Cellular Telephones It is the responsibility of the A/P Technician to acquire new cellular service for Facilities Management personnel. Cellular service is obtained and billed through VITA however there are exceptions. The following accounts are billed directly from Verizon Wireless: 1.

Associate Vice President for Facilities Management

2. Fire Maintenance (2 accounts) 3. Housekeeping (one account/two numbers) 4. HVAC (one account/one number) On Call Telephone 5.

Environmental Health & Safety (2 accounts/four numbers) These invoices will come directly from Verizon Wireless and are processed as Invoices for Services, i.e. they

will require a signature prior to processing. All other departmental cell phones are billed through Information Technology and charged directly to the index provided when service was initiated. Copies of these charges go directly to the Accounting Supervisor. What Do You Need To Order New Cellular Telephone Service When new cellular service is requested, a material requisition must accompany that request.

This

requisition must contain: 1.

A signature from the requestor’s supervisor

2. A work order number 3. Type of service requested (i.e. how many minutes, local or nationwide, data or voice only) 4. Type of phone The A/P Technician has access to the available cellular telephones and their cost. Once the material requisition is received, the technician will obtain approval from the Department Head prior to ordering. Ordering New Cellular Telephones Once you have a material requisition and Department Head approval, you can now proceed with ordering the cellular telephone service. To do so, an email is sent to the designated individual in Procurement with the following information: 1.

Who is receiving the new telephone and service

2. The type of service and preferred provider 3. Type of telephone 4. What index to charge for this service (and telephone if there is a cost associated with acquiring it) 5.

Delivery instructions – all phones should be delivered to the A/P Technician.

Receiving the New Cellular Telephone The following steps are taken when the new telephone is received to prepare for the requestor: 6


1.

Sign for and accept the telephone

2. Install the battery 3. Write the name of the individual receiving the telephone on the ordering paperwork included with the telephone and file this in the Verizon Wireless file located in the rolling file. 4. The FedEx return label included with the telephone is given to Personnel to be filed in the requestors employee file. 5.

Notify Procurement of receipt of the telephone and provide them with the telephone number.

6. Notify Work Control and Personnel of the new telephone number. 7. Write the telephone number (located on the ordering paperwork included with the telephone) on the outside of the box. 8. Notify the requestor that the telephone is ready for pick up and activate the new telephone as per the instructions included with the telephone. It is important to note that if this is an upgrade or a replacement that service to their old phone will be discontinued so be sure to tell the requestor this. They will still be able to see the information on the telephone but will be unable to make and receive calls. If they wish to wait on activation, you will need to hold the phone until they are ready to do so. Cellular Upgrades and Replacements After a period of one year, cellular phones may be upgraded or replaced. Upgrade and replacement telephone dates are verified directly with the Verizon Wireless Federal Account Representative. Our current representative is Elizabeth Mallory (elizabeth.mallory@verizonwireless.com). Once it has been determined that an upgrade is available, follow the same steps as you would when “Ordering New Cellular Telephones”. The exception to this rule would be for the accounts listed above in the introduction to “Cellular Telephones”. Telephones for the above listed accounts are grandfathered and ordered directly with the Verizon Wireless Representative. The Representative will provide you with a list of available telephones. To order, simply send an email to the Representative with the same details as provided to Procurement with the exception of who is receiving the telephone and the index to charge. That information is not required by Verizon Wireless. Once the new telephone is received, follow the same steps as “Receiving the New Cellular Telephone”. The old telephone is taken to surplus with a completed surplus document (an example of this document is located with Sample Documents). Complete as indicated and give this document to the individual receiving the new telephone. They will need to complete the highlighted areas of the document and take this along with the telephone to the individual in charge of surplus in Procurement. There is a period of time between receiving your upgraded/replacement telephone and turning in your old telephone allowed to enable them to transfer information. Currently, there is no directive regarding the responsibility of payment for lost or damaged telephones.

