  • The system will now allow for two decimal places to be used in the quantity fields.

August Updates

  • To assist with AP processing, POs will now be going out with the payment terms of “Due Upon Receipt (DUR)” and an updated PO Clause that reads “When Payment Terms are listed as ‘Due Upon Receipt,’ payment shall be considered timely if the payment is mailed, delivered, or transferred within thirty (30) days after receipt of a properly completed invoice, unless the vendor is notified in writing by the agency of a dispute before payment is due.”
  • For Non-Catalog Orders to Enabled Suppliers (i.e. in situations where a catalog for a supplier exists but is currently not visible to your campus), the Distribution Review workflow step will now automatically trigger on POs to that supplier (to ensure the distribution is updated to ‘Email’ from ‘Manual’ by the Buyer).
  • Requester and Purchasing roles will receive an auto-reject notice for change requests against catalog orders shortly after submission. To cancel or change an order, contact the supplier directly. For funding changes, submit a non-salary cost transfer.

July Updates

  • Approvers will receive reminders by email every seven days for pending approvals that require their attention.
  • DP/PIR/ROR form instructions were improved for Requesters.
