Anyone with a UCSF MyAccess account can log into BearBuy and place items into a shopping cart. However, only Requesters can submit orders. Requesters are responsible for completing the checkout process on behalf of other users, including entering the Accounting Codes and double-checking order details, such as the Shipping Address.

  • Most purchases < $500 will not route for further approval. Therefore, the Requester must have a solid understanding of accounting/funding sources.
  • Note: When a shopping cart is going through checkout or approvals, it may be referred to as a "requisition". Once the requisition is fully approved, the purchase order (PO) will be generated.

These training materials explain how to complete the checkout process and submit orders. For detailed instructions on how to shop and create carts, review the Shopper training.
