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.

Order Categories

There are currently three order categories in Mane Market: 1 – Regular, 2-Confirming – Do Not Distribute, and 3 – Payment Request. Please see below for an explanation of each order category and when it should be used.

  • 1 - Regular
    • Should be used when you have not placed the order directly with the vendor. When this requisition type is approved, the purchase order will be distributed to the vendor from Mane Market, thus placing the order.
    • The billing instructions on the purchase order instruct the vendor to submit the invoice directly to Accounts Payable. If you receive the invoice in your department, it must be submitted to Accounts Payable by adding a comment to the purchase order, attaching the invoice to the comment, and sending that comment to
  • 2 – Confirming – Do Not Distribute
    • When this requisition type is approved it will create a purchase order but that purchase order is not sent to the vendor. Examples:
      • Purchase orders to Xerox or other copier machine providers for your copier agreements
      • Orders to hotels and Enterprise
      • Orders on the Exception List where we instruct you to use a "2-Confirming – Do Not Distribute"
    • If you receive the invoice in your department, it must be submitted to Accounts Payable. That is done by adding a comment to the purchase order, attaching the invoice to the comment, and sending that comment to
  • 3 - Payment Request
    • Should be used for non-compliant purchases.
    • A PF 205 – Non Compliant Memorandum must be attached to process this form.
    • If you have an employee reimbursement or student stipend, DO NOT process on a requisition, create a non-PO based invoice.

Exception List

Services Performed by Individuals

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. If multiple payments are scheduled, a separate internal invoice will be required for each payment.

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. The Supplier will need to be "Enterprise Holdings Inc" from Austin, TX (Supplier Number: X0105318). 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.

Employee Reimbursements

Employee reimbursements should only be processed on a non-PO based invoice. Do not submit a requisition to reimburse an employee.


Start by creating a non-catalog item on a requisition. Use "Sodexo Inc & Associates" for the Supplier. You will need to change the Order Category from "1-Regular" to "2-Confirming-Do Not Distribute".


For Magnuson in Commerce, search for "Magnuson" on the home page and use the contracted rate available. The same arrangement is available for the Holiday Inn in Greenville. For other hotels, create a non-catalog requisition. You will need to change the Order Category from "1-Regular" to "2-Confirming-Do Not Distribute".

Contracts or Orders with Terms and Conditions

If the quote or supporting documentation has terms and conditions, please check the approval path under the "PR Approvals" tab in the requisition. If the Purchasing approval step is not included, please check the "Route to Procurement Services" checkbox. We can review and sign the document when we issue the Purchase Order.

Shipping/Freight Fee

For requisitions with shipping line items, use commodity code 78121603 (Freight Fee). You will need to override the object code for this line item in the accounting line item to match the object code of the most expensive item on the requisition. For example, if the order is for $4,000 worth of apparel and $83 shipping, the shipping line item object code would be overridden to match the apparel.
