SPPS Announces New Functionality with Amazon Business

Purchasing & Contract Services is excited to announce the launch of a new functionality for users in SPPS, for Amazon Business. Users will be able to create lists to send to those authorized to make purchases in an effort to increase communication and efficiency. You should receive additional communications about the timing of the launch as well as instructions on how to join the official Saint Paul Public Schools Amazon Business account (if you are not already a user).

In the new environment there are two user types:

  • Pcard users (those able to place orders)
  • List users (those able to create lists and forward to Pcard users) to purchase on their behalf

This functionality lauched on April 19, 2021. We will keep you informed of any changes to the proposed schedule.

Further details on the new program are located on the Purchasing & Contract Services website at under Staff Resources. Those individuals that do not have an existing Amazon Business account will receive messages from regarding the process to set up an account. Please be on the lookout for those messages in your inbox.

Thank you,

Jamie Atkins, Purchasing Manager
