                                        LESSON 1 – CONVERTING REQUISITION TO A PURCHASE ORDER

Step 1: Purchase Order Assignment Form [FPAPOAS] (revised 01/22/04)

This form is necessary to assign a purchase order number to a requisition. All requisitions will be
automatically routed to a campus buyer code. One person at a time [at each campus] will function as the
“Campus Buyer”. The main responsibility of the campus buyer will be to assign purchase order
numbers to requisitions. The same person may also have the responsibility of reviewing, completing
and approving purchase orders.

   1. The campus buyer will log onto Banner and access the Purchase order assignment form
      [FPAPOAS]
   2. Enter their campus buyer code (UNH, KSC, or PSC)
   3. Perform next block
   4. A listing of completed and approved requisitions will be displayed. Use the scroll bar to view all
      requisitions or “fetch next set” from the query menu, if necessary.
   5. Requisitions can be reviewed prior to assigning the purchase order number by choosing query
      requisition from the options menu.
   6. At UNH & PSC - Assign the same number as the requisition for the purchase order, except use
      “P” as the first character instead of “R”; at KSC use “NEXT” for a system generated purchase
      order number
          o Prior to February 3, 2004, at UNH, OSR will enter subcontract requisitions without an
              “R” and begin with “ZZZ”. In this case, still assign a “P” as the first character.
          o Beginning February 3, 2004, OSR will enter subcontract requisitions using one “Z”, 2-
              digit fiscal year and then a sequential number (ex. Z040001). In this case, still assign a
              “P” as the first character.
   7. When all PO#‟s are assigned, choose save
      a. Print the screen(s) to have a listing of purchase order numbers which will be needed to input
          the purchase order number in FPAPURR
      b. Exit the form

    Note: A query can be entered after entering the campus buyer code and performing a next block
     to query for a specific requisition number.




                                                                                                    Page 3

     process. If the purchase order was cancelled for the purpose of re-doing the purchase order, then
     start at Lesson 1 to assign the same requisition another purchase order number. Otherwise, see
     Module 4 – Lesson 2 Canceling a Requisition. Purchasing should cancel the requisition in this
     situation to avoid another PO number being assigned.

                                  LESSON 3 – CANCEL OR CLOSE/OPEN PURCHASE ORDER/REQUISITION

(revised 10/03/03)

Close a PO Document or Commodity – Use when a purchase order or commodity has been
fully/partially liquidated by invoices, but a final payment indicator was not specified. Also use when a
PO is no longer needed to relieve any encumbrance or when a commodity line has been added to a PO in
error.

      Closing PO Document – Close all commodity lines and enter the current encumbrance amount
       for each FOAPAL line
      Closing PO Commodity - If no invoices have been paid against it, close the commodity line and
       adjust the FOAPAL by the full commodity amount. Otherwise if the commodity line has had
       invoices paid against it, close the commodity line and adjust the FOAPAL if there was a
       remaining balance.

Open a PO Document or Commodity - Use when a purchase order or commodity item has been closed
by a final invoice payment. Check Banner/Webi to see the specific commodity/invoice amount, as
FGIENCD will show the full amount liquidated (invoice amount plus remaining encumbrance balance).
If needed, enter a change order after to increase the PO above the original encumbrance amount.

      Open PO Document - If the invoice was for the full PO amount, open the commodity lines and
       enter $0.00 for each FOAPAL line. This will change the status of the PO to open. Otherwise, if
       the invoice was for a partial amount, the PO can be opened up to the amount that was remaining
       after the final payment was made.
      Open PO Commodity – If the commodity line was only partially liquidated by invoices, open the
       commodity line and adjust the FOAPAL to open for the remaining balance. Otherwise, just open
       the commodity line.

Close a Requisition Document or Commodity – Generally used if a requisition is assigned a purchase
order by item rather than the whole document. A specific item may not need to be ordered and brought
forward to the PO and therefore closed at the requisition level (or if REQ contains a zero dollar
commodity line).

