General discussions

  1. Update on Stacks involvement and future RM work: In replacement for Filip Jakobsen the company Stacks will take over the UX work for the Resource Management SIG in the upcoming weeks. Stack provides 4 FTEs. They come from web design for discovery solutions and are a business partner of EBSCO. Kristin Martin will inform the group about the handover when further details are discussed. Maybe a crash course in library acquisitions for the Stacks staff will be useful.
  2. Organizational developments within the FOLIO team:
    1. Filip is taking over UX lead
    2. 6 FTE developers will be joining the project
  3. FOLIO Data Domain Model: The follow up meeting to last week’s joined Meta data & RM-SIG-Meeting will either taking place on the 5/25 or 5/26. Kristin will inform the team via email.
  4. The location setup within FOLIO affects the acquisitions and other SIGs. RM-SIG should review the discussion on discuss: and take a look at the location model:

Review of Invoicing Activities

For Invoicing discussion doc see:

5. “Approved Invoice”:

-       In some cases, the invoice amount needs to be corrected after the money has been payed (wire transfers, currency effects) (simple solution: second invoice with the difference value)

-       Maybe a third invoice status should be integrated: “Provisional” invoice

-       Strong need to control who may apply changes to an invoice

-       The invoice process should be flexible to make the common case as easy as possible, maybe mark complicated invoices before the process; make sure accounting can jump in and make changes to the invoicing process

6. “Managing Fund Transitions”:

-       A more general fund discussion needs to follow

    • There are cases where payments need to be split at the turn of a year
    • Cases, where no encumbrance is needed (simple solution: 0$ invoice)
    • A similar document to the invoicing activities will be set up and the fund discussion will follow the invoicing discussion

7. “Currency Conversion”:

-       Implementation of a Service to update the exchange rates for every PO 1/month

-       Dynamically pull exchange rate when the PO is created and update when user activates the service

-       The currency issue must be part of the fund discussion, too

8. “Credit Card payment”:

-       There needs to be a way to correct “accidents”

9. The work on the invoicing doc will proceed after Stack got involved to avoid discussing the issue twice.
