Fin: PR Department Manager Role Auto-assigned

Reminder: as of 07/23/12 Department Managers (or specifed alternate) are automatically assigned the M-Pathways role to approve ePro reqs and PO vouchers. Your unit should not be impacted. The M-Pathways procurement workflow process has not changed.

What has changed?
-- How to specify an alternate approver in OARS (optional method)
-- How to change the Department Manager for a Dept ID
-- An automated process now removes/assigns the PR Department Manager role when a change to a Department Manager occurs in M-Pathways.

How do I designate an alternate approver for a Department Manager?
The preferred method is for Department Managers to use the M-Pathways Approval Profile page to specify their alternate approver. See "The Department Manager Role in Procurement" My LINC doc for instructions.
An optional method is to complete a Secondary Security Only request in OARS for the Department Manager. Select the Alternate Workflow Recipient/User options from the Financials menu.

How do I look up a Department Manager for a Dept ID?
Review the Department page in the M-Pathways Financial and Physical Resources system. Navigation is: Set up Financials/Supply Chain - Common Definitions - Design ChartFields - Design Values. Search by Dept ID.

How do I change the Department Manager for my unit?
Submit a Department form to Financial Operations. The form and instructions are located on their web site at: http://www.finance.umich.edu/finops/accounting/chartfields/requesting.

Remember, when you change a Department Manager (or alternate) previous routed transactions are not sent to the new approver. If you need to transfer transactions to another person for approval, contact Accounts Payable at 764-8212.

Financial Aid Disbursement Calendar for Aid Year 2013 Available

The new “Financial Aid Disbursement Calendar for Aid Year 2013” is now available.

Select “2012-2013 Disbursement Calendar” from the bottom of the Financial Aid Forms and Instructions page at: http://www.mais.umich.edu/student/faforms.html

The calendar includes charts for each Disbursement Plan, with the anticipated financial aid disbursement dates for the 2012-2013 academic year. Each date represents the earliest date on which funds can be disbursed. As in the past, the calendar indicates exceptions to award entry deadlines and funds delivery dates.

AWARD ENTRY NOTES:
-- It is important to review the calendar for changes to award entry deadlines, particularly if you enter monthly stipends.
-- If you enter awards for a specific Disbursement ID AFTER the disbursement date has passed, funds will be disbursed on the next weekly cycle.
-- Students will be able to view their anticipated (pending) aid before the actual disbursements occur.
