New FAMIS Email Addresses
The A&M System Offices are changing email extensions to @tamus.edu. The conversion began on June 1, 2011 and will end May 31, 2012. This change only affects email addresses for System Office employees.
Please note the change of email addresses for FAMIS and FAMIS Production Services:
In addition, please change any email lists for FAMIS employees from @tamu to @tamus.edu, as well as any documentation that might reference these email addresses.
An online FAQ web page provides additional information about this change: http://www.tamus.edu/offices/bcs/email/
Two New Screens (208 and 211) Added to FAMIS
Screen 208 (Vendor Add/Modify) is used to record SciQuest information for a vendor that is to be pulled and sent to SciQuest through a batch program run by FAMIS Services. Data should not be entered on this screen unless the agency is using the SciQuest application AggieBuy. No information entered on this screen will be passed to SciQuest unless the agency is using AggieBuy.
If a vendor's distribution method is marked "CXML" in FAMIS, the information (except distribution information) will be passed to SciQuest. The additional mail codes can have whatever is needed for the distribution.
Screen 211 (Vendor XREF) provides the ability to link a vendor on one campus to a SciQuest vendor on another campus. The only functions for this screen are add (A) and delete (D).
When a voucher is created from an invoice processed from SciQuest, the Vendor XREF file will be searched to see if the SciQuest vendor from the voucher campus code has been related to a vendor on the campus code where the voucher is being created. If the vendor from the SciQuest invoice is found, the vendor for the campus being processes will be substituted for the original vendor.
Additions to this screen are logged and appear on Screen 201.
New Field on Screens 103 and 203
The "External VID" field has been added to Screens 103 and 203 for the Concur Travel application. It will allow FAMIS to reimburse nonemployees and eliminate the need to assign them UIN numbers. FAMIS will assign this ID to all active vendors. Search for the External Vendor ID is available using the PF2 key on the Vendor field, then using the PF6 key within the pop-up window.
NOTE: Current non-active vendors will not have an External Vendor ID, but when they become active on Screens 143 and 132, a number will be assigned to them. Once the number is assigned, it remains with the vendor permanently.
