Training Information for Penn Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff are required to utilize the University's authorized buying methods for all purchases of equipment, supplies and services from external suppliers. Purchasing related training sessions are facilitated by the University's Financial Training department which provides members of the University community with programs focused on the University's financial processes, procure-to-pay procedures, and authorized purchasing tools. On-going customer support resources are available to all BEN Buys users and Purchasing Card cardholders after training is completed.

BEN Buys purchasing system access will not be granted and a MasterCard purchasing card will not be issued to a faculty or staff member until training has been successfully completed and all appropriated forms have been completed and submitted to the appropriate organization.
