What is Mane Market?

Mane Market is a web-based e-Procurement system which replaces current purchasing processes at TAMUC (FAMIS).  Mane Market is a third-party solution provided by JAGGAER (formerly SciQuest).  It was founded in 1955, and has a client base which includes over 260 universities across the United States, as well as institutions in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Why is TAMUC Transitioning to Mane Market?

The Texas A&M University System is aligning procurement processes for all System members.

Please ensure that any requisitions submitted for parties that will not submit an invoice to the University include a completed PF230 Internal Invoice as the quote. You will also need to change the Order Category from "1-Regular" to "2-Confirming-Do Not Distribute".

For purchases of services from an individual, the PF231 Employee vs. Contractor Questionnaire will also be required to be attached under the Internal Attachments in the Mane Market requisition. This is an important distinction made by the Internal Revenue Service.

Enterprise Rental

Start by creating a non-catalog item on a requisition. You will need to change the Order Category from “1-Regular" to "2-Confirming Order-Do Not Distribute”.  The object code will need to be overridden and the correct object code will need to be used (3010 or 3410) on the requisition.  Rentals for the Greenville office will need to be completed via the form available on Marketplace here.

No attachments need to be added to Mane Market.