FPAEOCD Instructions
  1. Access the encumbrance open/close form [FPAEOCD]
  2. Enter “Next” to have the system generate a document number
  3. Next block and choose the action you want to perform from the drop-down menu

     perform next block and manually select the item(s) to close or open
  6. (Optional) Check “Change Accounting” if the encumbrance amount need to be changed and
     perform next block; otherwise perform next block
         a. To close - Enter the current encumbered amount or less of the FOAPAL line in the
            “adjust by” column (since the function is to close, the system will perform a decrease of
            the amount entered).
         b. To open – Review the last invoice processed to verify actual invoice amount. Enter
            either $0.00 if PO was fully liquidated by invoices or the amount that was remaining
            (cannot open for more than the original encumbered amount – use a change order)
  7. Choose “Complete” from the options menu

                                                                                                   Page 22

(revised 11/20/01)

Clauses will be maintained by all campus purchasing offices. All purchasing offices will be notified
prior to creating a new clause or changing an existing clause. Clauses are pre-defined text that can be
inserted into a document in addition to document and item text. Generally, clauses will be used as
document text. Multiple clauses can be used on a document. Clauses will be created when a campus
purchasing office determines there is a consistent need for standard text on purchase orders. If the new
clause would be beneficial for all purchasing offices, then it will be created so it is applicable to all
campuses. The clause code field is 8 characters and the amount of text is unlimited. Assign a new
clause code by using alpha characters that attempt to describe the purpose of the clause.

Example:

Code:                 INSURANC
Pre-defined text:     Prior to entry on the premises to begin work, the campus purchasing office must
                      be in receipt of a current Certificate of Insurance.

(revised 12/18/01)

USNH Purchasing will maintain buyer codes. Each campus will have a “campus buyer” code (UNH,
KSC, PSC) established in Banner, which will be used to route all requisitions to the appropriate campus
purchasing office. Individual buyers at each campus will have a buyer code. The individual buyer code
will be the 1st character of their campus and then a sequential number. Buyers who already had a buyer
code in CUFS will continue to have the same buyer code in Banner. The name of the buyer will always
start with a “U”, “K”, or “P” as a campus indicator for distributed printing purposes. The buyer‟s dollar
delegation will be linked to their buyer code. A buyer with limited dollar delegation will not be able to
complete a purchase order greater than their delegation.

Examples: U2=U – Denise M. Smith; K2=K – James Draper III

Create Buyer Code
   1. Access the Buyer Code Maintenance Form [FTMBUYR]
   2. Use the flashlight to search for the next sequential number to assign
           a. Enter “U%”, “K%” or “P%”

(revised 11/20/01)

USNH Purchasing will maintain discount codes. Purchasing is responsible for communicating to the
Accounts Payable Business Unit, normally through the Purchase Order Document, any specific payment
or discount terms negotiated as part of contracts. Accounts Payable is also responsible for
communicating to purchasing when a new discount code would be beneficial. Discount codes may be:
     Assigned to individual vendors
     Assigned at the initiation of a purchase order
     Indicated when a payment document is entered

 Examples: 01=1% 10 days, net 30; 02=2% 10 days, net 30

(revised 11/20/01)

USNH Purchasing will maintain FOB codes. FOB stands for “Free on Board”. FOB encompasses both
the responsibility for the cost of transportation and the point of title transfer. The phrase FOB ordinarily
determines 1) the place where delivery is required; 2) where the title will pass; and 3) whether the seller
or the buyer is to pay the transportation charges. There are standard delivery terms for a variety of
situation. The different terms define the obligation of the buyer and the seller, such as how expenses of
shipping will be met and where the risk of loss rests during the delivery process. The following are
standard FOB Codes in Banner with a short description and a detailed description:

01    Destination PP &            Title of ownership passes when goods are received at our dock
      Allow                       (Campus). Shipping/ freight charges are the responsibility of the seller.
02    Destination PP & Add        Title of ownership passes when goods are received at our dock
                                  (Campus). Shipping/freight charges are added upon invoicing.
03    Shipping Point PP &         Title of ownership passes at sellers dock and seller pays shipping.
      Allow                       Insurance liability is that of the buyer.
04    Shipping Point PP &         Title of ownership passes at the sellers dock. Shipping charges are
      Add                         prepaid by the seller and added to the invoice. Insurance liability is
                                  that of the buyer.

FOB is not a required field in Banner, but will be required as part of the purchase order process. The
code structure is 2 characters sequential, starting with 01. The code “NA” should be used when
shipping goods is not applicable for the type of purchase request.