FAMIS Currently the Facilities Management Department uses an Oracle Database System called FAMIS for the work order system. While the A/P Technician’s main processes do not take place in this program, there are instances when this program is utilized. This section will cover the basics but does not go into detail about all the processes available in FAMIS. It is written with the assumption that the individual utilizing this information has had some training with Work Control to learn the basics of the program, the menus and how they function as a whole. Cost Summaries Cost summaries allow you to view all the charges that have been applied to the work order. You can view historical data on labor, invoices and materials. In addition to this, it allows you to view what purchase orders have been created against this work order. This screen is helpful when researching billing information for other departments.

To view a cost summary: 1.

Query the cost summary form (click ? or F7)

2. Enter the work order number you would like to view 3. Click the green light at the top of the document or F8 4. You are now able to view information by clicking the tabs located across the top of the table Miscellaneous Charges The miscellaneous charge screen allows you to charge for items that are not paid through a purchase order, i.e. credit cards or travel expenses. These charges are input so they may be recovered. This is also a tool to correct posting errors already recovered. To process a miscellaneous charge: 1.

Enter charge type (12/13/15/22) where indicated

2. Enter work order number where indicated 3. Enter the dollar amount in the quantity section (Qty) 4. Enter Vendor name, the IF number and/or any notes relating to this charge in the comments section 5.

Click save

6. Click accounts in the upper right hand corner 7. Click accounts above table 8. Enter “W” in Chart of Accounts (COA) 9. Enter the index number you are recovering to 10. Enter the account number you are recovering to (1299/1399/1599/2299) 11. Enter dollar amount (debits are entered as is – credits are preceded with a minus (-) key 12. Click save

Purchase Orders in FAMIS Purchase orders are fed from Banner into FAMIS for the purpose of recovering the funds back into the Revolving account. The approximate turnaround time for these orders to feed into FAMIS from inception is three (3) days. To view a purchase order in FAMIS: 1.

Query the purchase order form (click ? or F7)

2. Enter the purchase order number you would like to view 3. Click the green light at the top of the document or F8 4. You are now able to view information by clicking the tabs located across the top of the table Reviewing Purchase Order Errors There is an occasion when purchase orders will not feed into FAMI S correctly. These purchase orders will show up on an Error form when this happens. Examples of purchase orders that do not feed correctly would be purchase orders that were created using only an index and account number, incorrect work order numbers or incorrect part numbers. In the event this happens: 1.

Open Review Banner Info

2. Click the Query button 3. Review the list of errors to determine what exactly caused these purchase orders to show up 4. For purchase orders that were created with just an index and account number, click on the little white box in the “DEL� column. Click the Revalidate button. This should take the purchase order off the list by way of deleting it from FAMIS. Because there is no recovery necessary Standing Work Orders There are situations when the same work order is used on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. These are generally reserved for contracted vendors or repetitive duties performed by the trade workers. When this occurs, standing work orders are created and utilized. An example of a vendor that would utilize one of these work orders is for monthly fire extinguisher inspections. Work Orders Work orders are used as a means to recover the funds that have been expended by this department for others. Facilities Management utilizes a work control program (FAMIS) to manage time and resources.

General Accounting The General Accounting Office is located on Mt. Vernon Drive. Facilities Management processed invoices are sent to General Accounting for records maintenance. General Accounting is responsible for processing all travel vouchers. Additionally, General Accounting is also responsible for processing the following:

Create a New Vendor When a new vendor is utilized for goods or services, they must be added into the Banner system prior to the creations of a purchase order or processing payments. To do this, a Create New Vendor document must be completed and forwarded to the Accounts Payable Manager in General Accounting. The A/P Manager is the only individual qualified to input this information. The document is self-explanatory however it is important to remember that a W9 must be attached prior to sending this to General Accounting. Once the form has been completed, the Accounting Supervisor scans a copy for our electronic files and the document is sent to General Accounting via campus inter-office mail. Vendor Change of Name/Address A change in the vendor name and/or address is another function of the General Accounting office. This process is also the responsibility of the Accounts Payable Manager in General Accounting. The document is selfexplanatory. A W9 is required for a company name change however other documentation can be accepted for address changes, i.e. an invoice indicating the new mailing address or a flyer announcing a change of address. A scanned copy is kept on electronic file in the Facilities Management office. W9 Tax Forms The College of William and Mary is required to have a W9 on file for each and every vendor we do business with. If you are adding a new vendor, it is the responsibility of the department to obtain a W9 tax document. The federal W9 or the substitute W9 created by the College are accepted documents. We may obtain this document via email, USPS or via facsimile. The W9 is attached to the appropriate document and forwarded to the Accounts Payable Manager in the General Accounting office. A scanned copy is kept on electronic file in the Facilities Management office.

