Campus Market Place

Contract and Procurement Management is excited to introduce you to a new online E-procurement ordering solution. San Diego State University has partnered with nine of our sister campuses to develop a one stop shop for ordering using your Procurement Credit Card. The software supplier is ESM and the solution is the “Campus Marketplace.” The ESM Solutions website contains a collection of supplier catalogs, customized with CSU contracted pricing, for many of the items you commonly use. Shopping through the Campus Marketplace could save you as much as 17% to 29% on purchases. Attached, for your information, are the Current Suppliers on the Campus Marketplace.

ESM Solutions Web Account Setup

If you do not have an account please contact Business Information Systems to request your account set up in the Campus Marketplace. Shortly, after the account is set up, you will receive an automated E-mail from the ESM ordering solution, which will provide login and password instructions. The process for ordering is similar to any online ordering system and should be fairly simple.

For the Campus Market Place, users without a Procurement Credit Card (PCC) shall complete the Non-PCC Cardholder ESM Access — Transfer to Cart form. Please complete the request for the Transfer to Cart feature for your account and specify your department PCC holder with a valid Campus Market Place — ESM solutions account.

Note: All request and forms shall be returned to Business Information Systems.

Procurement Credit Card Program

Purchases made through the Campus Market Place shall be made using a Procurement Credit Card and guided by the PCC Handbook for appropriate purchases. If you would like to apply for a PCC and ESM access, please see Procurement Credit Card Program. Be sure and indicate on your application that you want an ESM access password.
