Electronic Payment Methods: Paymode-X & Payment Plus

UCLA is working with two electronic payment networks, Paymode-X (through BNY-Mellon and Bottomline Technologies) and Payment Plus (through US Bank), to enhance our payment processes and provide more efficient and secure methods to pay our suppliers.

OfficeMax Is New Vendor in BruinBuy

BruinBuy users who are accustomed to seeing the supplier name BCOP-webMethods, which represents Boise/Cascade, should look for the corporate name OfficeMax as a replacement starting October 17, 2005. UCLA established an agreement with OfficeMax, a Boise company, in August 2004 and added the company to the BruinBuy vendor list using the supplier name BCOP-webMethods. The upcoming name change to OfficeMax will not affect any of your settings or favorite items. When doing a search for office products within BruinBuy, enter “OfficeMax” as the supplier.
