PO PROCESS units. All units in the Airgas vehicle database receive level 1 services.

  • WFS issues a Purchase Order# (PO) for each and every repair performed to a unit. In the Airgas database (Transman) a PO# is tied to a Repair Order# (RO). This makes it easy to retrieve a record regardless of which # is referenced.

  • How does a PO get issued/opened?

  • Routine / Preventive Repairs:

  • Airgas manager or driver obtains PO before taking unit in for servicing.

    • Schedules repairs with local vendor

    • Reminds vendor to contact WFS @ 800-350-1555 for authorization over RC limit, to submit an estimate or to advise WFS of repair complications.

    • Gives PO to vendor

  • Servicing vendor has unit and contacts WFS for PO and authorization.

    • WFS advises vendor of Airgas authorization limits and estimate procedures.

  • Breakdown / Unscheduled Repairs:

  • Airgas driver calls 800-350-1555 to advise of breakdown situation

    • WFS opens a “Road Call”

      • WFS coordinates repair finding repairing vendor, tow company etc.

      • Opens a repair order and associated PO for each vendor involved in the repair

  • Airgas manager calls 800-350-1555 to advise of breakdown situation (go to step 3.a)

  • The following is the WFS PO procedure for issuing a PO / opening an RO.

Estimate process
ESTIMATE PROCESS units. All units in the Airgas vehicle database receive level 1 services.

  • All repairs must be authorized in accordance with the Airgas RC approval limits. When a PO is issued the vendor, or Airgas employee, obtaining the PO is advised that the PO is only good for the RC authorization limit (typically $500). The vendor is further instructed that, if the repair is to exceed the RC authorization limit, a written estimate must be submitted to WFS.

  • Estimates can be submitted one of two ways:

  • Via fax: 801-736-8778

  • Via email: [email protected]

  • All estimate procedures are established by Airgas.

  • The following is the WFS Estimate process

Pushback process
PUSHBACK PROCESS units. All units in the Airgas vehicle database receive level 1 services.

When an invoice is submitted to WFS that cannot be processed that invoice is sent back to the vendor to have the problem corrected. This is process is called the “Pushback” process. When the invoice is pushed back it is mailed to the vendor along with a statement sheet detailing what is needed for WFS to process.

Why would an invoice be pushed back to the vendor (what can go wrong)?

  • Invoice not received by WFS

    • It is not uncommon to receive an invoice that has aged 90+ days

  • Invoice sent to, and paid by RC accounts payable department.

    • Most regions have stopped paying all invoices related to rolling stock asset maintenance.

    • WFS can pay for and identify capitalized expenditures

      • Having vendors invoice WFS for some repairs and the RC for others causes confusion, payment delays, and open PO’s

  • Invoice sent to WFS without DOT required supporting documents

  • Invoice sent to WFS with no PO or an invalid PO.

    • Units are checked for open PO’s as part of the PO issuing process, but it is still possible to open a duplicate PO

  • Invoice sent to WFS no total or illegible total

  • Invoice sent to WFS with parts and labor lumped together

    • Parts and labor must be separated to report accurate repair cost

  • Invoice sent to WFS with total that did not match estimated or authorized amount

  • Invoice or supporting documents have an invalid or missing meter reading

    • Odometer / hour meter readings are required for accurate cost reporting as well as to adhere to preventive maintenance interval schedules
