3 MFMP Utilization Update Agencies continue to improve their utilization of MFMP, especially in the eQuote metric which is now over 59% average statewide utilization. The MFMP team has reached out to the six agencies who are not currently using eQuote to schedule meetings to discuss how we can better support you in increasing your utilization. 3

6 MFMP Object Code Conversion MFMP will be working with DFS to support agencies with the object code conversion as part of the DFS object code standardization project. We presented the conversion approach at the DFS workshop on Sept. 18, 2014. Once new statewide object codes are added to FLAIR, agencies can process change orders to update object codes on MFMP encumbered purchase orders (POs). Customers with the “CO No Workflow” group may process a change order to edit object codes without re-generating the requisition approval flow. 6

7 MFMP Object Code Conversion During an agency’s final conversion, MFMP and DFS will coordinate the conversion of remaining MFMP encumbered POs with agency unique object codes. DFS will provide MFMP a file of encumbrances to convert, including: – Encumbrance number– Other cost accumulator (OCA) – Encumbrance line number– External category – Agency unique code– External object code – “New” statewide object code – External general ledger MFMP will use this file to update the associated POs, during planned MFMP downtime, to ensure that MFMP and FLAIR are kept in sync. 7

8 MFMP Object Code Conversion DFS will provide MFMP with a new commodity code (CC) to SWOC crosswalk in Dec. 2014. Any PRs created after the new CC crosswalk is loaded will default to SWOC. PRs in ‘Composing’ or ‘Submitted’ status will not be converted. Invoice reconciliations (IRs) will not be converted. Prior to your agency’s conversion, there will be a drop-dead date to submit IRs to the DFS auditors (similar to year-end processing). 8
