Supply Chain at Success Academy

We are committed to providing our community with the highest levels of quality and efficiency and welcome inquiries from suppliers who seek to do the same.

Transacting with Success Academy

All suppliers wanting to transact with Success Academy must first be added as a supplier in Success Academy’s purchasing system, Coupa. Suppliers who are already using Coupa with other customers must also be added to Success Academy’s Coupa instance. See below for more information about the Coupa onboarding process.



Invoicing and Payment Details

Submitting Invoices for Payment

Success Academy processes all invoices through Coupa regardless of the submission method. Suppliers may submit invoices using any one of the following three methods:

  1. The most efficient method is via a dedicated connection (cXML). If your organization supports cXML invoicing and you are not currently set up to do so, email [email protected] successacademies.org.
  2. The second preferred method is by invoicing directly from the Success Academy issued PO in the Coupa Supplier Portal. Detailed instructions for this process can be found here.
  3. The third is to email a searchable PDF of the invoice to [email protected]. The name of the Success Academy contact who requested the goods or services and the PO number must be noted on each invoice. Each email can have multiple attachments, but multiple invoices cannot be consolidated into one attachment. This email inbox is not monitored and any content in the body of the email will not be read.

Payment status inquiries

The CSP is the best resource for up to date invoice status and payment details. All POs and associated invoices are listed in the CSP, even if the invoice was created in another system.

Current Requests for Proposal

Success Academy is not conducting any Requests for Proposals at this time.

About the Team

The Success Academy Supply Chain team, headed by David Mueller and located at the SA network office, strives to re-imagine public schooling procurement in service of our mission of delivering outstanding schooling to NYC children. We are committed to providing our community with the highest levels of quality and efficiency and welcome inquiries from suppliers who seek to do the same.

The Procurement team handles sourcing, bidding, negotiating, storing, delivering, and supplier performance management on behalf of SA, as well as the administration of Coupa, our business spend management platform. We also handle the purchasing process for larger purchases on behalf of SA. For smaller purchases, school operations teams and network teams will often handle the purchasing process.
