Key Terminology
Key Term
Description
Refers to an automated check conducted before Shopping
Account Availability Check Carts are ordered to verify if the required funds are available at
(AVC)
the Cost Center/Funds Center Level. If funds are not available,
the Shopping Cart cannot be submitted for approval.
Contract Catalog
It is a searchable database of goods and services that can be
sourced from existing Systems/Local Contracts from which
Requisitioners can add items to their Shopping Carts.
ERP Central Component
(ECC)
The main Umoja component comprising various modules.
Goods Receipt
It is a document generated to acknowledge the receipt of
delivered goods.
Low Value Acquisition
(LVA)
It is a Purchase Order (PO) used for requirements not
exceeding $4,000 USD, issued without the direct involvement
of Procurement. This replaces the current Short Form PO and
Direct Expenditure processes. The Low Value Acquisitioner
Role is required to process an LVA.

Key Terminology
Key Term
Material Master
Description
Material Master records contain all the information about the
materials that the UN procures, stores and ships (Product
Categories, Product IDs, etc.). The integration of all
information about a material into a single record eliminates
redundancy and makes it possible to store material data for all
relevant system components in a single, central database. It is
used to populate Shopping Carts, identify the goods required
and is used in many other Supply Chain and Finance processes.
Product Category
Represents the general type of product or material and is part
of the Material or Service Master Record. Product categories
are a subset of United Nations Standard Products and Services
Code (UNSPSC) classifications. A Product Category usually
contains multiple Product IDs.
Product ID
Is the unique, specific ID number of a particular material or
service that is a sub-set of a Product Category. This is identical
to the Material or Service Number fields in ECC and is part of
the Material or Service Master Record. The Product ID is not
derived from the Product Category, but created by the UN
during codification.

Key Terminology
Key Term
Description
RFx
It is a generic term for a Solicitation document. The ‘x’ signifies
that the solicitation document could either be an RFQ , RFP or ITB.
Service Entry Sheet
Similar to a Goods Receipt in purpose, a system document generated
to acknowledge receipt/delivery of services (also known as a Material
Document in Umoja).
Service Master
Shopping Cart
SRM (Supplier
Relationship
Management)
Workflow
Work Overview
Is equivalent to the Material Master, but is for all services procured
by UN. Service Master Records are also stored in the same central
database as Material Master records.
It is a term used in Umoja SRM for what is currently referred to as a
Purchase Requisition.
It is a Web-based Umoja application used specifically for
procurement and requisitioning activities.
It refers to Shopping Carts, or other financial/procurement
documents, being automatically routed to the appropriate
person(s) for review and approval.
It is the screen in Umoja SRM that lists all the tasks that require
action by the User such as approvals (Approver) or required
revisions to Shopping Carts (Requisitioner).

•
Similar to the current business practice, a Requisitioner should always determine if the required
material/goods are already available, locally, in their Plant's inventory/stock prior to
commencing a procurement activity (i.e. raising a Shopping Cart which was previously referred
to as a ‘Purchase Requisition’)
•
In Umoja, the Requisitioner can run a Stock Availability Report (Stock Overview) in ECC (T-Code:
ZLE_STCK_OVRVW) to verify the availability of a material at their Plant, on the required date.
Additional policies and/or guidance maybe issued in this respect by the responsible authority
•
If the material is available at their Plant, the Requisitioner can create and submit for approval a
Reservation to request issuance of the material from stock . More information on the steps to
create a Reservation is available in the Logistics Job Aid How to Create, Certify and Approve
Reservations for Inventory and in the Umoja Local Inventory Goods Movement course
•
If local stock is not available, the Requisitioner can then raise a Shopping Cart to commence
procurement action
Copyright © United Nations
Requisitioning - Material and Service Masters
With the introduction of the integrated Master Data, the supply chain process will be
more streamlined and effective:
•
Shopping Carts are created identifying the required goods/services by selecting the
appropriate Product Category and a Product ID for each item. Umoja offers the
ability to search these in the system while creating the Shopping Cart.
•
For example, an ‘All-in-One Desktop Computer’ would be identified in Umoja as:
Product Category: 43211501 (Desktop Computer) with
Product ID: 1500010454 (Computer All in One)
•
Product Categories represents the general type of product/service and based on the
United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) classifications. A
Product Category is usually linked to multiple Product IDs.
•
The Product IDs define the requirement in more detail. It is a unique, specific ID
number for a particular material or service and is a sub-set of the Product Category.
The Product ID is not from the UNSPSC but is created by the UN during codification.
Copyright © United Nations
15
Requisitioning – Material and Service Masters
•
Each item should include a Product Category AND a Product ID
•
Product IDs are required/mandatory for downstream functions such as ‘inventory’
•
Product Categories/IDs are created and centrally maintained in the
Material/Service Master by the Material Master Data Team and are typically
linked to each other
•
The Material Master Data Team has worked closely with the ‘Business’ to create
Product Categories/IDs for almost everything we require
•
However, due to the cost associated with maintaining the Masters there are some
isolated cases where there may be: a Product Category and only a generic Product
ID i.e. Spare Parts
•
For any questions/assistance in selecting the appropriate Product Categories/IDs
contact the Material Master Data Team: [email protected]

