Purchase Card Solution

What are we trying to achieve?

The Purchase card review is aimed at assessing the current ANU purchase card system, identify current and future business and user requirements and align those requirements to a solution (technology and business process) that improves the overall process across the ANU.

Deloitte are undertaking the review and will provide a recommended solution. Once a final solution has been approved a project team will be created to implement the agreed solution.  Implementation is expected during the 2nd half of 2016.

How will it improve our services?

The outcome of the Purchase card review will provide the ANU with an agreed set of user and business requirements and a 'short list' of viable solutions that align with the ANU future technology road map.

The focus of the review is to improve efficiency across the Purchase card process, while also incorporating a range of benefits around business rules, automation and true digital integration. The user experience will also be enhanced.

What's involved?

The review team will engage with ANU stakeholders to capture the current process and associated issues while focusing on the future business and user requirements. A further stream of activity will be focusing on the available solutions and aligning the ANU requirements to key features and functionality of solutions in the market. 

If you have any early suggestions, or ideas on improvements, features or issues with the Purchase card process, please send them through to jeremy.hill@anu.edu.au, who will pass them onto the review team.

Key dates

The Purchase card review is to be conducted throughout May and early June. The planned date for the final report is currently 20th June.
