-Office Supplies: Office supplies are purchased monthly by the Admin. Associate on UT Market: https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/frms/utmarket/ecommerce/ . Click into UT market > ”Today’s Office Depot Partner”. Once all items are added to cart, click “check out”, screenshot this page and save to desktop. Continue checking out and create Requisition: add in "dept. requisition #" (this is just for your internal use, so it can be "marchsupplies" for example). On the next page, make sure to add our building/room in the internal campus delivery section (FAC 338), so that the packages come directly to us. Add in out FYE office supplies account number with no dashes, and set the "funds distribution" at 100% for that account. Verify the document and approve it. It will then say that the form is on UGS Business Office's desk and you are done.

Create a UGS processing form on DocuSign and attach your cart screenshot to the form. Have it signed by the FYE director. We also take turns purchasing suite-wide supplies with BDP as needed (paper towels, printer paper, soap, etc. Speak with BDP admins to decide what is needed).


-Purchasing/Forms: All forms can be found here on DocuSign: Using the DocuSign Power Forms .

  • OOEF (Official Occasion Expense Form) - must be filled out, signed by FYE director and sent to the business office for events that will involve food/drinks. The form will be signed by Business Office. Once you receive receipt from event, attach receipts and processing form together to the OOEF and send to business office.

-Website: Contact Business Office to get Drupal access and training. Once you have Drupal access, FYE website updates can be made. Once you edit a page and confirm it, email ugs-cms-admin@utlists.utexas.edu to notify them, and they will publish your updates.

-The FYE Admin. Associate also should update our SIG Faculty Spotlight page about once a month. Choose a faculty member at the beginning of the month and email them asking the following questions:

-Tell us about your Signature Course.

                        -What is your favorite part about teaching a Signature Course?

                        -What is your best piece of advice for first-year students?

Then, edit the website (http://www.utexas.edu/ugs/sig/faculty-profiles) with a photo and their answers.

-The FYE Admin. Associate also should update our Signature Course “Wowsite” when necessary.


-Procard - The Procard is the office credit card kept by the FYE admin. Associate. Anyone in FYE may sign this card out to purchase things needed for their programs. The procard may not be used at restaurants or for personal purchases. Please save all receipts and bring them to the FYE Admin. Associate so they may attach the proper paperwork and send to the business office. When borrowing the procard, bring the office Tax exempt form with you, as all purchases should be tax exempt for the university (The Admin. Associate will have this, or ask Business Office). Please visit the purchasing section of the UGS business office wiki for more information regarding procurement: https://wikis.utexas.edu/display/ugshelp/Purchasing+Guidelines .


-Travel: For anyone needing travel in FYE, the FYE admin. Is responsible for first, creating and filling out a travel authorization request (see: https://wikis.utexas.edu/display/ugshelp/Travel+Guidelines+-+Before%2C+During%2C+and+After on UGS business office wiki for more info). Once that has been assigned to and approved by the UGS business office, we use the RTA number to book flights with our partnered travel agency: Corporate Travel Planners.

-Send any flight confirmations to the business office and the traveler. Make sure to remind the traveler to book their hotel and to save their receipts during the trip, as they’ll need them to process reimbursements when they return.