16
Material and Service Master Data
The Material and Service Master Records are new Master Data objects within the UN.
Identifying a product/service using the Material or Service Master record enables faster
processing of Shopping Carts through Procurement and are required for downstream
processes (for example Goods Receipt, inventory) and reporting.

Re-occurring requirements with no existing contract:
• This involves a 2 step process: an Unfunded Contract is solicited and awarded/published (Contract
Catalog Items); Funded Shopping Carts are created ‘as and when required’ to procure goods/services
or to fund contracts
• Step 1 – Create Unfunded Contract/Contract Catalog Items:
a. the Requisitioner creates an Unfunded Shopping Cart with an estimated ‘Not to Exceed’ value,
that is then sent for approval (SA Approver role)
b. the Buyer solicits and evaluates offers and a contract is approved (SA Approver role) i.e. Systems
Contract, Local Contract, multiple fiscal period contracts etc.)
c. upon approval, the items are ‘published’ to Contract Catalog at the line item level including the
vendor and contractual terms/conditions
such as pricing, Incoterm(s), delivery period etc.

With the introduction of the UN Contract Catalog and integrated Master Data, the Requisitioning process will
be more streamlined:
• For re-occurring requirements (Systems Contracts, multiple fiscal period contracts etc.), items can be
solicited and published to the Contract Catalog (includes vendor, price, Incoterms etc.)
• Contract Catalog Items are added to the Shopping Carts and upon approval (SA Approver), Umoja
generates a populated Purchase Order (vendor, Product Category, ID, item, price etc.) that is forwarded to
the Buyer for review, approval (SA Approver) and release
• For items that are not Contract Catalog Items, Material and Service Master Data allows Requisitioners to
add goods/services to Shopping Carts for solicitation
• Upon approval, a Shopping Cart is forwarded to the Buyer for issuance of an RFx and resulting PO

Requisitioning Process Review
• An Unfunded Shopping Cart can result only in an Unfunded Contract
whose items are published to the Contract Catalog on an line item basis
i.e. Systems Contracts, multiple fiscal period contracts, BPOs
• A Funded Shopping Cart ultimately results in a Purchase Order issued by
Procurement.
• Once approved, a Shopping Cart with items added from the Contract
Catalog results in a pre-populated Purchase Order that is sent to
Procurement for review and approval.
• Items added via Internal Goods/Services result in a Shopping Cart that
once approved is forwarded to Procurement who will undertake
solicitation.
Copyright © United Nations
25
Requisitioning Process Review
• Therefore, whenever possible, the Contract Catalog should be used to add
items to the Shopping Cart
• Funding for a Shopping Cart is checked through the automated Account
Availability Check (AVC) process prior to it being ordered. A Shopping Cart
cannot be ordered if sufficient funds do not exist in the Cost Center/Fund
Center. The funds pre-commitment is not created until it is approved.
• Almost all products and services procured by the UN will have
Material/Service Master records already populated in Umoja – these are
accessed through the Shopping Cart when adding items. If an appropriate
record does not exist or there are questions on choosing the appropriate
Product Categories/IDs contact the Material Master Data Team: [email protected]

