New Fiscal Year 19 Purchase Orders

The HuskyBuy Evolution project will add new functionality to the purchasing and payment process and is expected to go-live on July 2, 2018. As a result, the HuskyBuy Support Team will convert all open KFS PO’s.  It is important to note, as with any conversion, purchase orders may come over with limited data.  Now would be a great time to close any of your open PO’s in KFS.

It would be preferable to hold your FY19 purchase requisition entry until July 2nd when our improved HuskyBuy site goes live.

If you determine it is critical for your business needs to create FY19 purchase requisitions in KFS, please follow these instructions.

Reminder: Proper Coding for EHS Restricted Purchases

on behalf of Environmental Health and Safety…

This is a reminder to all Fiscal Officers to use the appropriate Commodity and Object codes for all Restricted Equipment and Restricted Material purchases as follows:

 

EHS Restricted Equipment

Prior to purchasing a restricted item, complete the University’s Equipment Form. Commodity Code 940 must be utilized for all equipment noted below (exception: use 930 for Biological Safety Cabinets or other Clean Air Devices), along with one of the following Restricted Object Codes: 

 

  • 8226 Restricted Equipment >$5,000: Research equipment with a cost of $5,000 or more that is not federally funded. Includes Biological Safety Cabinets, Radiation Producing Equipment, Equipment containing Sealed Radioactive Sources, Lasers, X-Ray producing equipment, Particle Accelerators, Nuclear gauges, non-ventilated fume hoods and Nanoparticle producing equipment. (Effective 7/1/12)

 

  • 8227 Restricted Equipment >$5K Federally Funded: Research equipment with a cost of $5,000 or more purchased with federal funds. Includes Biological Safety Cabinets, Radiation Producing Equipment, Equipment containing Sealed Radioactive Sources, Lasers, X-Ray producing equipment, Particle Accelerators, Nuclear gauges, non-ventilated fume hoods and Nanoparticle producing equipment. The equipment ownership on the purchasing KFS account is “University Title.” (Effective 7/1/12)

 

  • 8228 Restricted Equipment >$5K Federally Owned: Research equipment with a cost of $5,000 or more purchased with federal funds. Includes Biological Safety Cabinets, Radiation Producing Equipment, Equipment containing Sealed Radioactive Sources, Lasers, X-Ray producing equipment, Particle Accelerators, Nuclear gauges, non-ventilated fume hoods and Nanoparticle producing equipment. The equipment ownership on the purchasing KFS account is “Federal Title.” (Effective 7/1/12)

 

  • 8229 Restricted Equipment < $5K Other Owned: Research equipment with a cost of under $5,000 that will not be owned by UConn. Includes Biological Safety Cabinets, Radiation Producing Equipment, Equipment containing Sealed Radioactive Sources, Lasers, X-Ray producing equipment, Particle Accelerators, Nuclear gauges, non-ventilated fume hoods and Nanoparticle producing equipment. (Effective 7/1/12)

NOTE: If an EHS restricted equipment item is purchased through project funds or acquired without utilizing Kuali (e.g. equipment purchased on a Pro-Card, equipment obtained through PI’s own funds, or donated equipment), Fiscal Officers must inform EHS directly of laser or other restricted item purchases so that EHS may follow-up with associated compliance in the laboratories.  If a Grant Fund Restricted or other Object Code is required, the EHS Restricted Commodity Code must still be used as this triggers the notification to EHS in Kuali.  Do not use generic Supply Commodity Codes for these EHS restricted items.

 

EHS Restricted Materials

  • 900 Radioactive Materials with Object Code 6785 Radioactives for: Radioactive material (RAM), radionuclides, radioisotopes, RIA kits, sealed sources, source material. (Effective 7/1/2012). Pre-Authorization/Approval and Additional Training Required for Order Initiator.

Purchase Order Amendment Workflow KFS Enhancement

A new enhancement has been made and released to the UConn KFS environment that will give the Fiscal Officers the opportunity to Approve/Disapprove amendments to Purchase Orders which affect their accounts.
This enhancement will send the amendment to the Fiscal Officers action list, which you may already have seen. Fiscal Officers will be able to review notes, changes and associated support documentation that the Procurement Services team member has initiated. The only changes that the Fiscal Officer will be allowed to make is to the accounting information within the submitted document. The existing rules governing the original PO edoc will remain in place, just as with any other KFS document, where an FO can only change the account to one that they own. If other changes are needed, the FO will need to disapprove the document with a note back to the Purchasing Department as to why it is being disapproved.
Since the Purchase Order Amendment is a new document to the Fiscal Officer, this communication will show what the document looks like and the actions that can be taken by the FO.
