Changes to GovConnection with ePortal but not SciQuest

Recently, GovConnection, Yale's strategic supplier for computer peripherals and supplies, directly contacted Yale purchasers regarding upcoming changes to their web site effective March 31, 2007.

This change will not affect the SciQuest application. GovConnection's external catalog ("punchout")in SciQuest will remain the same and SciQuest users should continue to shop for items as they do today.

Yale University Procurement will inform you well in advance if changes occur in the future to the GovConnection external catalog in SciQuest.

Conversely, this change will affect the GovConnection web site via the Yale ePortal. Changes to navigational capabilities are the primary revision.

As a reminder, SciQuest is the recommended approach for University business purchases. The Yale ePortal remains as a convenience in the event that SciQuest is not available to a user as well as for Yale employee purchases with a personal credit card as a mechanism for obtaining the Yale discount for personal purchases.
