What is CSUBUY?

CSUBUY is the first step in transforming the way the CSU manages the Procure-to-Pay process. This change creates a foundation for future implementation of automated workflow, requisitioning, purchase orders, a​nd AP functionality through integration into CFS and Oracle.

Who is affected by the change?

Initially only the current eighteen ESM Marketplace campuses will be moving to the new platform. The remaining six campuses (Fresno, Fullerton, Long Beach, Cal Maritime, Monterey Bay, and Northridge) will then be onboarded within a few months.   

Over the next few years deeper integration into CFS will provide additional functionality to streamline Procurement, Accounts Payable, and Vendor Management. Other stakeholders, including faculty and staff will also see future benefits.

When is CSUBUY going to be available?


The last day to place orders in the ESM Campus Marketplace is May 25.

The go-live date for existing ESM Campus Marketplace users is scheduled for June 1, 2020.
