Login to the Demo SystemThe Cooperative Purchasing System by default has two interfaces:
  • The public pages and
  • The member pages that require authentication.
    The page you are viewing now is a public page and does not need a login.
    The first step to navigate the Demo System is to login with the Demo permission.

    Project Home PageThe first page after authentication is the Project Home page. The top part is for the site navigation when you work with Projects, participate in Discussions, go to the Library and review the Profiles. We review all options as we move through the demo.

    The main page shows different news items and links.
    Projects Bookmarks are links to the projects that you need most often. You can select the projects in your preferences.
    Project Updates lists the most recent document additions. This is a quick way to get up-to-date on inportant changes.
    Calendar shows project milestones such as contract start and end dates.
    Discussion / Announcement shows the most recent additions in Discussion.
