Box

Faculty & Staff Sign Up for Box Accounts

Faculty and staff can register online to activate their secure storage on Box.com, https://tulane.box.com.

What is Box/Box Sync?

Box online storage is like a hard drive in the cloud. Store documents and files in Box and then access them anywhere, anytime, from any device. Box also can sync files from your local hard disk, through the Box Sync software, automatically providing a backup that will always be available from other computers and devices. All Tulane faculty and staff have access to unlimited storage on Box and can view and access their content anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Who has access?

All Tulane Faculty and staff have access to storage on Box. Students do not have access to a Tulane provisioned Box account but may create personal accounts directly with Box with 10GB of storage.

HIPAA Protected Data

Tulane now has a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with Box cloud storage that allows HIPAA protected data to be stored on Box.

Students

Although the Tulane Box environment is only available to faculty and staff, students may create personal accounts directly with Box, with 10GB of storage. Visit https://www.box.com to set up your box account. Please note that the password you set up with Box will not be synced with your Tulane password.

An alternative to Box, is Microsoft’s OneDrive. Available to students as a free cloud storage solution, OneDrive is a part of Microsoft Office365 and provides 1 TB of storage, as long as a student is enrolled at Tulane.

SciQuest eProcurement

The Materials Management department is working on implementing the eProcurement platform, SciQuest, to replace TAMS Oracle for requisitioning and purchase order generation and Concur for check requests and most purchasing card orders. With SciQuest we will have a better guide to our major spend suppliers, and can thereby reduce the cost of needed supplies and services. We have already sourced office supplies through Staples, laboratory supplies through Fisher Scientific and computers and related accessories through Dell, Apple, and CDWG. The number of catalog suppliers in SciQuest will be expanding. 

Travel and entertainment reimbursements/expenses are not affected and will continue to be handled via Concur Travel/Expense.

Purchasing card policies and restrictions on certain categories of supplies and materials may change in the future. Users will find the SciQuest catalog portals easy to use and versatile. 

Tulane will be conducting hands-on SciQuest training sessions for university staff and faculty. Sessions will be held on both the Uptown and Health Sciences Center campuses.

Users may start using the SciQuest eProcurement application as soon as they complete training. 

To see when and where introductory training sessions will be held, please log in to http://training.tulane.edu with your Tulane user name and password and select the session you would like to attend. Depending on the training location, sessions may have a maximum number of attendees from 17 to 20 per session.