(revised 11/20/01)

USNH Purchasing will maintain PO class codes. PO class is used to identify the type of purchase order
beyond the “PO Type” field, which only has values of “Standing or Regular”. The field is one character
and will be alpha or numerical. The code would define the type of purchase order. The field is not
required by Banner, but will be required as part of the purchase order process. By using a PO Class on
all purchase orders, purchasing will be able to generate reports on the various types of purchases.

Examples: B=Bid, C=Contract, I=Independent Contractor

Create PO Class
   1. Access Purchase Order Classification Maintenance Form [FTMPCLS]
   2. Assign an alpha character that attempts to describe the type of PO class or the next alpha
       character available. If all alpha characters have been used, use numbers starting with “0”.
   3. Type a description for the new PO class

(revised 11/20/01)

USNH Purchasing will maintain Unit of Measures. The unit of measure is a required field on the
Banner requisition form [FPAREQN] and Banner purchase order form [FPAPURR]. The unit of
measure is a code in Banner, which represents and further defines the quantity of the commodity
ordered. The code is 3 characters and should attempt to describe the type of unit of measure; otherwise
use an available alpha or numeric combination.

Ship to codes will be maintained by all campus purchasing offices as designated below. Ship to code is
required on the requisition form [FPAREQN] and purchase order form [FPAPURR] to indicate to the
vendor where to ship goods and to whom the request is from. The ship to code will consist of 5
characters. KSC & PSC will use their current mail stop codes as the Banner “ship to” codes, prefaced
with their campus indicator. All others will use sequential numbers prefaced by the campus indicator.

Ship to codes will also be created for non-campus addresses as needed. When requested, each campus
will create a new ship to code using their campus alpha prefix and 4 other alpha characters as the code.

    1st Character of Code    Campus                       Maintained by           Example

Create Ship to Code (revised 06/28/02)
   1. Use flashlight in FTMSHIP or directly access the Ship to Validation Form [FTVSHIP] to search
       on any of the fields to see if a code is already established
       a. For codes created by USNH Purchasing, perform a search on the code to determine what the
           next sequence number should be (Ex. U03% - scroll to see last number used)
   2. Enter the new ship to code using the coding convention as stated above on the Ship to Address
       Maintenance Form [FTMSHIP]
   3. Enter the department name as the 1st line of the address
       a. CLL – always start address with “CLL” (required for 3rd party printing)
       b. KSC – Use the „Keene Central Receiving‟ as the first address line unless the ship to code is
           for delivery to a specific department
       c. PSC – Use „PSC Central Receiving‟ and the departments MSC# as the first address line
           unless the ship to code is for delivery to a specific department
       d. System Offices – always start address with “USNH” (required for 3rd party printing)
       e. UNH – include building name if it will fit
   4. Enter the physical street address ONLY as the 2nd address line

    Information entered in the 3rd address line will not print, but data can be entered to

Create a new vendor record (revised 12/20/01)
      1. Access the Vendor Maintenance Form [FTMVEND]
      2. Use the flashlight to access the Entity Name/ID Search Form [FTIIDEN]
      3. The form will default to search only vendors and the form will be in query mode
      4. Exit to cancel the query mode and perform a roll back and then de-select the check mark for
          vendors and instead, check the box for “All”. This will allow finding a person or business
          that may be in system already, just not flagged as a vendor.
      5. Perform a next block and the form will be in query mode again
      6. Always search by the vendor‟s taxid (SSN/EIN) first.
      7. If not found, search on a unique word in the vendor‟s name using a wildcard (%) before and
          after the unique word
          a. If searching on a word such as “Smith” that is a unique word for the person or business,
              use a “C” or “P” in the “Entity” column to narrow the search results for either
              corporations or persons
      8. If the vendor is not found, exit FTIIDEN to return to FTMVEND and create a new vendor
          record as detailed below.

    Note: Always use the Purchasing Data Entry Standards when entering person and non-person
     records.