Invoices Facilities Management is responsible for inputting our own invoices into the Banner system for payment. The following will detail the steps necessary to complete that task. This section will cover the basic process for inputting invoices but does not go into detail about all the processes available in Banner. It is written with the assumption that the individual utilizing this information has taken the required Banner training course to learn the basics of the program, the menus and how they function as a whole. Banner training is required to receive log in information. Preparing Invoices for Payment Invoices are placed into two categories: invoices for goods and invoices for services: Invoices for Goods When an invoice for goods is received, the following steps are taken prior to processing: 1.

Invoices are matched to paperwork using the internal purchase order number assigned by warehouse personnel at the time of order. 10


2. Invoice and receiving paperwork is audited to insure the college is only billed for actual goods received. Invoices are checked to be sure state tax has not been charged. 3. Receiving paperwork should include a date receiving stamp, warehouse personnel initials and whether the order is complete (indicated by using initial C) or incomplete (indicated by using initial IC). 4. Receiving paperwork should have the e-Procurement (eVA) purchase order number, the internal purchase order number and the work order number noted on it. In the event the order was for a stock purchase, the receiving paperwork will indicate the word “stock” or the initial “S” and should also include a red “posted” stamp and the stock receiving number. 5.

The receiving paperwork is then attached to the invoice.

6. Using a blue pen, write the e-Procurement (eVA) purchase order number. Beneath that number, write the work order number (or the word “stock”). This information should be recorded in a clean area on the left side of the invoice. If there isn’t a clean area in this location, any clean area on the invoice will suffice. 7. Using a red pen, circle the amount of the payment. 8. In a clean area beneath where the purchase order and the work order (or the word “stock”) were written, place the “Approved By” date stamp.

Be sure to change the date on the stamp to the

current date. 9. Deliver the invoices in a designated folder to the Director of Business Services for approval. This individual will sign in the “Approved By” stamp area. If the Director of Business Services is not available, deliver the folder to the Associate Vice President of Facilities Management. 10. When the invoices are returned to you, proceed with processing. Invoices for Services When an invoice for services is received, the following steps are taken prior to processing: 1.

Invoices are stamped with the “Goods/Services Received” stamp and held for signatures from the requesting party or the supervisor of the department requesting the service.

2. Once the invoice has been approved with a signature, invoices are matched to purchase orders on file. If the signing party did not date their signature, do so at this time. 3. If a purchase order is not on file, one must be created before the invoice can be processed. Please see the chapter on purchase orders for instructions. 4. The invoice and the purchase order are audited to insure the college is only billed for quoted services. Invoices are checked to be sure state tax has not been charged. 5.

The purchase order is then attached to the invoice.

6. Using a blue pen, write the e-Procurement (eVA) purchase order number. Beneath that number, write the work order number or index number if there is no work order involved. This information should be recorded in a clean area on the left side of the invoice. If there isn’t a clean area in this location, any clean area on the invoice will suffice. 11


7. Using a red pen, circle the amount of the payment. 8. In a clean area beneath where the purchase order and the work order (or index numbers) were written, place the “Approved By” date stamp.

Preparing for a new Fiscal Year st

th

The fiscal year for the College of William and Mary runs from July 1 through June 30 . There are several steps that are taken to prepare for this change each year: 1.

