Why use UPMS?

The University is characterised by decentralised decision making whereby each department can choose their own suppliers, software and equipment. However, UPMS has distinct advantages over other suppliers:

  • Ensures compliance to University standards and legal requirements.
  • Reduction of costs to the University as payment is by internal journal transfer and the payment of external supplier invoices entails unnecessary administration for University departments.
  • Auditable retail sales mechanism to satisfy University financial reporting and other obligations (eg GST) regarding sale of University publications including student notes.
  • Auditable and timely transfer of Student Notes sales revenue and reimbursements to departments
  • Provides security printing services in regards to payslips, examinations and group certificates.
  • UPMS provides a 'one stop shop' for all departmental printing requirements.