Low Value Acquisitions - Overview
• The Low Value Acquisitioner Enterprise Role is required to undertake the
LVA process in Umoja
• The Low Value Acquisition (LVA) process is used for ad hoc requirements
that do not exceed $4,000 USD. LVAs should typically not contain Contract
Catalog Items, meaning those items linked to an existing Systems or Local
Contract. The exception is if the item is a Contract Catalog Item from
a Blanket Purchase Order (more to follow on this).
• An approved LVA is a Purchase Order for goods or services and replaces and
automates the current ‘Short Form Purchase Order’ and ‘Direct
Expenditures’ processes
• Once approved by the Approver (Certifying Officer - Cost/Fund Center), the
PO can be issued to the Supplier directly without the involvement of the
Buyer/Procurement
Copyright © United Nations
27
Low Value Acquisitions - Overview
The Low Value Acquisitioner Enterprise Role can use the Low Value Acquisition (LVA) process to create a
Purchase Order under the following conditions (in green below):
- the item (good/service) does not exceed $4,000 and the item is not a contract catalog
item (on an existing contract) OR
- the item (good/service) does not exceed $4,000 and the item is a Blanket Purchase Order
Contract Catalog Item (discuss further with the Procurement Office)
Note – only the scenario in green below is for action by the Low Value Acquisitioner Role. The red scenarios are for
action by the Requisitioner or Requisitioner – Direct Procurement Roles only.

Low Value Acquisitions (LVA) vs. Shopping Carts
The process for creating an LVA is similar to creating a Shopping Cart except for the
following distinctions:
LVA (LVA Role)
Type
Supplier
Budgetary
Impact
Shopping Cart
(Requisitioner Roles)
Is a type of PO
Is a Shopping Cart (Requisition)
Supplier must be selected and
finalized during creation
Supplier is not required except when a
Contract Catalog Item is selected in which
case Umoja automatically assigns Supplier
Funds Commitment is created on Funds Pre-commitment is created on
approval of LVA PO
approval of the Shopping Cart
Note: An office’s current ‘Low Value Vendors’ will typically be created in Umoja prior to
implementation. However, if a new supplier is required and does not exist in Umoja SRM, a
request for a new ‘Low Value Vendor’ must be submitted through the appropriate channels i.e.
iNeed etc. The supplier will then be created in Umoja (ECC) by the Central Data Maintenance
team. These ‘Low Value Vendors’ are available only for LVAs in SRM and not regular procurement.
Procurement offices will monitor the use of ‘Low Value Vendors’ and may require their conversion
to a regular supplier status and registration
in UNGM if they are used frequently.

Module 1 Summary
The key points covered in this module are listed below:
• The Material and Service Master records are new Master Data objects within UN
and are maintained centrally
• The selection of the correct Product Category and Product ID for the items is
critical for downstream processes (inventory etc.)
• Umoja SRM is a Web-based application used specifically for Requisitioning and
Procurement activities
• Shopping Carts are used in Umoja SRM instead of the current Purchase
Requisitions
• Upon approval, a Shopping Cart results in either: a pre-populated Purchase Order
(Contract Catalog Items only) forwarded to the Buyer for review and approval; or a
Shopping Cart forwarded for solicitation (non Contract Catalog Items)
• Requirements with an estimated total value not exceeding $4,000 USD
can be procured via the LVA process, unless the desired products
are linked to an existing Systems or Local contract (exception
is BPO Contract Catalog Items). The Low Value Acquisitioner
Enterprise Role is required to undertake this activity in Umoja.

It is the funding information that is needed for all Shopping Carts
/LVAs (includes applicable Funds and Funds Centers) before being
submitted for approval.
Identifies the type of funding for the procurement action (for
example Cost Center, WBS, Internal Order) and appears in the
Shopping Cart/LVA. This determines the type of account
assignment data that is needed for an item.
It is a cost object that represents a unit of the organization that
collects costs and revenues for on-going operations or functions i.e.
10074 = Engineering Section. This is derived (populated
automatically) based on the information in the user’s profile and
can be amended as required.
Fund Center
It is an organizational unit within the FM module that controls a
budget. It is automatically derived from the Cost Center.
Fund
In Umoja, it represents the foundation for tracking, controlling and
reporting on available financial resources and is typically linked to
an entity i.e. 10UNA = UNON, 20OLA = UNIFIL

Before starting a Shopping Cart, the Requisitioner should determine the overall
requirements (consolidated procurement) for the good or service and estimate the total
value of the requirement i.e. one-time buy or Systems Contract/multiple fiscal period
contract (value estimated over the proposed lifetime).
•
If the estimated total cost of Shopping Cart is not exceeding $4,000 USD, the LVA
process should typically be followed
Note: All required/relevant fields for the creation of Shopping Carts will be discussed
in the following slides. However, as SRM has not been built specifically for UN, there
are some fields /buttons that are not currently being used for Umoja and which may
not be discussed.

•
The Contract Catalog is used to add items from Systems and/or Local Contracts
•
Items can be searched based on Product Category, Product Description, Contract ID or
other criteria
•
It is the first option that should be used by Requisitioners when searching for an item, as it
is the easiest and most efficient way to carry out Requisitioning & Procurement - further
solicitation of the requirement is not needed and a Purchase Order (PO) can be issued
directly
•
After Shopping Carts with items from the Contract Catalog are approved, a pre-populated
PO is automatically generated and sent to the Buyer for review and release for approval.
This could include procuring from a Systems Contracts or adding funding for a multiple
fiscal period contract. Solicitation is not required because, the Contract has already been
approved by the contracting authority and further solicitation of the requirement is not
needed (no change from current rules and regulations).
•
If there are multiple contracts available for an item, the Requisitioner has
the option to select which contract to use

•
The Internal Goods/Service option is used to identify/select items using the Material/Service
Master records in Umoja.
•
The system will alert the user if the selected item is already available from the Contract
Catalog making it available for faster fulfilment. The user may choose to select Contract
Catalog Item or not.
•
It allows the Requisitioner to clearly identify the required goods/services with consistency.
The Material/Service Master records contain Product Categories/IDs, unit of issue etc.
•
Items in the Material or Service Master (centrally maintained) support faster processing of
Shopping Carts through procurement and also enables for downstream processes (for
example Goods Receipt, inventory) and consistent identification of goods and services to
facilitate accurate reporting

If a new Material/Service Master is required, contact your Local Help Desk to raise an iNeed ticket
that will go to the Material Master Data Team (currently at the UNGSC) to review/action as
appropriate

Add Items to a Shopping Cart (Contract Catalog)
Note: in some cases, there are multiple Contract Catalog Items available for the same
item, for example when different Incoterms are available under the contract. Contact the
Procurement section if you are unsure of which Incoterm to use for your Shopping Cart
or have questions on the Contract Catalog Items.
For Contract Catalog Items with Incoterms that require freight forwarding (for example
FCA), the Requisitioner will need to add a line to the Shopping Cart for freight prior to
submitting it for approval.
Umoja will alert the Requisitioner if this is required and has not been done. If a freight
line is required, it is added using ‘Internal Goods/Services’ which accesses the Material
and Service Master Data. This will be covered in more detail shortly.

Umoja Alert Symbols
Umoja displays 2 types of alerts in the Shopping Cart:
• Error ( ): If an error is displayed it must be rectified before the
Shopping Cart can be ordered. For example: An error is displayed
if there is a missing Fund, Account Assignment or other critical
Funds Management error.
• Warning ( ): If a warning is displayed, the user should review the
warning and make necessary adjustments, if needed. However,
the Shopping Cart can still be ordered, even if there is an active
warning. For example: a warning is displayed if an existing
contract is available for an item.

