Improved requisition process in Workday

September 1, 2021

Procurement is excited to share the most recent improvement to the requisition process in Workday.

After thorough analysis of industry standard product codes, Procurement has defined an additional 50,000 SciQuest catalog items to automatically default a spend category on the requisition line. Cost Center Requisitioners will no longer need to search and apply the appropriate spend category for these catalog items in the Workday cart. Instead, the appropriate spend category will automatically appear in Workday, when returning from SciQuest during the checkout process.

For additional information regarding spend categories, please refer to It’s Your Yale - Spend Categories-Definitions. For questions, contact the Finance Support Center at or 203-432-5394.