                FAIVHIS, & FPIOPOV. **Also inactivate all addresses to prevent the code from
                being used on new documents as there seems to be a glitch where a vendor with only a

                only goods are generally not reportable. If unsure, it‟s better to setup as 1099
                reportable. Note: If a 1099 owner is linked on other vendor records, all
                information entered on this screen will automatically populate other vendor

Additional Information for Creating a New Vendor Record

Sole Proprietor – (revised 09/23/02)

Sole proprietors may be reportable on the New Hires report required by the State of New Hampshire.
For more information, contact USNH Purchasing. The following guidelines must be followed:

Vendor provides goods – Not reportable
    Use EIN or SSN with “AA” for company vendor code
         o Setup owner if using SSN with “AA” – don‟t need to flag as 1099
         o Link to company record
    Vendor type should include “SP, GD” for company
    PO Box is acceptable

Vendor provides services or both goods & services - Reportable
    Use EIN or SSN with “AA” for company
         o Always setup owner and flag as 1099
         o Link to company record
    Vendor type should include “SP, SC or SC & GD” for company
    Always require physical address of the owner or business

Exception for Sole Proprietor (revised 08/29/02)

If a sole proprietor indicates that they do not want a 1099 issued under their personal name/SSN, create
only a business vendor record using their EIN as the vendor id and as the tax id for 1099 purposes.
Enter the owner‟s name and SSN as text. This information still needs to be obtained for the New Hire‟s
reporting requirement for the State of NH.

   Vendor ID      Vendor Name           Tax ID         Owner ID Field       Text
   028738590      John‟s Photography    028738590      Blank                John Smith SSN#
                                                                            002837777

Multiple Business Names Using the Same EIN (Not Sole Proprietor) (revised 11/20/01)

Example: EIN# 024479890 – Vendor 1=Tin Palace; Vendor 2=Red Carpet Flower & Gift Shop

      Create one business vendor record using the full EIN as the vendor id and the others using the
       EIN, but replace the last 2 digits with “AA”, “AB”, etc
          o When needed, link an existing vendor as an owner (1099 reporting purposes)
          o Complete 1099 information if applicable

Foreign Entities (revised 05/20/04)

If a vendor indicates they are foreign on the W-9 or submits a W8, then consider the vendor foreign and
do not code 1099 reportable. If payments are reportable for a foreign vendor, a 1042S will be issued. If
a vendor has a foreign address, but does not indicate they are foreign, assume they are a US Citizen and
if a number is provided as an SSN or EIN, assume it is a US issued taxpayer ID number.


                                                                                                    Page 56
                                                            LESSON 13 – CREATE & MAINTAIN VENDORS
When services are rendered in the United States, USNH must have the appropriate IRS Form W8
with a taxpayer ID number issued by the United States; otherwise verify with the USNH tax expert to
determine if the vendor will be subject to backup withholding.
     Individuals - Contract your campus Travel Coordinator to verify that proper procedure has been
        followed prior to setting up a vendor record. Send the IRS Form W8-ECI (Effectively
        Connected Income). If they are in the process of obtaining an ITIN (International Taxpayer ID
        Number) or SSN or are not required to have an ITIN/SSN, contact USNH Purchasing for a
        vendor ID (interim process as individuals are entered through HUM). When the ITIN or SSN is
        received, change their ID number in FOAIDEN. The ITIN or SSN will be provided on the W8-
        ECI form.
     Businesses - Send the IRS Form W8-BEN. If they are in the process of obtaining an ITIN or
        EIN or are not required to have an ITIN/EIN, use “NEXT” for the vendor ID. When ITIN or
        EIN is received, change the ID number in FOAIDEN. Generally, the ITIN or EIN will be
        provided on the W8-BEN form.

Creating a Vendor Address Record (revised 08/29/02)
    Search for the vendor record as stated above to find the correct vendor id
    Enter query mode in the address section of FTMVEND to search for the next available sequence
       number to assign for a specified address type. In query mode, enter the address type and choose
       “count hits” from the query menu. The number of records will be displayed in the “hint” line.
    Determine if the new address request replaces an existing vendor address or is an additional
       vendor address
          o Replaces existing – Mark old address inactive by checking the box and add a new address
              in FTMVEND (Can also be done in FOAIDEN)

Backup procedures for creating/maintaining vendor records (revised 08/29/02)

      All campuses will provide assistance to each other when needed
           o At KSC and UNH, 2 people will be responsible for creating and maintaining the vendor
               file in Banner
           o At PSC, one person will primarily be responsible for creating and maintaining the vendor
               file in Banner but one other person will have security to FTMVEND/FOAIDEN.
      All persons responsible for the vendor file will routinely create and maintain vendor records (not
       just when someone is on vacation or out of the office) in order to keep up to date regarding any
       changes in procedures or policies.
                                                                                                    Page 57