Product Category Contract Catalog Items
There are 2 types of Contract Catalog Items:
1. Standard Contract Catalog Items – Individual Line Items are Defined Down to the
Product ID Level
- include: Product Category + Product ID + Incoterm + Price
- examples: Systems Contracts (those with line items defined), Multi-fiscal Period
Contracts (lease, catering etc.)
2. Product Category Contract Catalog Items – There are Too Many Items to List Individually
and/or Regularly Fluctuating Prices so Only the Product Category is Included
- item specifies a Product Category only (no Product ID, no Price, Incoterm optional)
- the Product Category Contract Catalog Item is selected and further defined in the
Shopping Cart – assigning a Product ID, Pricing and part # (from external price list etc.)
- examples: Systems Contracts such as Transport Spare Parts, CISCO and Blanket
Purchase Order (BPO)
- Blanket Purchase Orders which are basically a Systems Contracts with a not-to-exceed
value of up to $50,000
* a contract can contain both standard and Product Category items
Copyright © United Nations
58
Product Category Contract Catalog Items
As explained, there are certain types of contracts in the Contract Catalog that do not list all of the line
items covered under the contract. This is the case for contracts covering a large number of different
products/items, often with frequently changing prices such as transport spare parts Systems Contracts
or Blanket Purchase Orders etc. These items are Product Category Contract Catalog Items.
While the Product Category is included for the listed items, the Product ID field and the price is blank.
There may be several lines in the contract each with a different Product Category.
Recall that typically both the Product Category and Product ID are required for all items. If a Product
Category Item is selected, the Requisitioner is required to populate the appropriate Product ID and unit
price for each item prior to submitting the Shopping Cart for approval.
To Order from a Product Category Contract, the Requisitioner will:
– Select the applicable Product Category Contract Catalog Item (has no Product ID) from the
Contract Catalog
– Create a Funded Shopping Cart
– Select the most appropriate Product ID from the Material/Service Master records available in
that Product Category (questions to MDM Team: [email protected])
– Enter the price for the item using an external price list as reference and include the item
description/supplier part # in the Shopping Cart Notes if not in the Product ID (more to follow)
Copyright © United Nations
59
Product Category Contract Catalog Items
To Establish a Product Category Contract, the Requisitioner will:
– Add a Product Category Contract Catalog Item(s) that has a Product Category only (no Product
ID) using Internal Goods/Services (more to follow on this method)
– Create an Unfunded Shopping Cart. Note that on the Item Data Tab an entry must be made in
the ‘Description’ field or the Shopping Cart cannot be ordered
– The Shopping Cart should include an estimated value and a note to the Buyer describing the
requirement i.e. this is to create a BPO or Systems Contract for Transport Spares etc.
– The Requisitioner can attach a list of the proposed items to the Shopping Cart for the Buyer
– Procurement awards a contract and publishes the Product Category Contract Catalog Items to
the Contract Catalog (with no price)
For Detailed Steps and additional information, refer to the Umoja Product Category Contracts Job Aid
for requisitioners, available on the Umoja iSeek page.

Simulation Activities
Throughout this training, users will have the opportunity to
conduct activities in the form of simulations. Simulations
are interactive recordings of the Umoja system used to
help facilitate a hands-on learning experience. The
simulation links are provided on the corresponding activity
slides.
Users can access simulations in 3 different modes:
• Show me: Users view a video of an entire transaction
being conducted
• Let’s do it together: Users will be prompted to input
data at key points during the transaction
(recommended)
• Try it: Users can complete an entire transaction on
their own, with no additional instructions provided

Add Items to a Shopping Cart (Freight Line)
As mentioned, if a Contract Catalog Item with an Incoterm that requires freight is
selected i.e. EXW, FCA etc. a freight line must be added to the Shopping Cart.
In fact, for the these Contract Catalog Items, the system will prompt and require the
Requisitioner to add a line to the Shopping Cart for freight costs prior to submitting for
approval. A Help Display is available.
The red icon indicates that the action must be taken in order to proceed with the
Shopping Cart. A freight line must be added before the Shopping Cart can be ordered.
For non Contract Catalog Items added via the Internal Goods/Services that require
freight, a freight line should be added although Umoja will not provide a warning if not
done.

