As of August 1, 2005 a joint effort between the Division of Financial Operations and the Division of Contracts and Purchasing will enable online catalog ordering through the FAMIS Portal from the following vendors:
These vendors can only be used through the FAMIS Portal and are no longer available in Fastrack.
This new functionality of the FAMIS Portal has the following advantages:
- A greatly improved item search capability.
- Provides direct links to the item descriptions and pictures on Manufacturer's websites.
- Reduces the time it takes to create orders through a user-friendly "shopping cart" that allows a single order to encompass items from different vendors.
- Most orders processed through the FAMIS Portal will be electronically sent to vendors daily eliminating paper and resulting in faster deliveries.
A Training Guide has been developed to help guide you through this new process.