File Retention – Substitute W9 Form (revised 11/20/01)
     File completed Substitute W9 forms alphabetically by calendar year. Forms can be archived 4
       years after the last payment (1099 can be reviewed 3 years after they were due – always a year
       behind)

Useful web sites for reference (revised 08/29/02)

Other Information (revised 07/26/02)
    A true partnership can never just be a person‟s name & SSN (this would be an informal
       partnership. Create just one vendor record for the person using their SSN. If a request for a
       person‟s name and EIN is requested, and partnership is indicated, contact the person for more
       information on whether there is a name associated with the partnership.
    If business name includes “Inc.” but doesn‟t indicate they are a corporation, assume they are a
       corporation.
    A business can be a corporation, with no employees (individually owned), but all corporations
       must have an EIN.
    An LLC can be either a sole proprietor or corporation. An LLP would be a partnership.

One-Time Vendor (revised 11/20/01)
   Generally, all individuals and companies will have a vendor id.
   In some instances, the use of one-time vendor will be allowed. These include payments for the
      purpose of rebates/refunds, cancelled events, reimbursements to non-employees (one-time), non-
      reporting responsibilities and no on-going relationship.
         o Can only be used on a direct pay document

USNH Students (revised 05/20/02)
   When creating a vendor record for students follow the procedures for individuals with the
     following exceptions:
         o Don‟t indicate 1099 information – it will be flagged when appropriate on the invoice
         o Use campus address or home address – don‟t need to worry about PO Box/physical
            address
         o Choose vendor type for student

Petty Cash (revised 08/29/02)
    Use “PCASH” and next available 4 digits as the vendor id (ex. PCASH0005)
    Use “Petty Cash Custodian – “ and department/account name as the vendor name
    Enter the custodian/employee as the contact person
    Use BU address type and the employee campus address
    Choose vendor type for petty cash

Imprest Checking (revised 03/08/02) – Use Granite Bank Vendor Code
    Use “IMPCHK” and next available 3 digits as the vendor id (ex. IMPCHK012)
    Use “Imprest Checking – “ and department/account name as the vendor name
                                                                                                   Page 58

(revised 11/20/01)

USNH Purchasing will maintain vendor types. Vendor types will be used to classify the type of vendor.
Multiple vendor types can be selected for one vendor. The vendor will generally provide their

     business must also obtain a new EIN. In this case, the vendor record should be terminated and a
     new vendor record created. If necessary to facilitate searching and finding the new vendor, the
     old name can be listed as a previous name on the new vendor record in FOAIDEN.


                                                                                                    Page 64

Procedures (new 11/22/02)

USNH Purchasing will generate the full daily print of all purchase orders each morning. USNH
Purchasing will send email to each campus purchasing office when the print has been started. If a
second full print is needed the same day, any campus purchasing office can initiate the print and should
send email so they know to expect a batch of purchase orders. Each campus purchasing office will
initiate single prints (PO‟s or change orders) when needed.

Any problems experienced with the print process should be reported immediately to the USNH
Purchasing Office by email or phone.

purchase order instead. Using this option, you would not be able to generate a current PO that reflects a
prior change order.

How Bottomline Process Affects the Purchase Order/Change Order Print Process (new 11/22/02)

   If buyer code begins with a K:
    PO is routed to KSC printer
    Keene AP prints as invoice address
    Keene State College prints as college as the 1st line of the ship to code
    KSC Purchasing phone & fax print

   If buyer code begins with a P:
    PO is routed to PSC printer
    Plymouth AP prints as invoice address
    Plymouth State College prints as college as the 1st line of the ship to code
    PSC Purchasing phone & fax print

   If buyer code begins with a U:
    PO is routed to USNH printer (Durham)
    USNH AP prints as invoice address
    USNH Purchasing phone & fax print
    University of New Hampshire prints as college as the 1st line of the ship to code; unless
        address starts with "CLL" - then College for Lifelong Learning will print - Pending
        address starts with "USNH" - then University System of New Hampshire will print

   The following are known exceptions and must be manually changed on the PO:
    Satellite AP offices such as Facilities, Business Affairs - we have labels to put on the PO for AP
      invoice address
    PO's over $25K for KSC/PSC – If the new buyer code (KK or PP) is used, the PO will follow
      the normal procedure above for the appropriate campus, but will have the name of the USNH
      Purchasing Director. Forward the PO by fax to USNH Purchasing for signature and then it will
      be returned to the campus for distribution to the vendor. Otherwise, if the old code (U2) is used,
      this will print information for the buyer code U as stated above. USNH Purchasing will change
      the information as necessary, sign and forward to the appropriate campus for distribution to the
      vendor.