Meet with the Director of Business Services and the Accounting Supervisor to determine when the final processing date will occur and the final payment date to ensure all funds have been recovered successfully. Be sure to allow enough time to avoid prompt pay violations when determining the final processing date.

2. Continue to process the invoices as you normally would except now you will be holding these in st

suspense until July 1 , or until General Accounting notifies you that you can start processing. You can continue to have the Director of Business Services sign off on the invoices but change the date stamp to reflect the first business day in July of the new fiscal year. 3. Prepare a new copy of the ledger sheet. Enter all incoming invoices in preparation for the first input date. 4. Be sure that all new purchase orders are created using the new fiscal year and the new standing work order numbers if applicable. 16


5.

Assist with creating and proofing new standing work orders for the new year if time allows.

Purchase Orders The College of William and Mary has determined that all purchases must be accompanied by a purchase order. Purchase Orders entered into the Virginia e-Procurement site (eVA) create encumbrances which enable departments to effectively manage their budgets. Additionally, the use of Purchase Orders obtained through this site has been mandated by the Governor of Virginia. The Virginia e-Procurement site is interfaced with Banner. Facilities Management utilizes purchase orders for the purchase of goods and services. This section will cover the basic process for purchase orders but does not go into detail about all the processes available in eVA. It is written with the assumption that the individual utilizing this information has taken the required eVA training course to learn the basics of the program, the menus and how they function as a whole. eVA training is required to receive log in information. For information on training, contact Procurement. Information Required to Create a Purchase Order Before a purchase order can be created in the e-Procurement (eVA) site, the following must be obtained: 1.

A contractor’s quote on the College approved document.

2. The quote must contain either a “not to exceed� or final price for the services. 3. The quote must contain a work order. A work order may also be attached. 4. The quote must contain a location. 5.

The quote must have department head approval.

6. The quote must have a vendor name. 7. The quote must be signed by both the requesting party and the contractor. Entering Information Into eVA Once you have a quote, you may proceed with entering the information into eVA. If your purchase order is less than $5,000, once you follow the purchase order to completion, you will receive be able to view and print your purchase order. If the purchase order is over $5,000, Procurement must first approve. Once they have approved, you will be able to view and print the purchase order. What to do after Purchase Order Approval You will have access to a purchase order number once it has been fully approved. Purchase orders can be printed at that time and given to the requestor. Be sure to print a copy for matching with the invoices as well. If you are creating a purchase order from an invoice, note the number on the invoice as you normally would. Additional Information Once you have processed several purchase orders and built up your database in eVA you have the option to copy previous purchase orders when creating new ones for the same vendor. Once you copy a previous purchase order, you simply edit the copy to coincide with your new request. This time saving benefit will come in handy when there are many orders to be completed. 17


Receiving Mail Once the mail has been sorted, invoices are delivered to the Accounts Payable technician. Mail generally is sorted and delivered no later than 11:00 each day. All mail, with the exception of utilities and gasoline invoices, is stamped with the Facilities Management “Received” date stamp. The date stamp is placed in the lower right hand corner in a clean area. When that is not possible, another clean location is found, preferably one that is close to the lower right hand corner. Be sure the date has been changed to the current date. After date stamping, the mail is sorted as follows: 1.

All Invoices and statements will be retained by the Accounts Payable technician for processing.

2.

Utility and gasoline invoices are delivered to the Accounting Supervisor for processing.

3.

Credit card invoices, statements and receipts are delivered to the Billing and Recovery Technician for processing.

4.

Mail for other areas in Facilities Management is to be placed in the appropriate mail boxes located in the Work Control area.

5.

Mail for other departments on campus should be placed in an interoffice envelope, the name of the department noted on the outside and the envelope placed in the “outside mail” box located in the Work Control area.

Once the sorting process is complete, the invoice will need to be separated into two categories. categories are invoices for goods and invoices for services.

These

Invoices for goods are for items typically purchased through the Facilities Management Warehouse. These invoices will need to be matched up with receiving paperwork obtained from the warehouse. Invoices for services are typically performed by outside vendors for the College of William and Mary. Examples of these services are listed below: 1. 2. 3.

