Statewide Financial System Program 6 SFS PO Terms and Concepts In this lesson, you should learn: Key SFS Purchasing terms and concepts. Key SFS Purchasing process changes. Key SFS Purchasing ChartField values.
Statewide Financial System Program 7 Key Terms and Concepts – Contracts SFS PO Terms and Concepts Term/ConceptDefinition Procurement Contract The procurement contract is a document used to establish an agreement with a vendor for the purchase of goods and / or services. Centralized Contracts Centralized contracts are contracts established by one agency for use by other agencies and are managed within SFS. The contract language and detail can be accessed on the website of the contracts holding agency. Audit Type Audit type replaces the Batch Type as the value that determines if a transaction must be routed to OSC for approval. Amendment An amendment is used to modify the terms, conditions, and / or contract amounts related to a formal contract between a vendor and the state entity. Amendment Sequence Number A sequence number uniquely identifies each transaction with a contract and is required to encumber PO funds against a contract.
Statewide Financial System Program 8 Key Terms and Concepts – Purchase Orders SFS PO Terms and Concepts Term/ConceptDefinition Buyer A buyer is a user with security privileges to create purchase orders and PO change orders. PO Dispatch PO dispatch is a batch process used to generate a PDF document that contains purchase order information to be sent to the vendor. PO Change Order A PO change order is created when changes are made on a dispatched purchase order to the header, lines, or schedule. It copies the information from the purchase order but is assigned a change sequence and must re-enter workflow. Sourcing Sourcing is an automated process that allows users to create purchase orders from requisitions based on user defined criteria. Purchase Order A PO is a written contract between a buyer and seller detailing the exact items or services to be rendered from a vendor. POs can be standalone or associated to a contract.
Statewide Financial System Program 9 Process Changes – Contracts (1 of 3) SFS PO Terms and Concepts Old ProcessNew Process The AC340 is used to encumber funds. In SFS, funds are encumbered through the purchase order, not the contract. Also, AC340 in SFS is represented by a Contract Record (Single Transaction Summary) and a Purchase Order encumbrance. Contracts are routed and approved manually. Once the contract is saved, a processor must review the contract and change its status. Upon agency approval, the contract transaction will be routed to OSC for approval, depending on the audit type selected. Electronically, agencies can change the vendor name associated with a contract; the original contract number and all other related data is retained. In SFS, vendor reassignments on a purchase order or contract must be addressed by closing the current purchase order or contract and then creating a new one. Agencies must request this task be completed by the BOC. Name change requests must be sent to OSC VMU.
Statewide Financial System Program 10 Process Changes – Contracts (2 of 3) SFS PO Terms and Concepts Old ProcessNew Process Contract numbers can be reused. Agencies can reuse contract numbers if BOC rejects a contract for any reason. The number cannot be reused if there is an existing contract with the same number in SFS. The management of contract budgets and deliverables is frequently paper- based. Time-based deliverables are not communicated to the vendor consistently. Agencies create PO releases from approved contracts in SFS and contract budgets, and deliverables must be managed to the individual PO release. Encumbrance transactions and vouchers are created against contract numbers. Purchase orders are used for the encumbrance and must reference the contract number. Vouchers must reference purchase orders, not contracts.
Statewide Financial System Program 11 Process Changes – Contracts (3 of 3) SFS PO Terms and Concepts Old ProcessNew Process BOC can make changes to the contract transaction record in CAS on behalf of agencies, and update start and end dates for contracts, which start on OSC approval. The only agency submitted information that BOC will be able to update in SFS as part of its audit is contract begin and end date. Changes, including corrections, to any other data fields will require that the contract be returned to the agency disapproved, and the agency will need to create a replacement contract (no resubmissions). Agencies submit expense and revenue contracts using the same process. Phase 1 agencies enter revenue (customer) contracts in SFS in the Customer Contracts module. The selection of contract type determines if the contract requires BOC approval. Prior to the transaction, there must be a valid customer for the contract. In addition, when a revenue contract is amended, a new transaction is created with a new contract number.
Statewide Financial System Program 12 Process Changes – Purchase Orders SFS PO Terms and Concepts Old ProcessNew Process Purchase Orders are managed via many different processes. All agencies will use the same SFS system workflow to process and record approvals. Agencies create and approve purchase orders and contracts on paper before entering the approved transactions into their system. Agencies will use the system generated workflow to approve purchase orders and contracts. Several processes exist for locating transactions within the approval process. All agencies will use the same SFS system workflow for the approval process.
Statewide Financial System Program 13 Process Changes – Purchase Orders (cont.) SFS PO Terms and Concepts Old ProcessNew Process Vendor IDs are entered into a free form text field for Payee ID. Agencies will choose vendors from a list of valid vendors. There is no integration between the requisition and a purchase order. In SFS, requisitions can be used to electronically create a purchase order. Each purchase order is completed manually. In SFS, a new purchase order can be created by copying from a previously processed purchase order. In CAS, in order to encumber funds or create a purchase order, only the PO number and chart of account information is required. All purchase orders in SFS require a vendor ID number, item, unique PO number, and ChartField distribution.
Statewide Financial System Program 14 SFS PO Terms and Concepts At the transactional level, the SFS Chart of Accounts is comprised of two elements: General Ledger Business Unit (BU) – Defined for each entity that maintains and reports on its own transactional data. Chartfields – Codes used to categorize financial and budget transactions. Statewide ChartField segments include Department, Program, Fund, Account (CAS Object code). Agency-specific ChartFields include Operating Unit and Product. The SFS Chart of Accounts may be explored further in the GL 105: Introduction to Chart of Accounts course. More details about the SFS Chart of Accounts may be obtained at: http://www.sfs.ny.gov/programElements/coaMaterials.htm
Statewide Financial System Program 15 Procurement Contracts In this lesson, you should learn: What are procurement contracts? The financial impact of contracts and encumbrances. How to create, approve, amend, and close a contract.
Statewide Financial System Program 16 Procurement Contracts Procurement contracts are used by the State of NY within SFS to denote an agreement to procure goods or services from a vendor. Contracts in SFS do not have a financial impact. Purchase Orders released from the contract encumber funds and identify a specific order against the contract, but a contract must be established before an encumbrance can be created against it. Some contracts require OSC approval while others do not; the audit type of the contract determines the approval process.
