual suppliers.
  • Similar to other online shopping sites, products may be searched by keyword, part number, category, or "favorites" lists.
  • Real cost savings – Texas A&M’s contracts and “best value” sources are readily accessible.
  • Quicker turnaround since there are no delegated dollar limits on orders placed with contracted suppliers.
  • Requisitions are automatically budget-checked and routed through a departments’ specified Approval Workflow.
  • Invoicing is centralized and automated, which minimizes or eliminates paper invoice processing and Payment Card receipts and reconciliation reports.
  • Provides greater spend visibility, reporting, and analysis.
