6 CR 40: Invoice Reconciliation Accounting Validation  Current Challenge: Currently if a customer is rejecting an IR, all of the accounting must be validated to get the IR in ‘Rejected’ status. Additionally, if a customer is disputing a line item, you also must validate the accounting before continuing. This creates additional work and time to a simple process. Agencies are requesting the following changes: (1) when rejecting an IR, do not require that the accounting be validated, and; (2) when disputing a line item, do not require that the accounting be validated.  Proposed Solution: Changes will be made so that accounting fields are not validated when a line item is disputed. These same changes will also impact the validation logic for a rejected IR (since the reject action disputes all line items). If a customer later selects to cancel a rejection or accept a previously disputed line item, then the accounting fields will required to be valid. 6 Update – CR 40

16 16 Vendor Information Portal (VIP) – Fall 2009 What’s New?  Automated registration for State solicitation tools via new interfaces that enroll the vendor in MFMP tools from one place. The new interface will help increase registration in the future to further competition for all State business. Today, approximately 7,000 vendors are signed up within VBS.  Simplified transaction fee reporting form (PUR 3776): includes features such as auto-calculated fields for transaction fee reporting and improved guidance when entering report information. Time reduced from 45 minutes to 10 minutes on average.  A printer-friendly template will be available providing a consistent look and feel when printing information entered into the application.  New system architecture and technology improves overall system performance, availability, scalability, and maintainability. This includes enhanced capabilities to interface and communicate with other State systems, such as the Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD) system.

17 17 Vendor Information Portal (VIP) What’s Better?  Updated user interface with a more personalized view. The vendor interface will be more user-friendly with streamlined navigation. Vendors now have one- stop access to their registration information, current transaction fee reporting requirements, and agency-provided performance ratings.  Improved navigation and informational tools such as simplified registration instructions and ‘Quick links’ that allows customers to jump to specific areas of the portal.  Improved registration process via a ‘registration wizard.’ Vendors also save time as there are fewer clicks and screens required as part of the registration and account maintenance processes.  Improved commodity code search capability assists vendors in quickly locating commodity codes applicable to their business.
