Coupa, LifeLong’s New Web-based System Goes Live Jan. 17

Dear LifeLong Staff,

We are excited to announce that we are officially going live with Coupa as of Tuesday, January 17th!

As mentioned, we are taking a phased approach to our Coupa project. On January 17th, all procurement users will be able to access the system to place and approve orders and a smaller group of expense users will be going live (Facilities, Street Medicine, and BSP). The rest of the expense users will be going live in the coming weeks.

Coupa will be our web-based system for creating purchase requisitions, initiating approvals, creating purchase orders to suppliers, receiving invoices from suppliers for payment, and submitting expense reports. Coupa will be replacing Bellwether as our purchasing system and Bellwether will not be available to place new requisitions after January 16th.

Please expect more emails from me (and others) as we prepare for our go-live date. We will be sending out Coupa Guides, Coupa PowerPoints, hosting “Coupa office hours” 2x a week, and Q&A sessions during the week of January 30th.  In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our project lead Coupa consultant Jenn Irving at or please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.