Add Items to a Shopping Cart (Services)
•
The Requisitioning process for services is identical to requisitioning for goods.
However, the Shopping Cart should be set up in a way that facilitates the potential
for partial receipt and payment of services in Umoja if required.
•
The Requisitioner must plan for and be aware of how the service is expected to be
delivered and if partial service delivery/payment will be required. This is to ensure
that the downstream service receipts can be made for a partial service delivery i.e.
monthly.
•
Recall that a specific unit of measure is linked to each Product ID and cannot be
modified in the Shopping Cart. Some units of measure facilitate partial receipts over
the period of contract (e.g. months, weeks, etc.) , however, some may not such as
EA (each).
•
Consider the example that security guard services are required for one year at an
estimated cost of $120,000. If the unit of measure is EA with a Quantity 1 at a total
estimated cost of $120,000 then it won't be possible to receive or pay for any
partial deliveries (monthly etc.). Only 1 receipt can be made as the quantity is 1.
Copyright © United Nations
70
Add Items to a Shopping Cart (Services)
Let’s take a look at this example and how to avoid this issue when raising a Shopping Cart:
•
A Requisitioner creates a Shopping Cart for one year of security guard services estimated
at $120,000. The relevant Product/Service Master ID has been selected and the item has
been added to the Shopping Cart with a quantity of 1 EA (each) for the one year of
service. The total estimated value of $120,000 for the year (estimated price of $10,000
per month) is entered – see below. The Purchase Order (PO) is issued on this basis.
•
When the time comes to receive this service in Umoja, the Requisitioner finds that the
service provider is to be paid monthly in arrears after each month of security guard
service is delivered (i.e. partial service delivery). However, partial payment cannot be
made on this PO as the quantity is 1 and 1 cannot be received/split into 12 portions.
**Typically a revised Shopping Cart/Purchase Order will be required to rectify the issue**
Copyright © United Nations
71
Add Items to a Shopping Cart (Services)
How to Avoid this Issue for this Annual $120,000 Contract:
If possible, select a Product ID with the unit of issue that reflects the delivery/payment schedule in order
to allow for partial receipt . For example, use a Product ID of ‘Month ‘or if one does not exist use ‘EA’
and indicate a quantity of 12 at $10,000 dollars each (see below). The Requisitioner can then receive
the Services at 1 unit (each representing a month) at $10,000 each, for a total of 12 months/$120,000:
-
Or create separate line items for each unit of service to be received
Another technique for requisitioning for Services to allow for partial receipt, including on an ‘as and
when requested’ basis, is to:
•
Flip the quantity and price (e.g. quantity 120,000 Units @ $1 EA) – allows for a variation in
service delivery/payment (i.e. if on an ‘as an when required’ basis and not monthly)

Complete Item Details (#2 - Account Assignment Tab)
All Shopping Carts need to have accurate Account Assignment information in order to
determine the funding source before they can be ordered. In order to complete the Account
Assignment Tab there are 3 key fields that the Requisitioner must enter and/or validate:
Account Assignment
Category
Cost/Fund Center, Internal
Order or WBS
Specifies what type of object
in Umoja is being charged (for
example Cost Center, Internal
Order, WBS, Unfunded or
Asset ) for the Shopping Cart.
Specifies the Cost Center, or
Internal Order or WBS number that
will be charged.
All Cost Centers have an identical
Funds Center. This field is prepopulated based on the Cost
Center, which is typically defaulted
based on the user profile.
If applicable, the Internal Order or
a WBS, number will be provided to
the Requisitioner by the
appropriate office i.e. Budget etc.
Fund
Specifies the entity i.e. 20OLA
= UNIFIL
Umoja SRM will perform an 'AVC' to verify if sufficient funds are available to cover the estimated total cost
of the Shopping Cart . If funds are not available the Shopping Cart will not be submitted for approval.
The budget is impacted only once a Funded Shopping Cart is approved (i.e. a Pre-commitment of funds).
Copyright © United Nations
85
Complete Item Details – Account Assignment Categories
While the default Account Assignment Category called ‘Cost Center’ is typically used in many offices
for the majority of Shopping Carts, it may be necessary for you to select another option. The key
Account Assignment Categories to be familiar with are:
Asset
Cost Center
Used for the majority of Shopping Carts, this
option will charge the selected Cost Center
(defaulted based on the Requisitioner’s user
attributes) for the estimated amount i.e. 10076
(Supply Section).
An item defined as an Asset under IPSAS i.e.
valued at ≥$20,000 USD (≥$5,000 USD for
specified smaller entities) and for certain items
(i.e. vehicles) valued at ≥$5,000 USD.
WBS (Work Breakdown Structure)
Order (Internal Order)
Used to collect costs and revenues for a
specific event/simple project that has defined
start and end dates and is usually temporary in
nature and where costs should be segregated
from other events or on-going operations to
enable more detailed monitoring. Users would
be advised when to requisition against an
Internal Order.
Used only for larger projects associated with
the Project Management module of Umoja.
Users would be advised when to requisition
against a WBS.
Unfunded
Unfunded Shopping Carts are typically used to
initiate the solicitations process to create an
Unfunded Contract i.e. Systems Contract ,
multiple fiscal period contract, BPO. A Funded
Shopping Cart will subsequently be required to
issue a PO to procure items or to add internal

