EMPLOYEE RESOURCES

MEMFIS: MEMFIS Help was inundated with questions last week when MEMFIS went "live". Questions frequently asked were in regard to notification messages users receive via email, how to forward Excel (ADI) spreadsheets to approvers as attachments, and clarification of Foundation account handling. Responses to these questions as well as previous questions can be located at http://www.uni.edu/vpaf/memfis/faq.htm
------------------------------------------------------------------
STAFF TRAINING GRANT APPLICANTS: Beginning with the Fall semester, all funds for the Staff Training Grant Tuition Reimbursement Program will be awarded on a first-come-first serve basis. When the budgeted amount for each semester has been distributed, no other training grants will be awarded for that semester. You are encouraged to submit your staff training grant applications for Fall, 2001 as soon as possible. If you have additional questions, please call Regina Smith in Human Resources, at 3-2521.
------------------------------------------------------------------
EQUIPMENT CAPITALIZATION: The definition of equipment has been modified as of July 1 for budgeting and accounting purposes. Equipment is now defined as any item of moveable property which has a useful life of two years or more and a unit acquisition cost of $2,000 or more. MEMFIS object cost 04025 (formerly legacy object code 7011) should be used for equipment with an acquisition cost of $2,000 or more, while object code 63110 should be used for equipment with an acquisition cost of less than $2,000. Equipment encumbered at June 30, 2001 with an acquisition cost between $1,000 and $1,999.99 will be converted to object 063110 by Purchasing Dept. staff. If you have questions regarding this change, contact Judy Kuhlmann at 3-3527 or Bryan Segerstrom at 3-3542.
