How can my department sign up to use the Online Purchasing System (OPS)?

Any College of Engineering department may sign up to use OPS if it meets the following criteria:

  • The department is large enough to have its own department ID
  • The department ID is in the College of Engineering department group
  • The department has a purchasing workflow that is independent of other departments

To request that your department be added to OPS, or to receive a demonstration of OPS features, send a message to ops-support@umich.edu. CAEN staff will work with you to set up a time to meet with you and your purchasing team. Allow at least two weeks for CAEN to complete the setup.
