TigerBuy Training Registration

We’ve moved our registration for the two, half-day sessions to the ElevatED platform offered through HR and will ask that individuals register there moving forward. Classes will be offered each month and the next round of training will be in April. In addition to offering the course through HRD, we will also continue to schedule departmental sessions at your request. If this is something you’d like to schedule, please email Matthew Pike, pikemat@auburn.edu with potential dates/times, locations, and number of attendees. We will be happy to cover the material in the same manner as our HRD sessions or cater it to your specific needs.

Transition from eReq & eVV to TigerBuy

After much discussion, we will begin returning requisitions and vendor vouchers within SSB starting July 1, 2023. The expectation will be that all new transactions be moved to TigerBuy on this date. While vendor vouchers will be moved to TigerBuy, the eVV system will still be used for one-time payments, employee reimbursements, student-employee reimbursements, and any other special circumstances. If there are any questions related to requisitions, please contact Matthew Pike, pikemat@auburn.edu, 334-844-3630. Additionally, questions related to vendor vouchers can be directed to Jeff Wooley, jrw0138@auburn.edu, 334-844-3628, or Ginny Yarbrough, yarbrvr@auburn.edu, 334-844-3638.

New Mileage Rate
