UT Market Authorizations
Shoppers and Buyers
All university employees are authorized for UT Market. Users will have one of two roles, shopper or buyer.
All users can browse product catalogs, put items into electronic shopping carts, and assign shopping carts to other users. Users who have the shopper role are limited to these actions.
Users with the buyer role are also authorized to check out carts in UT Market and turn them into electronic requisition documents in FRMS Procurement. To be given the buyer role, users must be on a desk that has Update (U) or Super (S) command authorization for the PBU command in Electronic Office Management (EOM). Users can enroll in Introduction to UT Market for Buyers via UTLearn.
Users must have Update (U) or Super (S) command authorization for the PD2 command in Electronic Office Management (EOM) to enter departmental receipts for UT Market orders. Users must be authorized for PD2 in the same office where the original requisition document was processed. For more information, go to Receiving Help.
If a user has Update (U) or Super (S) command authorization for the PD2 command in EOM and receives the error message, "(NPOC)-There is a pending change order for this PO. You may not enter receiving information until the change order is approved or deleted," the user will need to wait until the pending change order is final approved. Note: If it is critical to get the receipt processed before the change order can be final approved, the departmental buyer can delete the change order so that the receipt can be processed first.
