7 Commodity Code Standardization CR 155, an enhancement to standardize the State of Florida’s commodity codes, was implemented the week of June 30 – July 3, converting the Florida specific commodity codes (FLID) to the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) in all MFMP applications and VBS. All requisitions with a “Delay Purchase Until” of July 1 and open MFMP commodity level contracts were converted to the new code set. Available training on MFMP U: – Four webinars were conducted for agency customers beginning in June and concluding on July 15. – A job aid for agency customers including tips for locating commodity codes, order processing in MFMP, and reporting using the new commodity code set. – An online training for vendor customers covering how to select UNSPSC commodity codes. 7

8 VBS/MarketView Update MarketView has been officially sunset as of June 30, 2014. – Vendor data previously available through MarketView is now available on the MFMP Vendor Information Portal (VIP). – MFMP U has a new online training available for agency customers on how to search for vendors in VIP. – Commodity code information is available through the UNSPSC website ( or through MFMP Buyer. Open VBS advertisements had their commodity codes converted the night of June 30. The URL for the VBS search advertisements page has changed. We recommend updating any saved “favorites” to reflect the VBS home page. 8

9 VBS/MarketView Update The updated commodity code search in VBS allows agencies to search for codes by description or number within the VBS application. 9

10 VBS/MarketView Update Additionally, a new screen has been added to the “Create Advertisement” process allowing the user to upload files, edit the advertisement, or view the completed advertisement. 10

11 VBS/MarketView Update State Purchasing is looking for feedback on the Vendor Bid System. On July 11, State Purchasing distributed a survey to all VBS advertisement administrators and agency VBS administrators. Deadline for responses is July 25. Please encourage your teams to complete the survey. Your feedback is very valuable. 11

12 Professional Development Verifications and Updating of Needs Assessment Survey/Data Responses to last year’s needs assessment survey have been emailed to purchasing directors. Please verify and update the data that was emailed to you.

13 Professional Development Course Development Florida Contract Manager and Negotiator courses will be pilot and beta tested from August through October. Both courses are designed using a blended learning concept to reduce the amount of time staff is away from their office. The courses each consist of online modules to be completed prior to the course and a two-day face-to-face classroom course. To successfully complete the Florida Contract Manager and Florida Contract Negotiator courses, students must pass an end of course examination covering the content in both the online modules and classroom course. 13

14 Professional Development Registration There are enough sessions to meet all agency needs, as currently identified on the needs assessment survey, before December 2016. Seats are being allocated based on agency need and the number of sessions to ensure fair representation of all agencies.

Registration will be processed electronically on a quarterly basis. 14
