Procurement consists of Purchasing, Contract Management, Registration of Supplier (ROS)/Supplier Self-Service (SUS), and Competitive Procurements (RFxs). The Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) module is utilized for these Procurement-related activities and is fully integrated with the Finance modules within MAGIC. All public, active RFxs and associated attachments can be viewed at MS Contract / Procurement Opportunity Search once published in MAGIC, and the advertisement date is reached. Statewide Contracts and EPLs can also be viewed at this link. This link provides the ability to locate specific RFxs and contracts using multiple search criteria.
SRM is also integrated with the Human Capital Management (HCM) module to maintain workflow for procurement approvals. MAGIC offers a Universal Worklist (UWL) tool for managing approval tasks, receiving alerts, and handling notifications. Purchasing approval, dollar approval thresholds are applied to each manager within the agency’s organizational structure where procurement activities occur.
