Ariba requisitioners must complete training certifications before July 1 to maintain ability to purchase

Two training certifications must be completed by all individuals who perform purchasing functions for their department and are assigned the Ariba requisitioner role. The training certifications need to be completed before July 1 in order to maintain purchasing authorization. If an individual is newly requesting the Ariba requisitioner role, they do not have to follow the July 1 deadline.

This training is included in the Purchasing Delegation Authority Certification Program, which was established in 2019 to provide employees who perform purchasing functions with training on policies, the roles of Procurement Services and the importance of ethics and integrity in procurement.

As part of the program, the Ariba requisitioner role will not be provided without confirmation that the individual has completed the required training certifications.

The first certification, Delegation of Authority Certification, provides guidance for requisitioners who have purchasing authority levels up to $9,999 for goods and services. The course is self-guided and includes a link to the Procurement Services delegation manual, a presentation and an assessment.

The second certification, P2P 201 – Creating Requisitions in Ariba, provides instruction on how to properly use Ariba to search for goods and services and a simulation for creating and submitting a requisition. Individuals who have taken the face-to-face version, P2P 200, since November 2019 do not need to complete the online course.

Both certifications are available through the SuccessFactors Learning Module and must be completed annually. Individuals who wish to become a new requisitioner should complete both courses before submitting a role request. Existing requisitioners who fail to meet the requirements before July 1 will have that role removed, as stated in a notification issued in early April.

If individuals who do not perform purchasing functions received the notification, they should contact their business office to submit a request through the Identity Management System (IDM) to remove the Ariba requisitioner role.

A quick reference guide on accessing completed course materials, training history and training confirmation is available. Questions should be directed to the Procurement Services Training department at pstraining@purdue.edu.
