Online Shopping Cart at Rensselaer (OSCAR) is a user-friendly eProcurement solution designed to streamline the requisition process for campus requestors.  OSCAR allows for a more integrated and flexible purchasing experience in accessing both catalog and non-catalog suppliers.


Benefits to you and the campus include:

  • one-stop shopping for all requisitioning
  • point-and-click requisitioning eliminates time-consuming manual forms
  • online approvals, visibility of order status and online receiving
  • faster delivery of products/services through shortened processing times
  • ability to track order status and view order history online


To place an order with one of the online catalog suppliers, launch OSCAR. To request a user be added to OSCAR, please fill out the New OSCAR User request form in OSCAR.
