Poster Board Number: 177
Title: Constant Change in Acquisitions
Objective: To determine the streamlining needs of acquisitions' job duties in an electronic work environment.
Methods: Change is the one constant in the acquisitions department. The retirement of a long-term employee provides the opportunity to evaluate the workflow in the department and more specifically in the duties of that position. It also brings about the possibility of new ideas from a new employee. Cross-training offers the opportunity for a fresh look at the processes of acquisitions' jobs.
Results: The relocation of several of our finance and administration departments resulted in electronic invoices being submitted for payment via email. Also, we now receive electronic licenses that require electronic signatures before being sent back to the vendor representatives. Payment process changes also resulted in vendor specific purchasing cards. A shared folder accessible to all department employees was created, and weekly meetings are held to promote better communication among employees and to track workflow.
Conclusions: The future holds the possibility of more changes in the department for the sake of efficiency.
