5The Procurement Process Solicitation Evaluation Award
6Our GoalRight ItemRight TimeRight PlaceRight PriceEvery Time
7The Purchase Request (PR) Trailer Defines the requirementIdentifies the item and quantities to be procuredUtilized in preparation of the solicitation and the awardInformation to assist buyerInformation on trailer not provided to the contractorPR trailer is located in the EProcurement System in Records Management
8Locating the PR Trailer Once logged into the Pre Award Workload screen, click on the PR number hyperlink you wish to open. A new window will open.Once in the PR click on the DISPLAY hyperlink next to Records Management. A new window will open.Click the drop down arrow next to the folder labeled PR/MIPR/REQ
9Locating the PR Trailer Double Click the PR trailer. This will load up a PDF of the PR trailer.**NOTE**If you go through the above steps, and there is not a PR trailer, than your PR may be an auto-solicitation that has not dropped to a manual PR. If this happens, then you must either wait for it to drop, or for the system to award it.
10Header - PR No.PR No: A eight digit, sequential number used to identify a purchase requestCreated in a system external to SRM (SAP ECC) and brought into SRMGenerally the number starts with a “4”Created for small and large purchase requirements
11Shopping Cart Manually created within SRM Another term for a PR No. 10 digit number generally starting with a “1”Would be created for Long Term Contract Projects
12PR No. vs Shopping Cart These two terms may be used interchangeably. How to differentiate between the two:Review your PR workload screen:If 8 digits – PR No. to procure a small purchase (Under SAT< $150,000) or a large (Over Small Acquisition Threshold (SAT) > $150,000)If 10 digits – Shopping Cart created for a Long Term Contract Project
13Header – Document Type (Doc Type) Doc Type: This field is coded with PR Document Types. The following are possible values for this field:NBPurchase RequisitionZMManu Planned Order
14Header - Solicitation Number (Sol No) Only visible if an “Automated Solicitation” or PR has been solicited manuallyProvides solicitation number of the procurement-Examples: SPM4A1-10-T-0012 (Automated Solicitation) or SPM4A1- 11-Q-0105 (Manual Solicitation)Auto Solicited PRs are automatically solicited by the computer systemAssigns solicitation number with “T” in the ninth position
15Header - Est Value Total Estimated Procurement Price Calculated by multiplying the Est. Price (Estimated Price) by the total PR quantityThis estimated dollar value is used to determine how the PR should be solicited:Is a Small Business Set-Aside required?Is this a micro purchase? (<$3000)Clause Selection CriteriaSimplified Acquisition Threshold (Under SAT-<$150K) or Over SAT >S150K (Large Purchase)
16Header - Est Value If a PR has more then one PR Line: A separate PR trailer will print out for each PR LineThe Est Value block on each PR will reflect the total value for both PRs
17Calculating the Estimated Value (Est Value) Let’s Practice!Example 1:Qty 10Est. Price: $25.00Estimated Value ?????10 x $25.00=$250.00Example 2:Qty: 20Est. Price: $10.0020 x $10.00=$200.00
