About PurchasePATH

PurchasePATH is a web-based ordering system that facilitates departmental purchasing from order creation to completion. The software manages all aspects of purchasing including order submittal, approval, receiving, tracking, and history. It is a multi-user, multi-tiered system that provides flexibility to departments to setup multiple organizational divisions and units, each with their own methods of submitting, tracking, and approving orders.

PurchasePATH is not an interface to UW's purchasing & ordering systems and it is not a direct interface to vendors. The web purchasing system is for internal use in a department.