                                                                                                      Page 69
                                       LESSON 16 – PURCHASE ORDER/CHANGE ORDER PRINT PROCESS
      Ship to Code K2102 is for UNH Nursing at KSC and is used by UNH and a UNH buyer
       approves PO's. This causes the college "UNH" to print, but the rest of the address is for KSC
       and should be manually changed.
      The 'attention to' field cuts off 6 characters because "ATTN: " prints automatically and thus takes
       the place of characters a user may type in Banner
      Only 39 characters for vendor name prints although Banner allows up to 60 characters when
       creating a vendor - if you see one that doesn't look good where it's cut off, contact your campus
       purchasing staff member responsible for vendor codes so it can be changed to break more
       appropriately

   The following are additional items currently in place regarding PO printing:
    Suppress the vendor ID
    For standing orders, suppress the UOM
    Suppress "Total taxes"
    Suppress the order date field - can be back dated (generally for confirming orders) - use
      "Confirming-do not duplicate" on PO's to convey this instead
    Insert current date as the date on PO's - the transaction date isn't part of the Banner PO output
      file
    Insert "Total" before the grand total amount

PO Distribution Process After PO Print (Force prints or full prints)
    Review PO‟s for AP labels – review sheet that details what characters in the PO number
      designates a 5th level BSC (does their own AP processing rather than USNH AP)
    Give PO‟s to agents to sign
    When signed, review for fax notations, special instructions, insurance requirements (no bid
      number), etc. If insurance is required and the PO states the vendor needs to send to us, make a
      photocopy of the PO and follow up for receipt in a week.
    Fax or mail the PO‟s as specified.
    Review PO‟s for mailing for a foreign address. If yes, insert in an envelope and put a sticky note
      on the outside of the envelope stating “Extra Postage”, otherwise the PO will be returned to us
      for insufficient postage.

                                   Purchasing Data Entry Standards
(revised 12/14/01)

The purpose of this document is to insure that data is accurately entered into Banner thereby assisting
with the production of suitable mailing materials and readable reports and documents. Therefore, it is
not only essential that these standards be followed to maintain the integrity of the data entered but also
to guarantee that once entered, searched records can be found. (Always perform a detailed search for
name/title and ID variations in the database to insure that a record does not already exist before a new
one is entered.)

Non-Person Names

Use upper and lower case letters. Each word should begin with an upper case letter. [Note: Do not use
upper case for the following unless it is the first word: of, and, the, in, etc.] If the title is an acronym,
enter in all upper case. Use punctuation when it is part of the name. If additional information needs to
be added to a name to facilitate searching, use a hyphen with a space before and after the hyphen. Avoid
abbreviating unless it is necessary due to the length of the field. To facilitate searching, abbreviate non-

Titles/Descriptions in Validation Tables

All of the above rules apply. Examples of validation tables with titles/descriptions include the Ship to
Maintenance Form [FTMSHIP] and PO Class [FTMPCLS].
                                                                                                        Page 72

Person Names

Use upper and lower case letters. Use proper punctuation and capitalization as provided.

      Last Name

       If a last name is provided with the first letter lower case, enter in Banner using upper case. This
       exception is needed to maintain consistency of all words beginning with an upper case letter. If
       a last name contains other upper case letters, enter in Banner as provided.

                 Name Provided                   Enter in Banner
                 d'Angelo                        D'Angelo
                 O‟Conner                        O‟Conner NOT O‟conner

Use a HYPHEN with no spaces for hyphenated last names.

                 Example:                        Webber-Smith

      First Name

       Double first names should be entered entirely in the first name field.
       Use spaces and/or hyphens between the two names as provided.

                 Examples:
                 Mary Jo                   Mary-Jo                 MaryJo

       First names using the first initial and middle name should be entered entirely in the first name
       field, using a period and a space.

