5 Procurement Handbook Part 1 Chapter 3 Responsibilities (4 e) Notification of contract commitments - Contract fully execution - 10 days BMWBO must be notified - Proposed changes to contractual DB participation must be reported to BMWBO Procurement Handbook
6 Less than $50,000 – Program does not apply More than $50,000, but less than $250,000 – Using agency makes responsiveness determination More than $250,000 – BMWBO makes responsiveness determination NOTE: Amounts include any renewals STD-168 – MBE/WBE Subcontractor and Supplier Solicitation and Commitment Form STD-168
7 Determining Responsiveness Presumed responsive if minimum participation levels are met (5% MBE 3%WBE) If MPLs are not met, an evaluation must be conducted -Is STD-168 included -Properly completed -Has contractor solicited both MBEs and WBEs for all work which they intend to subcontract, and for all supplies/materials required for the job? Has Contractor Certified That No Subcontracting Opportunities Exist, and No Materials Will Be Required (Or Are Already Available)? STD-168
8 Examples of Non-Responsive Bid Submissions STD-168 not submitted, or left blank Contractor solicited only MBE or WBE firms (not both), and did not explain this deficiency Contractor only solicited MBE/WBE firms not currently certified by DGS Contractor received quotes from MBE/WBE subcontractors or suppliers, but did not provide an explanation for not committing to them STD-168
9 Non-Responsive Options Go to next low bidder Rebid Override - Part 1, Chapter 20 STD-168
12 Under Criteria for Selection, section III-4, if any Offeror is non-selected based on the 70% rule, DB must be rescored –Email Narrative –RRP/RFQ Number –Name/s of Offerors –Mr. Stephen Nedimyer, email@example.com@state.pa.us Scoring Update
13 Small Fuel Delivery Program: ITQ Contract for deliveries less than 5000 gal. –This is a contract of convenience. –Qualify suppliers by county. Agencies follow procurement procedures based on low dollar amount. Agencies obtain Small Procurement Policy and obtain quotes from qualified suppliers in county, select best price. –Invoicing Quoted prices firm, less potential for errors. Mandated utility card use for orders under $5000 should remove bulk of past-due payment issues. Materials Contract Updates
14 Road Salt Many Agencies have depended on Penndot for Salt for their locations in the past. Penn Dot has stopped supplying this service in many of their districts. Please make sure your Agency sends BOP a requirement for the upcoming 2009/2010 Winter Season to assure that you have a supply available. Please send requirement to: Joel Shiffler 717-346-8179 firstname.lastname@example.org

31 SRM – BI Reports Data Target: Procurement reports data now includes detailed information that previously was gotten via jump queries Examples: PO detail PO number Line item MWBE indicators Replacement of old reports –Reviewed usage statistics for existing workbooks –Reviewed BW change requests Using new data target made determination on which workbooks needed to be recreated –Consolidated many workbooks into one which provides all data Old workbook vs. new workbook comparisons are in the appendix Overview of Changes
32 SRM – BI Reports Chose workbooks to recreate based upon usage statistics in 2008:
33 SRM – BI Reports Consolidation of reporting roles –Before: Five procurement roles –Now: One procurement role –New Role: YMW:SRM, Procurement Reporting Subfolders for specific kinds of reports Most new reports found in Purchase Orders and Contract subfolders SRM Only reporting will be labeled as such (within the PO folder)
34 SRM – BI Reports User Impact: –All users with items saved as FAVORITES will have to delete and recreate them –Users will have one role mapped to them instead of many –Users will be able to drill to detail without having to jump to another query –Less confusion on which workbook will provide the answer you are looking for –The new workbooks have less restrictions which gives users more flexibility

53 PROCUREMENT ORGANIZATION AND RESPONSIBILITY UNDER THE PROCUREMENT CODE
54 Independent Agency EPO Background: Independent agencies utilizing SRM document type services EPOs. This routes to BOP for approval Issues: 1.BOP does not have authority for service procurements for independent agencies 2. Without a document type = EPO, Treasury will not pay invoices that precede the PO (due to emergency) and lack of evidence of competitive bidding. Options: 1.Independent agencies use standard doc type and indicate emergency situation in approval notes section of PO when >$5K. 2.Continue with current process 3.Long term - Create new EPO doc type for independent agencies Feedback?/Thoughts?
55 Payment Terms Commonwealth Payment Terms have NOT Changed to Net 45 –45 Day Payment should NOT be mentioned as this is NOT Commonwealth Policy Responding to Suppliers Inquiries Relating to Receiving Payment Within the Established Time Periods –Standard Response: The Commonwealth has, and will, continue to make reasonable efforts to pay within time periods established by contract, but payments may be delayed based on the timing of the receipt of Commonwealth Revenue.
