In the Employee services portal, you can use the Order products page to find and order items and services that you use to perform your daily work activities. You can perform the following tasks on the Order products page:

  • View the procurement catalog that is available for the legal entity and operating unit that you are assigned to.

  • Search the procurement catalog for items and services by category or keyword.

  • View details about a selected item or service and add it to your shopping cart.

  • Create an order, by category or vendor, for items that are not in a catalog.

  • Access the vendor’s catalog, if your organization allows you to order products directly from the vendor.

  • Verify the contents of your shopping cart, check out, and create and submit a purchase requisition for the items and services that you selected.

  • View open and completed orders.

  • Confirm orders that you have received.


Before you can view the procurement catalog on the Order products page, your policy administrator must set up the purchasing policies for the legal entity and operating unit that you are assigned to.
