We recognize that the Purchase Requisition and Purchase Order transactions are difficult. Due to the Arkansas Transparency Project (Act 303 of 2011), you will be required to use these transactions. We are creating a simplified versions of the Purchase Requisition (ME51N) and Purchase Order (ME21N).
Our approach The current PR and PO are complicated transactions that take a lot of time. Sometimes, like using the IRS 1040 tax forms, it is necessary to take the time and use the more complicated forms. Complicated purchases will require the more complicated features in AASIS.
This means that the old way isnt going anywhere! But …..
Our approach The majority of our purchases are routine and not overly complicated. Just like the IRS created the 1040- EZ form as an option, we are creating simple versions of the PR and PO.
You will have one button to choose whether to use current version or the simplified version: Our approach
Simplified PR Highlights If you have customized this table, your choices will default You must choose or create a valid Delivery Address
Simplified PR Highlights Simplified Tab View displays information from Valuation Tab and Delivery Address Tab on one screen. Account Assignment Codes are selected by push buttons. Screen elements from Delivery Address tab

Simplified PO Highlights Notice the Button which will give you full descriptions of each Reference Value
Simplified PO Highlights Minority purchases can be documented with one click.
Simplified PO Highlights The Item Detail tab is simplified, giving a consistent look and feel to the Item Detail tab on the Simplified PR.
Simplified PO Highlights Added New Description for the following fields: G/L Account Cost Center WBS Element
How did we get here? We studied the existing ME21N and ME51N to determine: –Current errors –Excessive mouse clicks –Usage patterns We engaged with OSP and several representative user agencies for advice.
Whats next? We will complete design by end of March New functionality will be thoroughly tested New screens will be added to existing training What Changed training will be offered to seasoned users The screens will be deployed on a rolling basis (The agencies that assisted with design will get to start first) You will have the choice to use the new style or the old style.
