PeopleSoft Financial v9.1 upgrade
As you may know, Procurement Services is involved in the PeopleSoft Financials v9.1 upgrade project at the University. In preparation for the
expected 'go live' date of Tuesday May 1, 2012, there is a need to halt PeopleSoft v8.9, along with Works reimbursement and all web form activity,
from noon on Wednesday April 25th through end of day on Monday April 30th. During that time, we ask that you do not attempt to process the
following three web forms associated with Procurement Services:
- Requisition/Vendor Payment Request
- Requisition/Vendor Payment Amendment Request
- Payment to Individual
The upgrade to the Purchasing and the Accounts Payable PeopleSoft modules will introduce subtle changes to the Req/Vendor Payment Request,
the Amendment Form, and the Payment to Individual web form interface. The revisions will occur during the conversion that is scheduled for May 1, 2012.
The changes include the addition of a category field, the codes for which will be mapped to corresponding account codes. Each category will give the
web form user a description, thereby assisting in the account code selection process and ultimately resulting in more exact and more timely departmental accounting.
Training sessions to introduce campus users to the web form changes have begun. The Procurement office is offering three additional training sessions to campus users regarding these web form revisions on the following dates:
Monday, April 23 3:00 – 4:00
Thursday, April 26 3:00 – 4:00
Thursday, May 3 3:00 – 4:00
All sessions will be held in Room 130 of the General Services Building. If you would like to attend a training session, please call the Procurement office on 831-2161.
Procurement Services is also working on an online tutorial for those end users that prefer this method of training. In the meantime, you can view the new category field with account code mapping by clicking here.
Please reach out to the Procurement group with any questions or concerns. We can be reached at 831-2161 or via email at email@example.com.
