    MaccaBuy Roles

    •  Requesters and Approvers have to log into MaccaBuy through the  InsideTrack portal.
    •  As a reminder below are the MaccaBuyRoles:

    Shopper – These users can shop for items and assign their shopping cart to Requesters to process, but cannot themselves submit a cart for approvals. This is the most common role in the procurement process, with many shoppers in each School/Department. If you used to shop on SciQuest and assign your cart to someone else for processing and currently had no access to Jacada for procurement then you are a shopper and should attend Shopper training.

    Requisitioner (Requester) – These users can shop for items, change/add GL number(s) on carts assigned to them, and submit carts to approval workflows. Typically, there are several requesters in each School/Department depending on the size of the department. If you used to access Jacada and create requisitions - you should attend Requester training.

    Approver – These users review (approve and reject) purchase requisitions that are assigned to them by the system based on their function (typically, it is the Departmental Administrators and Manager).  Approvers can also shop. There are usually one or two per School/Department and most often this role is performed by the Administrator, Director, or Manager (similar to the “Budget Manager” role in Banner Finance). If you used to go into Jacada and approve requisitions/create POs - you should attend Approver training.

    Requestor/Approver -  This is a new role, created based on feedback from our user community. It is a combination of the Requester and the Approver roles. Caution should be exercised when giving some-one the Approver/Requester authorization, as he/she will be able to approve their own orders (requisitions) up to $5,000, and can also approve orders - under $5,000 - of other Requesters within the Department, Division, or School.
    It is recommended by our auditors, and a good procurement practice in general, that a request for goods and services has two levels of approval, a requisitioner (Requester) and an Approver.  However, in certain cases we understand that this is not entirely possible.  If this is the case in your Department, Division, or School you can request that certain individuals be given the Approver/ Requester role.

    • If  you are unsure of your role in MaccaBuy, you should access the  MaccaBuy site and click on the profile tab (next to your name on the home screen)
    • There are technical issues that are happening now between Inside Track and MaccaBuy, however, if this is your first time logging in and you are a Requestor or an Approver in MaccaBuy, when you get the second  log in screen, you must  enter your YU AD credentials (not Jacada, not SciQuest, not Kronos).
    • If  you have tried that and you still have issues, please contact the help desk at #6123 or helpdesk@yu.edu.
    • If you’re having problems with your index or any GL/FOAP related questions, please contact the help desk at #6123 or helpdesk@yu.edu.
    • MaccaBuy includes dynamic workflow that moves the requisition through the system based and roles and security.  If you’re a Requestor you should utilize the workflow by  not assigning the cart to your approver. You have to click “Submit to Workflow”. Your approver will not be able to process your request if it is not in Workflow. Although the system allows you to put multiple vendors on one requisition, do not put multiple vendors on a Freezer Program order.
    • Invoices that were received after the 12/21 deadline or those that remained on your last referral report have to be re-entered into MaccaBuy using the Request for Payment Form located in the Showcase Form section in MaccaBuy. This does not apply to invoices paid against blanket orders. Blanket orders will be converted into MaccaBuy, by mid-January.

    When to Use This Form: 

    • To purchase goods and services not found in a SciQuest catalog, from contracted and other suppliers.

    • This form should also be used for contracted services, independent contractors/consultants, service and repair contracts, and any other orders that have contracts associated with them. Please be sure to attach all necessary documentation to this form in order to avoid delaying your request.
