UTMB ResearchMarketplace

Research Marketplace
UTMB has signed an agreement with SciQuest, Inc., a provider of hosted and punchout supplier catalogs focused on research products. Under this relationship we have significantly expanded UTMB's product search and on-line ordering capabilities.

Using the Research Marketplace allows an end-user to access multiple online catalogs, compare products and pricing, and create a single PeopleSoft eProcurement Punch-out requisition for multiple research products from multiple vendors. Utilizing the Research Marketplace punch-out process to purchase these items increases the end user's authority to create eProcurement DEP requisitions up to $5,000 on any single vendor's purchase order.

Items over $5000 listed on the Research Marketplace are for information purposes only (i.e., price and product comparison). To purchase these items, the end-user must create a PeopleSoft eProcurement Special Request (ACQ) requisition.

Current Suppliers include:
NEW!!! Cell Signaling hosted catalog and Qiagen punchout has been added to the SciQuest Research Marketplace.

Also available are:
Applied Biosystems; BD BioSciences; Bio-Rad Labs; Fisher Scientific/Possible Missions; eBioScience; GE Healthcare Bio-Sciences; Invitrogen; New England BioLabs; PerkinElmer Life & Analytical Sciences; Physician Sales & Service; Pierce Biotechnology; Promega; Qiagen; Roche Diagnostics; and VWR.

Questions or comments you have regarding the Research Marketplace should be directed to the Supply Chain Management/Purchasing Help Desk at the on-campus ext. 78000 or via e-mail

Ordering for Pierce Biotechnology via the Research Marketplace
Effective May 24 2010, all Pierce Biotechnology orders placed through the Research Marketplace (SciQuest) will be automatically re-directed to Fisher Scientific/Possible Missions on your PeopleSoft Requisition and PO. This change will not affect the product brand, the product quality, or the delivery time.  You will still receive your order as normal with the benefit of UT Alliance Contract pricing and elimination of added transactional costs. You will continue to receive FREE shipping, FREE ice charges, and FREE Hazardous fees on every Pierce Biotechnology order processed via the SciQuest punchout process.

UTMB has evaluated various furniture items and has standardized on specific furniture products, styles, colors and manufacturers. Herman Miller has been selected as one of our approved manufacturers. Herman Miller products are purchased under our Novation GPO Contract which offers UTMB significant discounts on this product group.

In an effort to provide our client departments with information that will assist them in their furniture selection, UTMB has collaborated with Herman Miller to develop an informational website that will bring pertinent information directly to your desk top with the click of the mouse. The informational site also provides client departments other valuable information regarding furniture purchases and frequently asked questions, including:

  • Specific product information (for example, How to Adjust Your Chair)
  • UTMB Interiors Managers contact information
  • UTMB Acquisitions contact information
  • Herman Miller Sales Representative contact information

Current Order Process...

  • Assigned vendor contacts customer
  • Vendor will supply drawing/quotations which will be reviewed by FOAM and sent to customer
  • Customer will approve drawing/quotations by sending FOAM the FRS number for the purchase

Coming Soon...
Future additions to the informational website will include:

  • The ability for the client department to create a Vendor Service Request for warranty issues
  • The ability for the client department to create a PeopleSoft eProcurement punch-out requisition from an online catalog of approved furniture products provided the order does not require field measurements
