Business Enterprises, Inc. (BEI)

East Campus Restaurant Development: UWF Business Enterprises, Inc., in partnership with Compass/Chartwells, broke ground in the Spring of 2014. This groundbreaking marked the beginning of a very exciting time for the University. Construction began on the East Campus Restaurant site in May. Compass/Chartwells has employed CBRE, a national  lease marketing firm who was the consultant for the City of Pensacola, for the Airport, Community Maritime Stadium and the Port of Pensacola, and Beck Properties, Pensacola, to market leases.  BEI is expecting to open the East Campus, "Argonaut Village" in mid - 2015.

Road Work to Begin at Argonaut Village (Campus Dr & Davis Hwy) on Monday, March 9, 2015: Lane closures and traffic delays may be experienced. Work is anticipated to take 2 weeks to complete. Please avoid this area if at all possible.

The work will include, but not be limited to, new turn/deceleration lanes, entrances, and associated utility work. While most of this work will be occurring from 10pm until 6am, some work will occur on the shoulders during the day.

Procurement & Contracts

Contract Routing: Please note that any non-academic contract requiring payment should initially be sent to P&C will be responsible for forwarding to the General Counsel’s Office. This will allow for centralization and proper routing and monitoring. Instructions and new routing slip will be forthcoming. Please note: You must have an authorized signature delegation on file in order to sign contracts on behalf of UWF.

If You Have Not Picked Up Your PCard - for Expired PCards Only – If your PCard had an expiration date of 3/15, please come by Bldg. 20W Room 159E to pick up your new card. Cardholders must return their old card and present a photo ID to pick-up their new card.  Information/Questions: Eric Engelmeyer, , Ext. 2629 or Bob Pacenta,, Ext. 2627

FY 15/16 Purchase Requests: New fiscal year requisitions may not be entered into Banner until the green light has been given by budget that the current FY is closed out completely. We are anticipating a start date of July 7th but departments must wait until P&C sends out the notification via group email. PCard purchases do not stop and cardholders holders may purchase as normal, however, all PCard expenditures at this point will be using FY 15/16 funds. 

Online Ordering: When ordering goods online (i.e. Dell, Apple, etc.), please make sure you enter the “ship to” address as your building and room number. The default address is the Controller’s Office because it is the billing office. When things show up there it takes valuable time to track down who it belongs to and it stands a chance of being refused. Thank you for your assistance.

Vendor Direct Deposit: In an effort to become more efficient, Accounts Payable is offering the option of Direct Deposit for payment to vendors. This will allow the vendor to be paid quicker and that’s one less check to process. If current or prospective vendors are interested, please direct them to this link:
