What Are Procurement Desktop Reports?

Procurement Desktop Reports (PDR) are a suite of web-based reports developed by Procurement Services. The reports draw data from the PAS Data Warehouse nightly and JP Morgan Chase PaymentNet once a month.

***Notice: These reports will be available for a limited time after Workday goes live in July. The will no longer be updated at that time. 

Accessing Data in PDR

PDR is an open access system but is only available to those with a staff NetID; shared and student NetIDs are not allowed. Additionally, the PDR are accessible only through the NetID domain; if you are logging in from another domain (such as UWB\ appearing before your NetID), you will need to type netid\ before your NetID to change the domain. Internet Explorer will show which domain you are logging in from; Chrome and Firefox do not.

PDR is on a secure server, which means that accessing the reports from a site other than the three main campus locations, you may need to download and utilize the Husky OnNet VPN. This is especially true when working from home.

Note: For many reports, you may also need to know your 10-digit Organization code.

Available Reports 

Reports are available for various categories of data and are useful to departments for many processes, including: approving payment of invoices, tracking payments, budget reconciliation, assuring appropriate use of department resources, and managing compliance issues. We recommend checking these reports often to assist with your department's reconciliation process.

For a list of current reports available in PDR and a brief summary of what they contain, please go to the Report Directory in PDR. Reports are grouped by category.

For a list of frequently-accessed reports, simply go to the My Reports PDR.

Best Practices

  • Per request from our users, PDR has been updated to show the full document on the page instead of a partial view. 
  • For Windows users, do not use the Edge browser or the Windows Reader app as it does not function properly with the EDMS system. Only use Adobe Reader.
