The Office of Procurement Services is pleased to announce the launch of LSU GeauxShop, the university’s new electronic procurement system. Phase 1 of the new system will launch Monday, July 22, to allow for purchases through online catalogs from the most commonly used suppliers. LSU GeauxShop categorizes users into five main end-user roles: shopper, requester, approver, invoice approver and PI approver. Since the shopper role access will automatically be granted to all full-time faculty and staff, departments will only have to identify faculty and staff who will serve in the requester, approver, invoice approver and PI approver roles. For more information on the responsibilities of these roles, visit the LSU GeauxShop website. To request access to LSU GeauxShop using the Security Access Request Procedure, please click here for more information. The system ID for LSU GeauxShop is GSP. Training on LSU GeauxShop will begin July 1 and is role specific. Shopper training is optional and will not require registration. Requester and approver trainings are mandatory and will require registration through the HRM Training Programs Application in MyLSU. Seating per class will be limited to 20 persons so it is important to register as soon as possible. To view the training schedule, visit the LSU GeauxShop website. All questions regarding LSU GeauxShop should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
