In June, we launched the pilot release of the Fermilab eMarketplace, a web-based shopping network where authorized employees can order off-the-shelf items commonly used at the laboratory.
The pilot release included the Finance Section, Technical Division and Computing. For the remainder of the laboratory, we are now beginning a rolling launch by lab organization. Our goal is to have all organizations using the eMarketplace by early fall.
Individuals authorized to use the eMarketplace have been or soon will be identified by the laboratory’s senior leaders. These individuals will receive email notifications to sign up for training prior to the release associated with their organizations. User training must be completed before using the eMarketplace.
Learn more about the eMarketplace at the eMarketplace website, http://emarketplace.fnal.gov. (Note that the site can be accessed on site or via VPN.)
Cindy Conger is the Fermilab chief financial officer.
