Tips and tricks

Tips and Tricks

Expenditure Limit vs. Signature Authority

eVA – expenditure limit routes requisitions automatically to other users

University Financial Procedures – signature authority list shows who has delegate authority to approve or “sign for” expenditures

* An unlimited expenditure limit in eVA does not give the user automatic signature authority

To see who has signature authority: http://www.jmu.edu/financeoffice/signature.shtml


Password expiration rules are getting tighter

Password Expiration – Rules are getting tighter!!!!!

Effective mid-May:

  • eVA Passwords must be between 8 and 16 characters

  • Passwords must contain a number

  • Can not be a password used within the last four resets


Non compliant 1 transaction fee

Non-Compliant 1% Transaction Fee

  • Account Code 154600 will be charged the 1% Transaction Fee for Non-Compliant orders. Non compliant = transaction is not excluded and is not in eVA.

  • Accounts Payable submits copies of Non-Compliant Accounting Vouchers to Procurement for use in self reporting to the state every month.

  • Procurement creates an eVA Non-Compliant report by Org Code for each month and submits to Richmond.

  • Procurement ATVs department for the 1% transaction fee.

  • The 1% transaction fee on $100.00 personal reimbursement accounting vouchers will also be ATV’d back to the department using this account code. This is done by A/P at point accounting voucher is processed.


Preparing for year end

Quick Review – Show Us What You Know!!!!

Who can give me an example of an eVA exclusion?

?


Eva exclusions

eVA Exclusions

  • Exclusions = Descriptions of types of purchases that do not need to be processed through eVA.

  • Master list of exclusions maintained on Procurement’s website.

  • Use an accounting voucher to process payments for excludable items (even if you have completed a DPO).

  • Use the new DPO form (word doc, Procurement Website) if you still need a purchase order for an excludable purchase

Quick Review – Show Us What You Know!!!!

  • What is the code you use when submitting a non-registered vendor (ad-hoc’d) requisition?

?


Adding the r02 code for ad hoc d vendors

Adding the R02 Code For Ad Hoc’d Vendors

  • When you “Ad Hoc” a vendor you should change the PO Category code on the Title Page of the eVA Requisition to R02 (0 = Zero)

  • Procurement no longer needs to be added into the approval flow for Ad Hoc’d vendors, since department personnel will change the coding.

Quick Review – Show Us What You Know!!!!

  • What else makes an ad-hoc vendor requisition “different” from a punch out catalog requisition or a non-catalog requisition?

?


Ad hoc vendor what do i do next

Ad Hoc Vendor – What do I do next?

  • An Ad Hoc Vendor is not registered in the system, so you will not be able to have your PCard selected.

  • An Ad-Hoc’d requisition always has to be mailed or faxed.

  • Once an order is submitted for an Ad Hoc Vendor you will be the last person in the Approval Flow. You will need to Approve the order, and ensure that it gets faxed or mailed to the vendor. You could also order from a vendor’s online site, and just enter the confirming order into eVA.

  • Each time before you Ad Hoc a vendor you should confirm that they have not become an eVA Registered Vendor.

What is very important that I do before I submit a requisition? Hint – we talked about it in tips and tricks!

?


Approval workflow

Approval Workflow

  • On every order, before submitting, you should navigate to the Approval tab to ensure that your required approvers are present in the list. Add them in if necessary.

Quick Review – Show Us What You Know!!!!

Do all orders get sent electronically to vendors? How else are they transmitted?

?


Orders not transmitted electronically

Orders not transmitted electronically

  • Not all vendors accept electronic ordering. You will need to fax a hard copy of your DO to some vendors.

  • The system requires the buyer to “approve” requisitions that are going to be faxed. This is a method of “reminding” you to touch that requisition again!

  • All ad-hoc’d orders will need to be faxed or mailed to vendor.

Where can I go to see where my order is in the system?

?


Checking the status of orders

Checking the Status of Orders

  • Regularly go to the Status link on the Swoosh page to review the status of your orders.

  • If you have orders that are not moving to Ordered status as you believe they should be contact either the eVA Help Desk or someone in Procurement.

Quick Review – Show Us What You Know!!!!

What are commodity codes?

?


Commodity codes

Commodity Codes

  • Text descriptions of what you are buying

  • Where do they come from? Two industry standards – both are used in the eVA system.

  • Are they important? For reporting purposes, yes.

  • Do they have to be exact descriptions? They should closely correspond to what you are ordering.

  • How much time should I spend finding the right commodity code? No more than a few minutes.

Can anyone give an example of when you do a confirming order?

?


Confirming orders

Confirming Orders

  • An order has been placed without using eVA to generate a purchase order. The transaction still needs to be in eVA.

  • Confirming order = confirming the transaction took place by placing it in eVA

  • Comments are important – BE CLEAR that this order has already been completed and should not be duplicated!
