Ariba Network

LANL is transitioning to the Ariba Network to provide a more efficient electronic transaction experience that will allow us to collaborate seamlessly with suppliers.

On Feb. 16, 2021, LANL is launching Ariba, but only as a pilot initially, meaning it will only affect certain suppliers. Suppliers that are a part of this pilot will be notified. In the meantime, we need all suppliers to register in Ariba so they are ready to do business with us on the Ariba Network starting May 2021. Existing contracts will also be transitioned from Oracle to Ariba soon.

LANL Is Moving to the Ariba Network

LANL is transitioning to the Ariba Network to provide a more efficient electronic transaction experience that will allow us to collaborate seamlessly with suppliers. The implementation offers one portal for LANL to collaborate effectively with suppliers when we buy, invoice, select, negotiate agreements, and manage information and relationships – all in a simple, compliant and efficient manner.

Transacting electronically on the Ariba Network will soon be a standard part of doing business with LANL. This new platform will allow many of our suppliers to move away from paper-based and manually transmitted purchase orders and invoices currently associated with our LANL system. Also, LANL will use Ariba and Ariba Discovery for future solicitations and awards.
