Outline Acquisition Goals at UWE UWE Acquisitions Configuration Functionality Used Future Enchancements
Acquisition Goals: LMS Specification The system must be a fully integrated multi-site service, in which acquisition processes can be carried out on a wholly or partly site specific basis The system must handle all the routines of ordering, chasing, and receipting monographs, non-book materials, and standing orders by purchase or donation The system should allow notification e.g. to requesters of item arrival by There must be a data repeat facility for a suppliers file The system must claim for items on order via EDI The system must be able to pass authorised invoices electronically to the universities finance systems Suppliers must indicate how they support on-line ordering using established EDI standards.
Acquisitions Goals: UWE Collection Management Policy 70% of book stock & journal stock to be obtained from one or more suppliers in the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC). EDI preferred method of ordering, claiming and invoicing Introduce a uniform approach to Acquisitions across campus.

Functionality: Acquisitions Reports Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Custom reports - EDIFACT Purchase Order (EDIFACTPO) selects orders that are ready but not yet mailed. EDI reports - EDI File Transmission (EDISend) looks for vendors with X12 capability and transmits an ASCII file of orders. [by campus] Acquisitions reports – EDI not made ready.
