Access to CSUBUY P2P (recommend to use Chrome)

Request Access to CSUBUY P2P: to request access to CSUBUY P2P, follow the instructions in this document.

NOTE:  The supplier search feature in CSUBUY P2P is now available for use by the campus.  Here is what the different supplier statuses mean: Approved - supplier is ready for use; Profile Complete - the supplier registered but needs to be synced into P2P (reach out to Procurement to have them synced); In Progress - supplier has started but not finished the registration; Invited - supplier has not started the registration process.

NOTE:  When requesting a new supplier, let the supplier know that an email will come from with the subject line of "Supplier Invitation for The California State University".

NOTE:  The Kennel Bookstore is now setup and ready for use in P2P and they are registered as Follett Corporation

NOTE: Dell - When placing orders for Dell, you need to submit the order on the P2P - IT Hardware Form if you have a quote and only use the supplier - Dell Financial Services, do not use the supplier Dell, which is the supplier name for the punchout supplier. 

NOTE:  Returned Vouchers:  If you receive an email regarding a returned voucher, please contact Cynthia
Hanks.  She will work with the Support Team to diagnose, edit, and resubmit the voucher back into the workflow.

NOTE: Do not use P2P for employee or student reimbursements - use the Direct Pay form in Forms Portfolio for these reimbursements.  

NOTE (REVISED):  Candidate reimbursements no longer will be in P2P, please utilize the legacy Direct Pay form found in Forms Porfolio.  No formal registration process is required for candidate reimbursements.

NOTE:  To pay for hotels for candidates, utilize the P2P - Goods and Services form, category is Services - Other.  Current hotels registered in P2P are: Holiday Inn Express Clovis, TownePlace Suites Clovis, and Extended Stay.

NOTE:  Once you submit a P2P Form and it is in workflow you are not able to make any updates to the order unless you "withdraw" the order.   You can add documentation to an order that is in workflow by using the "comments" tab and attach the documents with a comment (the "attachments" tab will not work while the order is in workflow)

NOTE: Do not submit invoices as an attachment with any of the P2P Forms (Requisitions), once your PO is issued, you would then email the invoice with the PO number on it to     When using P2P Direct Pay form, you can and should attach the invoice.  When using IRA funds you will need to attach a copy of the invoice to the P2P requisition form (for the ARO office to see) and will also need to email a copy of the invoice with the PO number to the Accounts Payable email address.  Do not get any signatures on the invoices, when the invoices are uploaded in the P2P system by Accounting, the invoice will route to your for electronic review and approval.

NOTE:  If purchasing Hospitality related items from punchout vendors Amazon or Staples, then attach the campus Hospitality Form for ProCard Purchases (even though it is not a ProCard purchase) to your shopping cart using the Attachments Tab and put it as a Internal Attachment.  The Hospitality Form for ProCard Purchases can be found on the Procurement Website here

NOTE: Do not use P2P Amazon for any gift cards.  Amazon gift cards must be purchased through with a ProCard.  These are the only orders that should go through as all other Amazon orders should go through P2P.  You will need the Hospitality Form for ProCard Purchases form to purchase the gift cards (as mentioned in the above note).

NOTE: temporarily for foreign individuals, continue to use the old process.  Have them register via PaymentWorks and submit on a legacy Direct Pay (found in Forms Portfolio)

NOTE:  CSU Fresno Association (Food Services, RSU, SSU, USU, etc.) is not set up in P2P yet, please continue to utilize the legacy Direct Pay form for them until further notice

CSUBUY P2P - Delegation of Authority (DOA)
The DOA's are financial approvals for each departments transactions in CSUBUY P2P.  A P2P transaction will only go to one level of DOA approval based on the dollar amount of the P2P transaction.  There are four levels of DOA in P2P as follows: Level 4 - up to $5,000; Level 3 - $5,001 to $50,000; Level 2 - $50,001 to $100,000; and Level 1 - $100,001 or greater (Level 1 will always be a VP for DOA).  It is recommended to have at least 2 people listed as DOA for Levels 3 and 4, as anyone creating a P2P transaction can not also be the DOA approver for that transaction.  To make any updates to your department's DOA, please click here.

The latest DOA file was uploaded into P2P Production on 12/13/23.  All future DOA updates will be uploaded into CSUBUY P2P every Friday morning.

What is CSUBUY P2P?

Fresno State is one of the seven campuses piloting the implementation of CSUBUY Procure-to-Pay (P2P), the third phase of the CSUBUY program. CSUBUY P2P will provide one streamlined automated approach and system for procurement and payment processes from shopping all the way through receiving and invoicing. It will also reduce the manual touchpoints of our current system and provide a standardized and simplified experience for campus users and outside vendors.
