Case Study 2 The History Department at Texas State is having a Texas Music History concert, and you are the Administrative Assistant.

Payment Amounts: Jimi Jones ($2,000), Janis Butler ($2,000), Elvis Brown ($2,000) Caterer: Johnny B. Good BBQ ($900) Award to: Ella Fitzgerald Hughes, Music professor at Texas State ($100) 13
Case Study 2 - Challenges: 1) You have researched SAP and found that: Jimi Jones is a new vendor. Janis Butler was setup as a vendor last year. Should you worry about her address and banking information being different now? Elvis Brown was setup as a vendor 4 years ago. Should you worry about his address and banking information being different now? The caterer Johnny B. Good BBQ is a new vendor. (Another question: does the caterer need to be on the approved caterers list?) Ella F. Hughes is a Music professor at Texas State. 2) The musicians all request to be paid on the night of performance ($2,000 each). Do we need a contract or a purchase order? 3) Do we need a contract or purchase order for the caterer ($900)? 4) What kind of form is needed for payment? 5) Can we just cut Ella F. Hughes a check through A/P ($100 award)? 14

Contracts: Special Payment Request Jimi Jones, musician Janis Butler, musician Elvis Brown, musician Contracts (Form FS-04) - A separate agreement is needed with each of the musicians because they request special payment terms. The vendors own contracts may be submitted if approved. Purchase orders are not needed because the amounts (cumulative for the fiscal year) are less than $5,000. 3.3. No Contract: Payment less than $5,000 JBG BBQ, catererNeither a contract nor a purchase order is needed with the caterer because the cumulative amount for the fiscal year is less than $5,000. 4.4.

Vendor Maintenance: Jackie Price, Acct Clerk II, FI Master Data Center or Marketa Willis, Acct Clerk II, FI Master Data Center 16
17 Is the vendor in our system and is information current? Or is this a new vendor? Existing vendor: The Account Manager and/or the Administrative Assistant will review the existing vendor file in SAP, and confirm the information listed with the vendor. If the vendor has moved or changed banks, the Vendor completes a new Form FS-01, Vendor Maintenance form. New vendor: The Account Manager asks the vendor to complete a Form FS-01, Vendor Maintenance form. Instructions for the vendor: The vendor prints, signs, and sends to the FI Master Data Center via fax or mail. Form FS-01, Vendor Maintenance form includes the W-9 information.
18 Vendor Information Due to the confidential nature of the vendor maintenance form the departments should not receive or keep a copy of the form. Allow time for information to be verified and entered into our system. Contact FI Master Data Center for assistance. – (Jackie Price, jp54, or Marketa Willis, mw34) http://www.txstate.edu/gao/fimd/forms
19 Are vendors required to provide social security number? (Privacy Act of 1974) Yes - According to the Privacy Act of 1974 an individual is not legally compelled to provide Social Security number -- unless involved in a transaction in which the IRS requires notification. If we pay a contractor, we need to have a taxpayer number on file. We retain the taxpayer number in our files for identification purposes, and because the IRS requires a W-9 of all vendors. The Vendor Maintenance form is a substitute W-9 under IRS guidelines. The VMR form is only kept on file by the FI Master Data Center and is secure information.

Information Regarding All Service Contracts or Agreements If a contractor submits to Texas State their own contract boilerplate, or requires additional terms and conditions be added to Texas States boilerplate, the contract must be reviewed by the universitys legal counsel or the Texas State University System Office Attorney prior to being signed by a Texas State authorized contracting officer. 25

A Contract & a Purchase Order Is Required if: Paying $5,000 or more to a vendor. But also if making several payments to a vendor, which will cumulatively amount to $5,000 or more during the fiscal year. A Contract Only is Required if: When paying less than $5,000, and special payment arrangements are requested by the vendor, or travel is included. For instance, if someone is paid a deposit in advance, or several payments are to be made to the vendor, or travel is included, a written agreement (contract) is required.
A Contract Is…… An agreement between the university and an outside vendor: Describes the work to be performed. Describes the expectations of both parties. Has an amount to pay, terms of payment, and a not to exceed amount. Has a beginning and ending date. A contract puts a verbal agreement into writing.

29 Purchase Order Create Purchase Order through the SAP Requisition system. You must already have a vendor number, and a fully executed contract. The purchase order should match the not to exceed amount on the contract. This amount can be estimated, and increased or closed out. Contact the Purchasing Office if you need assistance.

How to Process the Payment Linda Clark Accountant III, Accounts Payable 37
39 Payment Voucher Review The Accounts Payable office audits each payment voucher or invoice prior to payment. If any information is incomplete or appears incorrect, payment is withheld until information is corrected. Review each voucher prior to submitting to assure that information is complete and correct: Vendor Name & vendor number Description: Describe work that has been completed. Performance Dates- Payment cannot be paid until performance end date. Exception – deposit required by contract. Vendor signature, unless vendors invoice is attached. Amount to pay Fund and cost center, or purchase order number Signature of Account Manager
40 Payment Voucher Review Contact Information: Provide the contact information for the Administrative Assistant, or the person working on the documents. This is our contact for questions. Advance Payment or Deposit Request: If the vendor requires advance payment, or a deposit, or a check to be presented on the night of performance, a written agreement (contract) is necessary. Advance payments or check pickup must be approved by Asst Dir of Accounting - Accounts Payable (Sergio Rey).
41 Texas Prompt Payment Law \ Texas Prompt Payment Law Interest must be paid for invoices older than 30 days – turn in Payment Vouchers or vendor invoices promptly. The earliest date stamp on the payment voucher is used to comply with the Prompt Payment state law.
42 Payment Voucher as a Substitute Invoice The Contracted Services Payment Voucher (Form FS-03) is considered a substitute invoice. When the department wants to pay for services, but the vendor being paid does not issue an invoice, form FS-03 is used. If there is a purchase order, the vendors invoice alone can be used. Write the purchase order number on the invoice, and have it approved by the Account Manager with signature. If the department attaches the vendors invoice to form FS-03 (when there is no purchase order), all information on the invoice must match the payment voucher.
43 Possible Reasons for Processing Delay New vendor – must be set up in SAP system Vendor information is incorrect Vendor is on State Hold Vendor is or was an employee of TS < the past 12 months Signatures or information missing Purchase order or contract needed Approval of OSP is needed for grants Foreign vendor Future performance date
44 Gifts or Awards Payments for Gifts. Payment for small gifts for retirees, speakers, etc can be processed through A/P. The value of a gift may be taxable to an employee, depending on the amount and the type of award. Cash awards are taxable. For employees – use a PCR. For students, or other non-employees, use the AP-1 form. Gift Cards. Small value gift cards can be purchased as an incentive for Human Subject Research studies or for student incentive programs. Otherwise, gift cards are not allowed. Reimbursement of gift certificates or gift cards purchased with personal funds or personal credit cards is prohibited.

Travel reimbursements to contractors – Most independent contractors pay their own travel. Under certain circumstances, travel expenses can be included with a contract agreement with a vendor. This is usually the case for conferences held at Texas State, or payments to nonresident aliens. Under the Accountable Plan: Without Receipts : Travel expenses will be coded as part of the contractors fee if travel receipts are not included with the payment voucher. With Receipts: Travel will be coded as 725100, Independent Contractor travel. Business Purpose: Travel reimbursement requests must state the university business purposes and must benefit the university. Travel reimbursement to a contractor, when paid, must be included in contract agreement. (Contract Form FS-04, Part II-C.) 45
