We are excited to announce that we now have a centralized Amazon Business account to leverage additional cost-savings through business-only pricing and quantity discounts. Amazon Business is a marketplace extension of Amazon.com. We are working on getting the account finalized. In order to gain account access, please submit a requisition for an open purchase order for the 20/21FY (using supplier ID#0000032547). We will notify you once you are set up, so that you can start shopping through the centralized Amazon Business account! Please understand that because this option is now available, we will no longer be approving the use of CalCards to purchase from Amazon.

Is Amazon replacing Office Depot? No, you now have the option to purchase from both vendors.
How does Amazon Invoice? Each user will receive invoices electronically in their account. These invoices will reference the PO#. It is the users responsibility to forward every invoice to Accounts Payable to email@example.com, with the ok to process for payment.
What levels of oversight exist? Each requisition is approved through PeopleSoft as all other requisitions are, the approvers will depend on the account string being used. In addition, as each user places an order through the Amazon Business website, an email will be sent to their direct supervisor for final approval before the order will be submitted to Amazon.
