Key Learning Objectives
Legal Contracts
Agreements where two parties agree on standard terms and conditions pursuant to applicable laws, for example a state term contract between a vendor and the State of Florida.
Contract Overview
Legal Contract
Contracts in FACTS
FACTS provides transparency for all two-party agreements such as, contracts and grant awards. Agency customers may also view release/purchase order (PO) information that is tied to contracts in MFMP.
Contract Overview
Legal Contract
MFMP Contracts
Operational documents that support the legal contracts between vendors and the State of Florida. In MFMP, contracts facilitate the operational procure-to-pay processes, which allows customers to track and manage their two- party agreements.
Things to know:
• Define the scope of a purchase
• Manage blanket purchase orders (BPO)
• Document multi-year agreements
• MFMP only routes the contract release to the vendor for release required contracts
• MFMP contracts do not auto-encumber
Funds should be encumbered in the Florida Accounting Information Resource system (FLAIR), then recorded on the MFMP contract request (CR)
MFMP Contracts
• Agency Term Contracts: Agreements between an agency and a vendor
• Interagency Contracts: Agreements between agencies
• Alternate Contract Sources: Federal, state or local government contracts that have been deemed by the Department of Management Services (DMS) as cost- effective
• State Term Contracts: Used by DMS, State Purchasing to track state term contracts
MFMP Contracts
• Owns and manages the contract in MFMP
Note: If someone other than the owner of the contract enters the data into MFMP, they are considered the Preparer
• Approves service invoices
Agency Role
What is an MFMP contract request?
The initial contract information a customer populates in MFMP about the contract. Agencies use the contract request (CR) function to establish and approve the contract (C) in MFMP similar to the way you would use a requisition to establish a PO.
MFMP Contract Request
Allows any order of goods/services from a specific supplier. Select when the contract has a high-level description of products. Example: General maintenance BPO
Allows orders of goods/services by commodity code from a supplier. Select when the contract has similar commodity types. Example: Pharmaceuticals
Choosing the Contract Level
Allows orders of only specific goods/services from a supplier. Select when the contract line items are well-defined. Example: Auto parts or printer leases
MFMP offers three different contract levels (item, commodity, and supplier). Here are some general guidelines on how to choose the appropriate level.
Things to know:
There are several considerations to keep in mind when deciding which contract level to use. Before selecting a level ask the following questions:
How many items are on the contract?
Are the items specific and well- defined?
Does each item have a fixed unit price or rate?
MFMP Contract Level
What is an MFMP contract release?
A release is a request to “release” funds against an MFMP contract. Releases are similar to POs in that customers will need to create a requisition that is tied to a contract; the release is often referred to as a PO.
Note: In order for funds to be released from a contract, the MFMP contract number must be tied to the requisition.
MFMP Contract Releases
Release Required
• Allows direct invoicing from the contract without requiring a specific release
• Select No if releases are not necessary and they can be invoiced directly
• Requires authorized users on the MFMP contract to create releases for all purchases
• Select Yes if the vendor requires a release for each purchase
VSRelease Required No Release Required
In the Common Action section, select the Contract Request link