                 Example:        R. Maureen

       [Note: In the example above, the addressee would appear as „Dear R. Maureen‟ as appropriate if
       entered as indicated. Entering only the initial, as the first name and the full second name in the
       middle name field would result in “Dear R” when extracting the name for word processing
       purposes. In addition, since most Banner forms display individual‟s names as first name first, for
       viewing accuracy it is important to input what the person considers their first name].

      Middle Names

       If entering only an initial, do NOT use punctuation [Note: Word processing programs will add
       the needed period after the initial].

      Prefixes/Suffixes

       Prefixes and/or suffixes should NOT be coded in the first, middle, or
       last name fields. Use the prefix or suffix field in FOAIDEN to code this data.


                                                                                                      Page 73

       Use proper punctuation and capitalization where applicable.

            Prefix Examples:
            Mr.       Miss          Most Rev.       Fr.        Bro.
            Ms.       Mrs.          Capt.           Dr.        Col.

            Suffix Examples:
            Sr.       III           Ph.D.           D.D.S      C.P.A.
            Jr.       M.D.          Esq.            D.V.M.     R.N.

Addresses (revised 8/29/02)

Use upper and lower case. Avoid using punctuation unless it is necessary.

      Symbols

DO NOT use the pound (#) sign to designate “number” in an address. Use “No.” if you cannot use Apt.,
     RFD, etc. The use of symbols may result in errors or inconsistencies when the data is used in
     other programs.

      PO Box/Physical Address

The physical street address should always be entered on an address line after other address information
such as suite numbers, building name, etc. Create two (2) separate address records if a PO box and
physical address is provided. Two addresses are needed because a PO Box may be located in a different
town or state than the physical address. Acceptable physical address includes Fire or Lot number, RR &
HC numbers.




                                                                                                    Page 74
                                                                 Appendix B – Purchasing Data Entry Standards

Address Types (08/29/02)

PM [permanent address] The PM address type is used for PERSON records to identify the address
where a person can be reached. Generally, this will be the person's 'home' address; for persons doing
business with USNH, it will also serve as the primary contact address.

BU [business address] The BU address is used for PERSON & NON-PERSON vendor records to
identify the primary contact address for a non-person/business entity. Generally will be used for
correspondence and purchase orders.

RM [remit address] The RM address type is used for PERSON & NON-PERSON vendor records to
identify the appropriate address to be used to send payments.

Phone Types

Enter the same value for phone type as used for the address. The following additional phone types are
available when more applicable:

UP (pager number assigned to a USNH provided pager)

VP (pager number of a vendor)

Responsible person/office for address types: (12/11/02)

Campus Purchasing Offices own the BU & RM address types. Purchasing is the only authorized office
to create or change address records using these codes. If purchasing has a need to setup a campus
formatted address, use BU or RM as the code, but use the special zip codes setup for campus mailing
purposes. Purchasing was initially using PM for individuals who were only entered in HUM as vendors.
If purchasing has a change of address in this instance, purchasing should create a BU or RM with the
new address and the new address should be set as the default for PO/AP. The PM address will need to
remain in Banner, as activity would have likely been transacted. The PM address cannot be inactivated
in Banner.

Campus HR owns the CM, PM, CK, W2 address types. HR is the only authorized office to create or
change address records using these codes. If an individual is being setup as a vendor and has any of
these address types, Purchasing needs to contact the appropriate campus HR office to verify the
individuals' status as an employee or student. This is necessary in order to determine if the individual
should be flagged 1099 and who should be maintaining address information. If the person is not a
current employee/student, add text in FTMVEND (ex. 12/10/02-per UNH HR, not currently an
employee. dls). Use "IN" as the vendor type. Otherwise, code as "EM" or "ST" as appropriate.
                                                                                                       Page 75
                                                               Appendix B – Purchasing Data Entry Standards
Purchasing cannot inactive an address record of CM, PM, CK, or W2 address type. If the person is
currently an employee or student and the existing HR address information is incorrect, the change must
be made by HR rather than Purchasing creating a new address using BU or RM. If additional addresses
are needed for other reasons, then Purchasing can create new addresses as needed.

OSR owns the BI address type. OSR is the only authorized office to create or change address records
using this code.

