This message was originally sent via email by Sarah Hadley, CFO, Finance,  on May 1, 2024 to Executive Council Members

We are pleased to announce that as part of our work towards streamlining our procurement processes across campus and improving system user experience, we will be shifting transaction processing away from the current CentreSuite system and instead using Concur.  Concur is our existing expense reimbursement system that most of campus is already familiar with.  This change consolidates the number of systems for campus. Once users are migrated, Concur will be used for the coding, review, and approval of P-Card transactions.

Further to our project announcement on January 12, 2024, the Jaggaer eProcurement implementation project is on track and well under way, with significant progress made across the various modules. Configuration for Contracts and Supplier Management areas are both progressing smoothly, setting the stage for a transformative shift in our Supplier management processes. The Supplier Enablement component of the project kicked off in March, where our initial list of suppliers were contacted to consent to set up integrations with the system, and this marks a crucial milestone in enhancing supplier relations and streamlining operations.

We know that COVID-19 continues to have a significant effect on our students’ University experience. We want students to know that we are doing everything we can to give them the support they need to keep studying towards their degrees.

Recognizing that we have changed some of our student services and that some are not accessible to students studying at a distance from our campuses, leaders from the Waterloo Undergraduate Student Association (WUSA), the Graduate Students Association (GSA) and the University have again reviewed all incidental fees.

Dear colleagues and students, While we continue to grapple with challenges across our society, climate change and its effects on our world continue. The University of Waterloo has not forgotten this. This is why I am happy to announce that Waterloo is now a signatory of the Responsible Investment Charter for Canadian Universities, along with 14 other Canadian universities.