Complete Item Details (Account Assignment Tab – Cost Center)
Note: to split the costs of a Shopping Cart between Cost/Fund Centers, it is necessary to
create a new line item for each Cost Center/Account Assignment.
For example, if a central team is creating a Shopping Cart for 5 digital projectors that will
be divided between two Cost Centers, the Shopping Cart and Account Assignment
should be formulated as follows:
Line
Item
Quantity
Cost Center
1
Digital Projectors
2 EA
Cost Center A

Digital Projectors
3 EA
Cost Center B
Note: Umoja is not configured to use the Cost Distribution
functionality in SRM for typical requirements - users are to
avoid splitting cost distribution for a single line item.

• The Requisitioner must verify if a product is considered to be a Asset in
accordance with the IPSAS guidelines i.e. it is valued at ≥$20,000 USD
($≥5,000 USD or more for specified smaller entities) or for certain items (i.e.
vehicles) valued at ≥$5,000 USD.
• Items must be identified as Assets in the Shopping Cart by completing various
unique fields. This is required to ensure and facilitate the completion of the
appropriate down stream processes i.e. capitalizing cost, inventory, recording
in the financial records etc.
• The first step is to search/add items to the Shopping Cart based on the
description. Items can be added by any of the 3 methods (Contract Catalog
Items, Internal Goods and Services, Old Shopping Carts/Templates). Complete
the Item Data Tab as per usual.

Complete Item Details (Account Assignment Tab – Asset)
The Product ID for Assets valued at $20,000 USD or more typically starts with ‘21’
i.e. the Product ID for a ‘Computer, Server, Standalone’ (Asset) is: 2100001063
Recall, each Product ID is created by the Master Data Maintenance Team during
codification and is linked to a Product Category. The classification of an item as
an Asset or not, typically takes place at that stage for items valued at $20,000 or
more. Note smaller offices that have the lower threshold of $5,000 may have
Assets with product IDs not starting with ’21’.
Each Asset (each unit in an Asset line item) must be assigned a unique Asset
Master Record number when creating the Shopping Cart. This is required for
down stream activities.

• The Unfunded Account Assignment Category is selected when the Shopping
Cart is created. Although called Unfunded, the Shopping Cart should include
the total estimated value of the requirement over the lifetime of the proposed

helpful to inform the Approver (Certifying Officer Delegation) of the estimated

• The items in the approved contract are published to Umoja’s Contract Catalog.
As in the legacy system, in order to procure goods/services against a Systems
Contract or to issue internal funding (i.e. lease contract), a funded Shopping
Cart and a resulting Purchase Order must be issued.
• To do so, the Requisitioner raises a Funded Shopping Cart, selecting the

into a populated Purchase Order that is forwarded via Workflow to the Buyer
for review and subsequently forwarded to the Approver (Procurement
Delegation) for approval.

To lease a premises, the Requisitioner will raise an Unfunded Shopping Cart which will result in a
Contract Catalog Item i.e. 3 year lease contract at $10,000 per month. The Requisitioner will then
raise a Funded Shopping Cart to obligate funds for the financial period (i.e. 12 months at $10,000
per month) by selecting and adding the lease-in Contract Catalog Item to the Shopping Cart. The
Funded Shopping Cart for the lease must include the required Real Estate data.

Team Shopping Carts
The Team Cart functionality allows Requisitioners to view and edit Shopping Carts
of other Requisitioners within the same Organizational Unit (e.g. Section).
After a Requisitioner creates and saves a Shopping Cart, it automatically becomes
visible to others of the same unit.
Requisitioners of the same unit can take over and edit any Shopping Carts in Saved
status and can also view (only) other shopping carts in their section that are in
Approved and Awaiting Approval status. This is useful when the person is on leave
and a fellow team member must finalize a partially completed shopping cart for
example.
Note: There is no workflow associated with this take over action. The
system would not automatically notify the other Requisitioner that you
have taken over their Shopping Cart. Therefore, ensure an email is sent
to the Shopping Cart originator to advise them that their Shopping Cart
has been Taken Over.

Team Shopping Carts – Initial Setup
Initially, in the Quick Criteria Maintenance filter, all Requisitioners must ensure that the
