11/18/13 - Information Technology (IT) review - All hardware, software, applications, leases and services are subject to an Information Technology (IT) review to ensure compliance with federal, state and university policies.  In order to satisfy the UMass Board of Trustees audit requirement relating to the IT Procurement Review policy, we are instituting an “Information Technology Acquisition & Lease Review Checklist” along with 2 new commodity codes.  All IT purchases must have this form attached to the requisition and will be reviewed on a post audit basis.  The Explanation Document should be reviewed carefully.  We will begin the staggered rollout of this requirement in BuyWays beginning Monday, November 18, 2013 with non-academic departments.  If there are any questions please contact Patty Roper at 577-3045 or

11/14/13 - Home Depot Returns - If you have made a purchase with Home Depot in BuyWays, do not return the item to the store.  Users should call Customer Service at 800-292-4208, advise PO# and item(s) they are returning.  Home Depot will arrange for pickup.  The item(s) will be credited back to the Purchase Order.  Home Depot does support electronic credits for catalog orders.   It is important that users follow this return procedure, or the credits will not be applied back to their Purchase order.
