SWIFT Update August 13, 2020

Enhancements for Electronic Processing of Contract Documents  

 The Office of State Procurement greatly enhanced SWIFT’s Supplier Contract module to help agencies process contract documents electronically.
1. Agencies can now import a contract document created outside of SWIFT and process it for electronic approvals and signatures. These changes allow agencies to take advantage of the signing capabilities available in SWIFT’s version of DocuSign.
2. There are enhancements in SWIFT impacting both imported and system-generated contract documents.

  • Group Signing functionality has been added to allow sending the contract to multiple users where one member of the signing group signs for the group. Currently, this is for Professional/Technical contract documents.
  • There are two different signature processes for DocuSign signatures, such as a PDF for imported contract documents and Word for system-generated contract documents.
  • Agencies can specify which signers can view which attachments are routed with the contract documents.
  • Agencies can now use the Carbon Copy (cc) functionality when routing for eSignatures.
  • There is a streamlined process for Professional/Technical (P/T) contracts for contract documents.
You can find information about other enhancements in the Supplier Contract module in the Overview of Changes in Supplier Contract Module.
