buyBAMA transforms the way goods and services are purchased at The University of Alabama, by providing campus employees with an electronic procurement system that is easy to navigate and intuitive to use, resulting in an easier and faster procurement process. It is the single point of entry where faculty and staff at The University of Alabama can go to shop for most of their campus-related purchases. buyBAMA saves money by using negotiated discounted prices from The University of Alabama. It is able to keep track of what you purchase and how much you spend on these purchases, improving our ability to negotiate volume discounts.

Here are a few features of the system:

  • Users may shop from multiple contract vendors from a single sign on.
  • Requests for P-Card single purchase limit increases for purchases from the hosted vendors are automated.
  • The process of entering requisitions is simplified and streamlined.

The buyBAMA system is fully supported by the University’s Purchasing department. We understand that issues and questions will arise from time to time and we are here to help! Please email buyBAMA@fa.ua.edu should you have any questions, need assistance troubleshooting any issues or desire one-on-one or group training.
