For more information and a link to the sign up page please see the 4 ProCard Reconciliation & Record Retention Myths & Misconceptions Question Answer If we dont have transactions in a No, printing a blank report is not required. However, users are advised to check with their department internal procedures. No. You are welcome to scan your invoices, but right now you must still keep the original paper.

ProCard advises you to print invoices and attach them to the report for reconciliation. However, from a records management perspective if they are both electronic and you can tie them togetherand there is no paper--you dont have to print. particular month, do we print out the ProCard transaction detail report? Can we scan our paper invoices and then shred the paper? Electronic receipt/invoices from merchants Do we have to print the invoice or can we just save the electronic invoice on our computer/system?

5 ProCard and Records Management All records (both paper and electronic) have a specific amount of time they need to be kept before they can be destroyed. For state budgets, this records retention period can be found at: onschedules/gs/general/uwgs6 For grant/contract budgets it can be found at: onschedules/gs/general/uwgs7 6 Paper v. Electronic Records If you receive an invoice or receipt in paper, it has to stay in paper to meet records retention requirements. It can be scanned, but the paper is still considered your official copy. If you receive an invoice or receipt electronically, you

can keep it electronically and do not need to print. If you have a mixture of paper and electronic records, right now it is best to keep everything in paper to satisfy audit requirements. For your own reference use, you are welcome to scan the paper and refer to the electronic file. 7 NEW EPROCUREMENT SUPPLIERS eBioscience Inc. a manufacturer of antibodies, reagents and cytokines for the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical research community is now available in eProcurement.

Project Increase process standardization & automation Prioritize improvement initiatives by focusing on: 11 procurement process groups 4 finance processes Requires collection of data on: Staffing levels Workloads Transaction volumes Quality indicators Cost drivers Planning started in November 2010 Project completion in late Spring 2011 22 23 Our 1099 database is locked on the i-drive with restricted access to only a few individuals in AP and

in IOM. We're working on adding language to our website advising suppliers not to include their SSN's on their invoices and requesting departments to help us mask sensitive information on invoices before sending to AP. Since December we've been actively working on masking SSN's on "online" invoices and related paperwork. This is a very manual process and we may not always catch that information before sending to scanning.

Here is what AP is doing to mitigate that risk: The Issue: Personal SSNs are often listed on invoices Security Initiative: SSN Update from AP Substitute House Bill 2287 Three components: Transition to 100% post-consumer recycled paper for copiers and printers by December 31, 2009 Develop and implement a paper conservation program with the objective of reducing consumption of white cut-sheet paper by 30% by July 1, 2010 Develop and implement a plan to increase recycling of all paper products and achieve 100% recycling of all copy and print paper by July 1, 2010 24
