A successful Fiscal Year 2022 hard close was implemented last weekend.This accomplishment is due to agency staff working hard to meet deadlines and resolve issues.Thanks to everyone for making the FY2022 close a great success!

EProcurement Module Upgrade this Weekend

When you sign into the EProcurement module on Monday morning, August 29, you’ll notice an upgraded system. Due to the upgrade, SWIFT will be unavailable Sunday, August 28, at 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Quick Reference Guides and SWIFT Help in the EProcurement Module

One of the changes is how to access the quick reference guides (QRG) and the SWIFT Help Desk information. There are two different ways to get this information depending on where you are in the EProcurement module.

1. Use the Actions icon from the global menu in the Requisition Defaults or Manage Requisitions pages.

When you are inside of the Requisition Defaults or Manage Requisitions page, the global header is different from other modules.

  • The global header contains the same options as other module pages, but the SWIFT Help Desk and QRGs are accessed in the Actions menu. The Actions icon has three dots.
  • Once you select the Actions icon, SWIFT brings you to the Actions menu with three new options at the top of the list.

Accessing the quick reference guides from the Actions icon

  • eProcurement Homepage. The eProcurement Homepage serves as navigation to the EProcurement page with the tiles.
  • Create Requisition/Manage Requisitions: If you are in the Create Requisitions page, this option brings you to the Manage Requisitions page. If you are in the Manage Requisitions page, this option brings you to the Create Requisition page.
  • eProcurement QRGs: This option brings you to the eProcurement QRGs page in a separate window. It defaults to the SWIFT Help Desk page.
    • On the left menu of the SWIFT Help Desk page, open the Requisitions section to see the QRGs for EProcurement.
    • Use the Procurement Guides section to find reference guides across procurement modules such as Category Codes.
    • When you are done, close the EProcurement QRGs window from your browser. Use the X icon in the browser tab.

Closing quick reference guides

Use the Need Help? button when you are in the Requisitions Workcenter.

If you are in the Requisitions Workcenter, you’ll find the Need Help? button on the top right of the page.

Quick reference guides from the WorkCenter

IMPORTANT! Follow the steps from the updated EProcurement/Requisitions quick reference guides to process requisitions. The updated QRGs will be available on August 29, inside of the module and on SWIFT’s Training & Support webpages.
