7 FYE Recap Reminders & Topics New Year Processing Mini-Training Integration of Assets with Purchasing PO Agenda

8 8 Successes FYE Recap – PO  We rolled 3 Business Units successfully  DAS with 66 POs  DPW with 371 POs  DEP with 1141 POs  Thank you DAS, DPW and DEP

9 9 Issues FYE Recap – PO  During the Close process we discovered 21 different issues that impacted the closing of POs  Double-encumbering of POs  Some of the issues dealt with overriding match exceptions or receiving, closing requisitions prior to closing POs, and closing POs that had vouchers that were not yet paid

10 10 As we move forward FYE Recap – PO  Agencies should perform a Monthly close for POs  Prepare a Change Order before last payment is made to correctly reflect what is expended against the PO  Don’t force-close a PO, research and fix problems before closing  Work with your AP Units to ensure there are no unpaid vouchers related to a PO prior to closing

11 11 PO Critical Reminders Hot Topics e-Sysco to roll out to more Agencies Alternative for Bundle Package/Need volunteers to test Agency Contracts must be entered in Core Contract ID is a required field New Purchasing Authority is being created for expired contracts when POs did not roll forward New details on budget checking PO Reminders & Hot Topics

12 12 Requisitions - When, Why, and How New Year Processing  Requisitions must be used when creating a commodity purchase that will be placed in your agency’s warehouse  Requisition special request functionality can also be used when creating a purchase for a commodity that is not contained in the item catalog, however if this item is to be placed in your agency’s warehouse, *STOP* ! You will need a catalog management id number for this item for putaway purposes  The e-Procurement module has a more robust search engine to search the item catalog and you have the ability to use a template

13 13 Requisitions - When, Why, and How New Year Processing  e-Procurement requisitions require receiving, a must for Inventory and Assets  Requisitioners/Purchasing Approvers need to become familiar with their Agency’s requirements for identifying/classifying Assets  Use the WLAs and Job Aid titled, “Creating Contracts, Purchase Orders and e-Pro Requisitions in Core-CT”

14 14 Changes for the New Year New Year Processing  Contract Id is a required field  New Translate Value for Expired Contracts (coming soon)  Steps to be taken to have an item loaded to the item master that will be placed in my inventory

15 New Year Processing

16

17 17 POs - When, Why, and How New Year Processing  Online POs should be used when creating a purchase for a service (You have the option to remove receiving is required)  Online POs can also be used when creating a purchase for a commodity, however if this item is to be placed in your agency’s warehouse *STOP*! You will need a catalog management id number for this item for putaway purposes  Receiving is required for all purchases that will be placed in your Agency’s warehouse (Inventory) and for all items that are deemed as an Asset for your agency  Use the WLAs and Job Aid titled, “Creating Contracts, Purchase Orders and e-Pro Requisitions in Core-CT”

18 18 Changes for the New Year Future Year Obligation New Year Processing  Core-CT is developing a new process for identifying and capturing information regarding Future Year Obligations  Only Online POs should be used when using this functionality  Reports are also being developed for your use

19 New Year Processing

21 21 e-Sysco Roll Out New Year Processing  e-Sysco for ordering food is currently being rolled out  MHA was our Pilot Agency for CVH  Expanded in August to include all of MHA and DOC  More roll outs to come

22 22 Contracts - When, Why, and How New Year Processing  Contracts are used to track what the State is purchasing  DAS and DOIT create contracts that can be used by all State agencies or for specific agencies for commodities or services  Contracts are created by agencies for goods/services based on delegated purchase authorities or State Statutes. (These contracts should be restricted for use to only your agency)  Use the WLAs and Job Aid titled, “Creating Contracts, Purchase Orders and e-Pro Requisitions in Core-CT”