56 Payment Terms Legal Requested Elimination of Payment Terms from Purchase Orders Payment Terms should Reflect the Contracts Terms and Conditions –Present Purchase Order States: Payment Terms – Net 30 –Future Requested a System Change to Eliminate the Notice of Payment Terms – Net 30 from Purchase Orders –The Payment Terms – Net 30 is inconsistent with the Payment Terms in the Standard Contract Terms and Conditions
59 Green Procurement Definition –Green or Environmentally Preferable Procurement (EPP) is the selection of products and services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose. Purpose –To advance the protection of the environment and support sustainability by leveraging the purchasing power of the Commonwealth –To increase the purchase of energy efficient, recycled, and less toxic products and services that also reduce waste –To include environmental considerations to the price and performance criteria –To identify and reduce the environmental impact of an organizations activities and maximize resource efficiency Policy –Currently in Legal for review Guidance Document for Commodity Specialists –Environmentally Preferable Product (EPP) Analysis for Commodity Plan –Recommended Contract Language Website in Development Web-based Training (Will become part of certification courses)

72 Procurement Pulse DGS Bureau of Procurement has developed the newsletter Procurement Pulse which will be issued COPA-wide on a quarterly basis First issue of publication will be on 2/2/2009 Topics will include information and updates related to existing/upcoming contracts/solicitations within the Materials & Services Divisions, Quality Assurance, Business Process Improvement Division, and SRM/Core System (status, updates, etc.) To access the Procurement Pulse Newsletter, visit the DGS Procurement website @ www.dgs.state.pa.us\procurement and search within the Agency Dashboard section.www.dgs.state.pa.us\procurement
73 Procure to Pay – Solicitation Risk Recommendation Future Process Going forward, comptroller will make a risk based determination as to when they will participate in the service solicitation process. A form will be required when agencies request DGS delegation as well as for agency delegated procurement. DGS Service Delegation Process – The criteria will be included as part of the current DGS delegation request form and the form will be submitted first to DGS and then from DGS to the comptroller. Agency Service – The form will be sent directly to the comptroller for review and decision. Next Steps DGS and Agency Delegation Form The Form is expected to be implemented on 2/22. DGS/OB will issue a communication as to when the form and process will go into effect and where to submit the form.
75 Procure to Pay – Signature Authority for Invoice Payment Current StateFuture State Per Management Directive 205.4 agency identifies an individual who should be granted the authority to approve invoices for payment. A Signature Authorization form is completed and the form is kept on file with OB, DGS and Treasury for audit purposes. Agency identifies an individual who should be granted the authority to approve invoices for payment. Individual is role mapped to either the Invoice Receiver role or the Invoice Verifier role. No additional forms are required since role mapping will serve as proof of approval authority for Treasury. Role mapping is not based on dollar value so agencies should evaluate the individuals and roles accordingly. The role mapping change applies only to payment of invoices, all other processes remain as-is.
76 Procure to Pay – Goods Receipt Entry Future Process Going forward, entry of a Goods Receipt (GR) will be required prior to processing of a market-based PO invoice or an invoice with multiple account assignments. For these two invoice types, the OB invoice processor will reject an invoice that does not have a GR. The invoice will then route to the Agency PO Line Item Reconciler, who will work with the Goods Receiver to make sure a GR is entered. Upon entry, the Agency PO Line Item Reconciler will accept the invoice and it will then route back to the OB Invoice Processing Unit for review. Rationale Market Priced – Invoices cannot be entered for market priced POs therefore the only method to indicate to the agency that the invoice has arrived is via workflow to the agency. Account Assignments – When a GR is not completed, the invoice processor must calculate the split which is a labor-intensive, time-consuming process only required due to a lack of proper receiving.
77 Procure to Pay – Supporting Documentation Where should supporting documentation be mailed in the future? If documentation is currently required to be attached when submitting your invoice to the Comptroller office for processing, in the future it should be mailed along with the invoice to the appropriate new post office box for pick-up and processing by DOR. If documentation is currently NOT required to be attached when submitting your invoice to the Comptroller office for processing, in the future it should continue to be mailed to the agency for retention and the invoice should be mailed to the appropriate new post office box for pick-up and processing by DOR. Due to the varying requirements for supporting documentation within an agency and/or program area, it would be best for each agency program area to tailor the Non-PO vendor letter to indicate where supporting documentation should be sent.
78 Workflow for Agency Fiscal Review of Shopping Carts Required Actions: The recommendation for fiscal review in shopping carts were received and will be live in production 2/6/09. We will be notifying agency project managers this week that cart changes and role mapping will be ready with an effective date of 2/6/09. These changes will impact all agencies with the exception of Penn Dot with whom we are working for a later date to allow time for training.