Repairs and maintenance on college owned equipment Landscaping Delivery of goods used by campus employees, i.e. bottle water delivery

Invoices for services require a signature before it can be processed. These invoices will be stamped with the “Goods and Services Received” for Facilities Management stamp in a clean area on the invoice. The requesting party or supervisor of the area will have to sign and date this invoice before processing can begin. Once the invoices have been sorted and dated, they can be readied for processing.

18


Receiving Paperwork from the Warehouse All goods and materials utilized by the Facilities Management Department should be ordered through the warehouse. After an order has been received by the warehouse personnel, the receiving paperwork is processed and forwarded to the A/P Technician for use in processing the invoice. The paperwork is filed by vendor name in alphabetical file located at the technician’s desk. Receiving paperwork should include a date receiving stamp, warehouse personnel initials and whether the order is complete (indicated by using initial C) or incomplete (indicated by using initial IC). It should also have the e-Procurement purchase order number (eVA), the internal purchase order number and the work order number noted on it. In the event the order was for a stock purchase, the receiving paperwork will indicate the word “stock” or the initial “S” and should also include a red “posted” stamp and the stock receiving number.

Travel It is the responsibility of the A/P Technician to ensure that individuals within the Facilities Management Department traveling on official business for the College of William and Mary are familiar with the Commonwealth of Virginia Travel Guidelines and receive reimbursement consistent with the same. As per Facilities Management Directive 100, all individuals traveling for the Facilities Management Department must contact the A/P Technician prior to any travel arrangements being made. It is the responsibility of the Technician to inform all travelers of what processes to follow to ensure a full reimbursement for the traveler. It is not the Technician’s responsibility to arrange for airline tickets, rental cars or hotel accommodations; all travel arrangements are the responsibility of the traveler. While this section will cover the basics of travel for Facilities Management personnel, it is advisable for the A/P Technician to become familiar with the State Travel Regulations (Topic 20335). These regulations can be found on the official Commonwealth of Virginia web site at: http://www.doa.virginia.gov/Admin_Services/CAPP/CAPP_Topics/20335.pdf . What to do before they leave The traveler must meet with the A/P Technician prior to any travel arrangements being made. The traveler will need to have an idea of cost for their hotel room prior to this meeting. To ensure compliance, the technician needs to provide the traveler with the following information and/or documents: 1.

Information on the allowable rates for hotel rooms and daily Per Diem for miscellaneous and incidental expenses.

2. Create a travel authorization form for the traveler based on the guidelines outlined in the State Travel Regulations. 3. If the hotel the traveler planned on staying at is higher than the allowable rate, you are able to exceed that by up to 50% by completing the bottom portion of the Travel Authorization form. This requires the approval of the Vice President of Administration. 4. Determine if the traveler will require a cash advance and complete as needed. 5.

If the traveler is driving, a trip calculation must be completed to determine if a rental car will be required. If a rental car is required, provide the traveler with the account code so the bill can be sent directly to Facilities Management. As of this time, all travelers are required to obtain their rental cars through Enterprise.

6. The traveler and the Associate Vice President of Facilities Management must sign this document. If the Vice President of Administration’s signature is required, forward this document to their office after obtaining all other signatures. Once they have signed, the document will be returned to you. 7. If a travel advance is required, forward this document to the Bursar’s office for approval and processing. Travel advances are available two (2) days prior to travel. Maintain a hard copy of this document in your travel file. Instruct the traveler to provide the travel advance voucher they receive with their check to you when they receive it and keep that with your copy of the Travel Authorization. 8. In the event a travel advance is not required, maintain this original copy in your travel file. 9. Instruct the traveler or the rules and regulations regarding travel, what is and isn’t reimbursable and what documentation you will need upon their return. Encourage questions from the traveler. You want to be sure they fully understand what you have told them. What they can and can’t be reimbursed for while they are there The traveler must keep in mind that expenses must be reasonable and necessary.
