Planning Items

Business Affairs Report

Ms. Strickland of Systems and Procedures made a presentation on "e-print." This web-based program allows the university to distribute budget reports electronically. Using this approach significantly reduces printing costs and provides budget managers with reports immediately after the end of a monthly budget cycle. E-print is being implemented in only the FRS and HRS areas at this time. Ms. Boyd informed the Council that implementations are being considered in the SIS area.

Mr. Fry introduced Charles Sanders, Director of Purchasing, who informed the Council about the outcome of a Procurement Card program that was used by several departments during this past year. UNCW implemented this program to make the university purchasing process more efficient and to use less paper when purchasing items under $500.00. Ms. Forsythe and Mr. Scott explained the use of the Procurement Card that will be distributed to departments during the coming months. Budget managers must be aware of their fund balances and must make sure that this new process is not being abused. Mr. Jordan commented on the card and the efficiencies that result from its use. He also talked about its limitations.
