New! Paperless Submission Process for ProCard/GoCard Statement Reconciliation

We are proud to announce the ProCard and GoCard process has gone completely paperless!

What’s new? 

  • ProCard and GoCard statements are to be signed by the Cardholder and forwarded for review and approval to Approving Official in DocuSign.
  • Cardholders are to save their documentation in two files: (1) the DocuSigned statement and (2) all required itemized receipts and backup documentation.
  • The completed and signed ProCard/GoCard Statement and itemized receipts/backup documentation files are now to be submitted by Cardholder via FTS. Look for the new module “Other”. FTS is now ready to accept February submissions.

The benefits of using this new FTS portal:

  • It is open to all university employees so there is no need to request access to it.
  • Cardholders will no longer scramble to get their reconciliation into the Accts. Payable Office by the deadline (especially timely because we have moved off campus). A confirmation email will be sent to the submitter when a reconciliation submission is completed in the portal.
  • An easy submission process. All the information needed to complete the FTS form can be found in the statement.
  • In an effort to put everything in one place, we have also added PO Change Order Requests and e-Invoices to the new FTS module “Other”.

ProCard/GoCard holders will continue to:

  • Meet Accounts Payable’s timeline for completing the reconciliation.
  • Complete their statement reconciliation in CFS.
  • Organize the itemized receipts and backup documentation in the order transactions appear in the statement.
  • Forward reconciliation to Approving Official for review and DocuSign signature.

To assist users with the new submission process, we have updated the ProCard/GoCard Reconciliation process guide, scheduled additional Finance Open Lab sessions, and prepared a video tutorial on using DocuSign for signatures. If you have any questions, please contact Finance Support at financeconnect@sjsu.edu or 4-1558.

We would like to thank our IT partners, especially Leon Nguyen, for helping us achieve this major milestone in the effort to make all of our business processes paperless.

Resolved – Missing Travel Reimbursements in FTS

Last week we informed the campus of a problem in FTS regarding missing Travel Reimbursements.  The Travel Reimbursements were restored in FTS and issue resolved.

For employees who submitted for approval a new Travel Reimbursement to replace the missing one, please log into FTS to cancel the original reimbursement (the one associated to the Travel Authorization) in order to close the duplicate request. Please forward this message to any staff or faculty you feel should be notified.

If you have any questions or if you are unable to locate a Travel Reimbursement, please contact Finance Support at financeconnect@sjsu.edu or 4-1538. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

Missing Travel Reimbursements in FTS

Users have reported being unable to find Travel Reimbursements in FTS. The missing Travel Reimbursements are ones that have not been submitted for approval by the Traveler and are associated to Travel Authorizations.  We are working to resolve the problem and will update you as soon as we can. We apologize for the inconvenience.
