KnightSource is SUNY Geneseo's primary shopping environment and electronic requisitioning, payment, and receiving system. It provides a completely electronic and paperless workflow for purchase requisitions, purchase orders, receiving, and payment vouchers, and improves efficiency by allowing State and Research Foundation orders to be processed, and campus departments to access all documents, within a single system. Further, all of this functionality is wrapped in an Amazon.com - like shopping experience.
Although launched as the College's primary shopping environment and electronic requisitioning, payment, and receiving system, KnightSource will evolve over the years ahead to become Procurement Services' main source for a variety of electronic tools and templates that will allow it to more efficiently process all types of competitive solicitations, manage contracts, and obtain accurate spend data. It also will become the business community's main source for learning about and participating in the College's procurement opportunities.

Its Roots in SUNY Shared Services
KnightSource is a JAGGAER-based comprehensive e-procurement software solution that was implemented through a multi-year collaboration between the SUNY Western New York campuses, Stony Brook University, the System Administration Office of Business Operations & Procurement, and the Research Foundation for SUNY, as part of a SUNY Shared Services initiative, to transform the SUNY procurement environment from its heavily-transactional state to one that is conducive to strategic thinking. SUNY Geneseo is proud to be one of the first two SUNY campuses to go live with this new software, along with University at Buffalo.
