OSCAR Broadcast Messages:

UPDATE: Forwarding Invoices
Beginning on Monday, November 21, you will no longer have the ability to forward invoices.  
The “Department Approver” step that is available on the Requisition is now also available on the invoice.  If you have been forwarding invoices to have someone else review, you should now use the “Department Approver” field to route the invoice to that person.  This is an optional workflow step.  Please contact procurement_support@lists.rpi.edu if the person you need to route the invoice to is not available as a “Department Approver”.
If you receive an invoice as the “invoice owner” that does not belong to you, please comment out to invoices@lists.rpi.edu with who the invoice should be forwarded to. 
If you are an approver and have an invoice in your “Approval” queue that you do not think you should be an approver on, please “return” the invoice to the invoice owner with a comment.  Instructions for how to return an invoice can be found here.

Training Opportunities:
​vPay Training: Friday, December 9th: 9-10am: Union – Shelnutt Gallery
Procurement Services is pleased to announce that training developed specifically to answer any questions you may have regarding the vPay process is now being offered.  This training will be delivered as a brief presentation/overview followed by a Q&A session all designed to fit within one hour of your time.  

2016 Supplier Showcase!
Thursday, December 1st: 11am-2pm in the Armory.  Visit with over 50 suppliers, enter to win door prizes and enjoy refreshments provided by Sodexo!  More details to follow in Morning Mail, but please contact suppliers@lists.rpi.edu with any immediate questions.

Creative Services review:
Please note that the "Creative Services" special approver checkbox should be selected on a Requisition for the following:

"If your project requires use of Rensselaer’s logo, approval is required by Strategic Communications & External Relations for brand review.  Attach artwork if available.  If artwork is not available at this time, annotate the reason why in the Internal Note.  You will be required to provide the final artwork before the project goes to print. This does not apply to items ordered from the Dupli punch out as the template has been pre-approved."

The description available in OSCAR for this special approver option has been updated to reflect the statement above.  If a Requisition for a project that should have been reviewed by Creative Services reaches Procurement without the proper review, it will be returned to the Requisitioner. Please contact procurement_support@lists.rpi.edu if you have any questions.
