One time vendor check

    Hello,
    How do you handle one time vendor checks that need to be issued? Currently we are setting up a new vendor every time a check needs to be issued. I was wondering if there is a better way in GP to handle this. Thanks!

    Hi @Kelly Marinoff,

    If you mark a vendor Temporary what does the system do with it at the end of the year? We have our employees marked Temporary currently but we don't want them to be deleted from GP at the end of the year.​ Thanks!

    @Amber Schmoll, not to worry :-) GP won't automatically delete the vendors at year-end. The difference with temporary vendors, compared to normal/"active" vendors, is that you can delete a temporary vendor even if there is history associated with it. As long as they do not have a current balance, 1099 balance, and no open PO's, they can be deleted.

    Again the system won't automatically do this for you so you would still have to take the action to delete the vendor.

    Hope that helps!

    Hello Amber,

     

    If you repeatedly have one time vendor purchases, I would encourage you to work with Purchasing to set up a P-Card policy.  This utilizes a credit card (Purchasing Credit Card) and establishes a dollar limit, process/procedure, and audit trail.

     

    Quick online / Google search will provide corporate level examples outlining multiple programs that will work with several ERP systems.  End users place requisitions and Purchasing utilizes the P-Card for the transaction, providing a less cumbersome process.  We call this streamlining P to P (Procure to Pay), eliminating several steps outlined in the link previously provided.

     

    Let me know if you would like any additional information.

     

    Kevin