Any office/user can use any existing address record regardless of the address type on transactions or as
defaults when the address itself is correct for their needs. The ownership lies in who can create or
change an address based on the address code. For example, if Purchasing flags an existing company or
person as a vendor who already has a BI or PM address that is valid, Purchasing does not need to create
the same address using a BU or RM address type. The existing address can be used. Any changes must
go through the office that owns the address code.

                                                     Appendix C – Creating & Changing Vendor Codes Procedure

Creating or Changing a Vendor Code

Purpose

USNH recommends that a vendor code be required for all companies or individuals conducting business
with USNH, regardless of the payment amount. Vendor codes are created to gather information about a
company or individual necessary to facilitate purchases and payments (e.g., addresses, contacts,
payment terms, type of business). A vendor code provides the ability to do research, reports, and ensure
compliance for state and federal reporting requirements.

In some instances, a vendor code may not be required. For more information, see Direct Pay Invoice –
No Vendor Code. [link to document]

Vendor codes will be created & maintained by each campus purchasing office. Person records will be
created by HR and loaded into the Banner finance instance through a nightly feed until HR goes live in
July 2003. The campus purchasing office will then mark the person record as a vendor.

All USNH employees (including student employees) will automatically be loaded into Banner through a
nightly feed from HUM until HR goes live in July 2003. Certain employee classifications will be
automatically be tagged and set-up as a vendor. For other employees, an email must be sent to
purchasing to request that an employee be setup as a vendor.

Code Structure

Taxpayer identification number (TIN) will be used as the vendor code. For all persons, this will be a
social security number (SSN). For all companies, this will be an employer identification number (EIN).
Foreign companies may require an auto-generated number and the vendor code and will begin with an
“@” sign. It may be necessary for certain foreign individuals to obtain an individual taxpayer
identification number (ITIN) or SSN in which case this number would be used as the vendor code.
Otherwise, USNH Purchasing will assign a unique tracking number.

Requesting a new vendor code

It is assumed that prior to requesting a vendor code, the user has verified that the purchase could not
have been made using the USNH Pcard or convenience check. Always check the vendor table
(FTIIDEN/FTMVEND) to determine if a vendor code exists.

An email request is acceptable for the following vendor requests:
    Reimbursement to non-employee who will not have an ongoing relationship with USNH (include
      SSN, name and address)
    Adding an address for an existing vendor (include current Banner ID and the address needed)
    Vendor existed in CUFS, but is not in Banner (Include the CUFS vendor code and any changes
      to the information; otherwise purchasing will create the vendor with the information from CUFS)
    Person or company is in Banner, but not flagged as a vendor (include Banner ID and address
      needed)
    USNH Students not already in Banner (include SSN, name and address)



                                                                                                          Page 77
                                                     Appendix C – Creating & Changing Vendor Codes Procedure
The IRS requires that a Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number, be on file for any
company or individual who receives a Form 1099Misc. USNH uses a Substitute W-9 Form to satisfy
this requirement and to solicit the information necessary to establish a vendor code (i.e., small business,
women owned, minority owned, corporations, etc.).

The business unit should access the Substitute W-9 form from the USNH Purchasing web site
[http://www.unh.edu/purchasing/purchforms.html] and complete the “Requester” section. The business
unit then forwards the form to the vendor. The vendor completes the form and returns it as indicated by
the business unit on the form. If received by the business unit, they will forward to the appropriate
campus purchasing office for processing. Purchasing will review the information for accuracy and when
all information is in good order, a vendor code will be created. Purchasing will notify the business unit
when the vendor code has been created.

Request a change to an existing vendor code

Documentation to support all changes to existing vendor codes should be forwarded to the appropriate
campus purchasing office (e.g., invoice, email, letterhead, registration form). Documentation should
include a note regarding the change needed and contact information for the person requesting the
change. The requestor will be notified when the change has been made. Common changes include:
change of address, new address, new contact person, phone/fax numbers, and corrections (spelling, typo,
etc).

Name changes: Contact the appropriate campus purchasing office for assistance with all name changes.
      These types of changes require research to ensure that the business entity is properly represented
      in the vendor file.

(In some instances, a change may require a new Substitute W-9 form be completed)

Substitute W-9 Form

Each campus purchasing office is responsible for maintaining a file copy of the completed Substitute W-
9 form.
