COVID-19 - IMPORTANT UPDATES & CHANGES

 

Phase 4 Operations begin Sunday, August 1, 2021. As part of Phase 4 implementation, but in recognition that a portion of our employees remain remote, our  Remote Access Plan has been updated to return to pre-pandemic practices while maintaining flexibility. The budget, procurement and accounts payable team continue to review existing business practices to ensure they are aligned with Phase 4 Operations. Our goal is to allow for flexibility while ensuring adherence to Valencia’s policies and procedures.

Phase 4 Operations Highlights: 

  • All PCard limits have been set back to the original $1,000 single limit and $5,000 monthly. Normal purchasing guidelines have been returned and any purchase over $1,000 will need to go through requisition, unless justified.  
  • When purchasing items or making payments on invoices less than $1,000, instead of requesting a Purchase Order, we encourage the use of the PCard.
  • If you need to enter a requisition but don’t have access to Banner, you can now use the Self Service option located in Atlas on the Budget tab. Self Service is web based and only requires an internet connection. Instructions on how to use Self Service. 
  • We continue authorizing the use of residential addresses when needing to order essential items to support employees working remotely. Only items paid for with PCard have this capability. Purchase Orders must continue to be shipped to a Valencia campus. All transactions shipped to a residential address will require written supervisor approval and justification to be attached to the PCard reconciliation.
  • Electronic approval and digital Signatures will be accepted on all forms, invoices and contracts. All forms are now fillable PDFs. 
  • Employees are encouraged to submit invoices immediately following receipt of items to accountspayables@valenciacollege.edu using a digital invoice approval stamp.
  • Travel forms should be submitted as soon as possible to ensure that you receive travel reimbursement in a prompt and efficient manner.
