eProcurement is an online requisitioning system through which staff can requisition goods and services from third party suppliers.  The system allows staff to raise and/or approve requisitions and keep track of those requisitions through the Workflow Enquiry and Enquiries reporting functionality.  The Paperclip functionality can be used to upload documentation, showing compliance with the University's procurement policy.

Any queries on the Procurement policy, approved suppliers and any framework agreements should be directed to the UCD Procurement & Contracts Office.

eFinancials is a comprehensive suite of fully integrated web-based financial management applications designed to address the University's requirement for providing a highly functional and reliable financial management system.
