Procurement Announces New Banner Features To Improve Purchasing Process


Monday, July 18, 2022

As part of the “Banner Back to Basics” — an Office of Information Technology initiative that reduces or eliminates the need for modifications by leveraging Banner’s current features and functionality — our Procurement department is introducing changes to the purchasing process that will increase the efficiency of the procurement lifecycle. This initiative is part of Valencia College’s Project TITAN, which included the improvement of our digital architecture for Atlas, Banner and Cloud systems.

The new process includes the ability for requestors to attach supporting documentation directly in the requisition, which eliminates the need for follow-up emails from the Procurement team. In addition, the requestor’s security access now includes the ability to look up supporting documentation, such as purchase orders and invoices.

These changes became available on Monday, July 18, 2022, and training opportunities will be offered for employees to learn the new features and get familiarized with the new process.

Employees who are in charge of processing requisitions should attend one of the following training sessions:

Date: Thursday, July 21, 2022
Time: 10 – 11 a.m. 
Location: Teams

Date: Monday, July 25, 2022
Time: 2 – 3 p.m.
Location: Teams

Date: Wednesday, July 27, 2022
Time: 10 – 11 a.m.
Location: Teams

Date: Friday, July 29, 2022
Time: 9 – 10 a.m.
Location: Teams

No registration is necessary. Session recordings will be available; however, you are strongly recommended to attend a live, Teams session so that you have an opportunity to ask specific questions.

The new process will be required effective Monday, August 1, 2022, and any requisitions submitted that do not include the required documentation will be returned for correction.

If you have questions, contact the Procurement team at valenciaprocurement@valenciacollege.edu.