79 Process and Technology Development of desktop procedures is currently underway in payable services. Agency procedures are part of this development Cycle 1 integration testing for PO and non-PO invoice processing began in December Cycle 2 integration test scenarios are in development, with testing targeted to begin 2/16 Organization OB Organization changes in review with OA HR New location for Office of Comptroller Operations will be Forum Place Building – 555 Walnut Street Relocation of staff to new facility scheduled for April Communications and Training Starting awareness sessions for OB staff - PO Invoice Processing with OB Document Review and Control (DR&C) Group on 12/17; subsequent meeting scheduled for 1/15 to discuss Non-PO Invoice Processing and Exceptions Processing. Meeting with OB General/Federal/Special Accounting Group scheduled for 1/21 Analyzing results from Finance Transformation Survey (change readiness assessment) to OB staff on 11/21 Planning for Jan/Feb 09 outreach to Non-PO suppliers (invoice requirements, mailing addresses, etc.) and Feb 09 outreach to PO suppliers (new mailing address, rejection procedures, etc.) Development of training materials underway See Appendices A, B, C Overall Project Update
80 Appendix A Procure to Pay – Incorrect Invoice Submissions Upon Go-Live, Wave 1 vendors should send all invoices to DOR for scanning and indexing. There will be separate post office box addresses for PO, Non-PO, Grant and Utility invoices Incorrect ActionResolution Vendor incorrectly sends invoice to Agency or Comptrollers Office Desired Path: Agency or Comptroller identifies whether it is a PO, Non-PO, grant or utility invoice The Agency or Comptroller writes any missing indexing information, if known, on the invoice and sends via interoffice mail to QC Agency or Comptroller emails/mails a form letter to the vendor, reminding them of the new invoice submission address (based on invoice type). This form letter will be provided by the FT project prior to Go-Live QC confirms that it is correctly identified as PO, non-PO, grant or utility and submits to DOR for scanning Alternate Paths: If the indexing information is missing and is not known, the Agency or Comptroller contacts the vendor for the missing information. If the vendor cannot provide the information, the invoice is returned to the vendor along with a form letter. If QC finds that the invoice document is incorrectly identified, it provides the correct invoice type and sends to DOR for scanning Vendor sends a PO invoice to wrong DOR invoice mailing address (Non-PO, Grant or Utility) DOR identifies incorrect submission because a PO number is listed on the invoice. The invoice will be provided to QC QC confirms (approves) that it is a PO invoice and places in DORs PO invoice pile waiting to be scanned. If PO invoice is rejected, then invoice returned to vendor QC emails or mails form letter to vendor reminding them of the correct address
81 Appendix A - Contd Procure to Pay – Incorrect Invoice Submissions Incorrect ActionResolution Vendor sends a Non-PO invoice to wrong DOR invoice mailing address (PO, Grant or Utility) DOR identifies incorrect submission because a location code is listed on the invoice. The invoice will be provided to QC QC confirms (approves) that it is a Non-PO invoice, verifies the location code (and update if needed), and places in DORs Non-PO invoice pile waiting to be scanned. If Non-PO invoice is rejected, then invoice returned to vendor QC emails or mails form letter to vendor reminding them of the correct address Vendor sends a Grant invoice to wrong DOR invoice mailing address (PO, Non- PO or Utility) DOR identifies incorrect submission of Grant invoice based on visual inspection of the invoice. The invoice will be provided to QC QC confirms (approves) that it is a Grant invoice and places in DORs Grant invoice pile waiting to be scanned. If Grant invoice is rejected, then returned to vendor QC emails or mails form letter to vendor reminding them of the correct address Vendor sends a Utility invoice to wrong DOR invoice mailing address (PO, Non- PO or Grant) DOR identifies incorrect submission of Utility invoice based on visual inspection of the invoice. The invoice will be provided to QC QC confirms (approves) that it is a Utility invoice and places in DORs Utility invoice pile waiting to be scanned.

82 Appendix B Education Curriculum Questions & Answers 1.Do agencies need to participate in the Exceptions Processing course? No, as this class is geared toward OB staff. PO and Non-PO exceptions will be covered in agency- specific courses. 2.Suggestion to segment Invoice Processing Overview course into 2 courses – 1 for PO and 1 for Non-PO The Invoice Processing Overview is web-based training, providing a high-level overview of the entire P2P process, and is intended for all OB and agency staff involved in PO and Non-PO invoice processing. 3.Does the Non-PO Invoice Processing course need to include content for both agency receivers and verifiers, since verifiers are only confirming receipt of goods and/or services? Yes, because in some cases agency receivers may also have the verifier role. The plan is to also develop procedure for distribution by the agency to individual who only serve as verifiers. NOTE: Verifiers approve invoices for payment, not just confirm goods received. 4.Will a web-based SRM approver course be developed, given the new requirement to perform fiscal reviews for shopping carts? No, DGS already has appropriate training material developed for approvers in SRM. 5.Will reporting be included in the appropriate FT training courses? Yes 6.Tell me more about the End-User Support/Deployment Team Preparation course We need to establish contacts within OB and agency organizations to log, handle and/or route issues for resolution for approximately the first 90 days following deployment.
