NEW Technology Purchasing Process at Ferris
eHSARF is on its way out!
The eHSARF system is no longer being used to submit technology purchase requests.
The new system is accessible through the Technology Service Portal in MyFSU.
Please pass this information along to those who need more information on how to use
the new technology purchasing process. This process is used for making technology
purchases using University funds.
The link to the “How to Submit a Technology Purchase Request” document below is a
quick way to get started using the system. The link to the “Technology Service Portal
Training Video” below provides in-depth training on how the system works. Most individuals
will only need to watch the first half of the training video related to entering a
purchase request in the system. The second half of the video is for departmental approvers.
In the video you will learn:
• How to access the new technology purchasing system.
• How to submit a purchase request.
• How to add attachments to a purchase request.
• How to review the status of your purchase request.
• How to add comments to an existing purchase request.
• How the approval and review process work in the new system.
Key personnel in each department have been trained on how to use the new system. Stop
by your department administrative office or call the TAC at 231-591-4822 if you need
assistance using the new system to make a technology purchase request using University
What is going to happen to the existing eHSARF system?
The current eHSARF system will stay online until all the existing purchase requests
have been processed and the data is available for access from another system. A communication
will be sent out notifying the campus when the eHSARF system will be turned off and
how to access the archived data.
