New electronic process for ordering prenumbered receipt books



There is a new electronic process for ordering prenumbered receipt books from the Office of Systems & Procedures.

University Park Prenumbered Receipt Book Orders:



The first step is to process a journal entry in SIMBA using the following information:
1. The debit portion of the entry will be the ordering Business Area cost object type and number and GL #52210100 General Office Expenses Allowable F&A
2. The credit portion of the entry will be IO 5201000200 and GL #52210100 General Office Expenses Allowable F&A

The price per book is $3.00 per book and there is a minimum order of 5 books. Once the journal entry has processed, submit a GURU Support Form request using the following process:

• Click submit

Upon receiving the request, the Office of Systems and Procedures will draw the requested number of University receipt books from inventory and ship to the Financial Officer (or hold for pick-up).
The Office of Systems and Procedures will reply to the original email request acknowledging the order has been shipped and requesting the Financial Officer submit a delivery confirmation email reply upon receipt of shipment indicating the shipment was received in good order.

SubjectAccessing GURU documents with Google Chrome
Verbiage

Accessing GURU documents with Google Chrome


It has been brought to the attention of the Office of Systems & Procedures that fill-and-print forms on GURU created with Adobe Acrobat, do not function appropriately when accessed using Firefox and/or Microsoft Edge. After some research, it has been determined that a work-around is not currently available.


In order to access any of the forms on GURU and have the fill-and-print functionality available, the end-user must access the GURU website using Google Chrome.


If, upon opening a PDF in Google Chrome, the "Fill & Sign in Acrobat" bar does not appear in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, it will be necessary to enable Adobe Acrobat extension on that computer.


Please visit the Enable Adobe Acrobat extension for Google Chrome webpage for instructions to enable individual computers.


Please submit a GURU Technical Support Form for additional assistance.


Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and patience.

SubjectFunctionality of forms when using "Print to PDF" option
Verbiage

Functionality of forms when using "Print to PDF" option



It has been brought to the attention of the Office of Systems & Procedures that the functionality of the “print to pdf” option (clicking the printer icon and select PDF) when a form contains fill-and-print form fields has changed. When a document is saved using the “print to pdf” option, the “fill-and-print” form fields on the saved version are inactive. If you entered information on the web-version, saved the document, and now need to add or modify the information saved, that functionality is unavailable. Also, if you selected “print to pdf” by clicking the printer icon on the web-document page, before entering any information, the document contains the same issue (i.e., unable to add information).



The good news is that the “download” icon (arrow pointing down) option is working appropriately. To create a version in which entering information is possible, complete the following steps:



  1. Open the desired form

  2. Click the arrow pointing down (upper right-hand corner) and download the document

  3. Open the document that you just downloaded

  4. Before entering any information on the form, Click File, “Save As” and rename the downloaded document

  5. Open the renamed version of the form

  6. Complete all information and click “Save”



If you continue to encounter any issues with saving forms, please submit an AskGURU HelpDesk ticket

VerbiageEffective November 20, 2019

Procedure CR2049 Reporting Moving Expense Compensation and the Moving Expenses Support form have been revised to reflect the changes to Policy HR104 Payment for Relocation Expenses and to comply with federal law.

To comply with federal law, all University paid or reimbursed moving expense payments are included in the employee’s gross income as taxable compensation. These payments are subject to payroll tax withholding and are reported to the Internal Revenue Service on the employee’s W-2 at the end of the calendar year.

Administrative areas have the discretion of offering three (3) types of employee expense reimbursement: lump sum payment, reimbursement of actual expenses, or a combination of lump sum and reimbursement. Alternatively, the administrative area may engage Purchasing Services to directly contract the moving services.

Lump sum payment is a one-time, non-recurring payment and no receipts are required. Reimbursed Payments requires the employee to submit itemized receipts to their administrative area documenting the actual expenditures. Receipts are no longer submitted as back-up to the Special Request for Check (SRFC). See Policy HR104 Payment for Relocation Expenses for complete details.
