MFMP Overview

MyFloridaMarketPlace (MFMP) is the State of Florida’s source of e-procurement (procure to pay) for agency’s purchasing and sourcing.

Started operation July 1, 2003.

One-stop shop for accessing on-line catalogs and information about vendors that provide goods and services to the State.

More Choice: MFMP provides online access to the system’s registered vendors, State Term Contracts, quoting, and sourcing.

Reduced Error Rates: More validation of purchasing and F&A information.

Faster order processing time: By automating the transactions, contracts, and approvals; the time for requisition to payment is reduced.

Reduction in the cost of goods and services:  MFMP allows State Purchasing visibility into agency spending thus giving them better leverage when negotiating State Term Contracts which leads to lower costs for agency customers.

defining an invoice reconciliation
Defining an Invoice Reconciliation
  • An IR is created when MFMP matches an invoice to its purchase order and receipt
  • MFMP handles services differently than commodities
    • MFMP performs a 3 way match for commodities: invoice compared to the order and the receiving report
    • MFMP performs a 2 way match for services: invoice compared to the order
  • Discrepancies or differences are listed on the IR as exceptions
  • All exceptions must be reconciled before the IR can be approved for payment

On Behalf Of (OBO)

Exception Handler

Invoice Manager

DFS Audit (if applicable)


  • Services invoices require the requester to approve the invoice prior to the Exception Handler.
  • By approving the IR, the requester is approving that the services were received.
  • A PO with a “9” series commodity code is an order for services.

Page - 15

Exception Handler

Invoice Manager

DFS Audit (if applicable)


  • Commodity invoices are routed to the Exception Handler (or F&A Gatekeeper) for approval first.
  • OBO’s do not need to approve the invoice prior to approval by the F&A Office.
  • OBO’s approve the payment by documenting the goods were received via the receiving process.

Page - 16

Exception Handler

Normally the first F&A Approver

Responsible for reconciling all exceptions

Ensures that the invoice matches to the terms of the order

Ensures goods were received or services were approved

Ensures that the transaction date is accurate

Invoice Manager

Ensures the invoice should be approved

FLAIR username and password are recorded in FLAIR when the IR is approved

Last agency approver of the invoice

If DFS returns the IR for additional information, the Invoice Manager is added to the approval flow

creating an invoice reconciliation
Creating an Invoice Reconciliation
  • There are two ways to create an IR:
    • Invoice eForm (Agency creation)
      • Using the paper invoice, the invoice is entered into MFMP by the agency
      • A scanned image of the invoice and supporting documentation should be attached to the Invoice eForm
    • Electronic Invoice (Vendor creation)
      • Also known as a PO flip or ASN invoice
      • Vendors have the ability to submit invoices electronically
      • A paper copy of the invoice is not needed

Page - 19

  • Enter an appropriate Title following your agency’s standard titling convention. This field allows numbers, letters, and special characters
  • Supplier Invoice # field can contain a maximum of 30 characters, and becomes part of the IR #. The last 9 digits will be sent to FLAIR and will be recorded on the warrant so the number should reflect the vendor’s invoice. Should a number not be provided please refer to your agency’s practices.

  • Supplier Invoice Date: This is the date of your vendor’s invoice as provided by the vendor

  • You can group items by status, supplier, etc. This can be helpful when prioritizing your work
  • By Clicking the Table Options Menu, you can group, export and Show / Hide fields within your queue
  • NOTE:
  • The IR number is comprised of two parts: the invoice number that was entered on the invoice eForm (eInvoice) and a 6 digit sequence number
  • When referring to the IR, use the sequence number

Page - 39

reconciling an ir2

  • Choose the IR that you are going to work on
  • Any Row can be sorted by clicking on the Header
  • The status of the IR indicates what state the item is in:
  • Approving status means the IR has been reconciled and requires approval
  • Reconciling status means the IR requires reconciliation

Page - 40

Typical Audit Steps

Receive invoice

Compare invoice to terms in contract document

Approve invoice

Key into FLAIR

Verify receiving report/ services were approved

MFMP Audit Steps

  • The IR will pre-audit your invoice against the order and receipt (if a commodity)
  • All exceptions/discrepancies will be displayed and you will be required to reconcile and resolve these
    • Reconciling is “auditing” the invoice
  • By approving the invoice, you are bypassing the requirement to enter the information into FLAIR.

Page - 41

reconciling an ir4
Reconciling an IR
  • Once the IR is created, MFMP will conduct a match against the order, invoice, and receipt (if applicable)
  • The discrepancies will be listed as exceptions
  • Click an Exception to see additional details about the exception

Page - 42

reconciling an ir5
Reconciling an IR

The Exception Details define what the exception is

Notice the Received Quantity Variance between what has been received and what has been invoiced

Page - 43

reconciling an ir6
Reconciling an IR
  • An IR is comprised of 6 components
    • Exceptions: Performs the match and displays the discrepancies
    • Approval Flow: Defines who is required to approve and who has approved
    • Invoice: Details the invoice
    • Order: Offers direct access to the purchase order
    • Receipt: Captures all receiving reports (If PO is for service, this tab will be blank)
    • History: Details and records all activity on the IR

Page - 44

reconciling an ir7
Reconciling an IR

Header Level Exceptions: Exceptions for the entire invoice

  • Amount Variance: The total cost of the invoice is different than the total cost of the purchase order. This variance will occur when you have a partial payment for an order
  • Invoice Reconciliation Already Exists: An Invoice Reconciliation with the same Invoice Number and Supplier already exists. This could be a result of the vendor having already sent an electronic invoice. *This is not a common Exception

Line Item Exceptions: Exceptions for a line

  • Accounting Verification Exception: Every IR will have this exception. Accounting information must be verified before accepting this exception
  • Quantity Variance: The quantity on the invoice line item is different from the quantity left to invoice on the order line item
  • Price Variance: The price on the invoice line item is different from the price on the order line item
  • Received Quantity Variance: The quantity field on the invoice line item is different from the quantity left to invoice on the receipt line item

Page - 45

  • Validate the Transaction Date. This date is used to calculate your prompt payment compliance
  • MFMP selects the date based on the information that is available in the system at the time the IR is generated
  • If the receiving report has not been created, MFMP will not take the received date into consideration
  • View the receipts tab to see when the commodity was received

Page - 46

  • Remember:
  • An IR will escalate if it has been pending in a “CUSTOMER” queue for 10 business days. Items pending a role do not escalate.
