In this August 2015 issue:
Business Services plans to transition to a new delivery/pick-up scheduling during the week of Aug. 13, that includes picking up West Campus mail between noon and 12:30 p.m. The east campus mail delivery/pick-up will continue to be 11:00 – 11:30 a.m. The earlier pick-up time is necessary for west campus to ensure mail is postmarked on the day of pickup.
The annual evacuation drills will be completed for all buildings between the dates of August 31st to September 11th. As a reminder whenever you hear the building alarm or are informed of a general building emergency:

As UNK users utilize eSHOP more and more, Accounts Payable wants to remind you that every invoice for a Non-Catalog order MUST be turned into the Accounts Payable office to be entered and paid through that system. We have had several inquiries in recent months, by vendors and departments, as to why their invoice didn’t get paid. We have found that the misconception is out there that if it was ordered in eSHOP that once the PO gets approved it just automatically gets paid. That is only true for the vendors that are punch-out or hosted catalogs (like Office Depot, most science vendors, and others with a “button” on the shopping home page) AND are utilizing electronic invoicing. If you receive an invoice in your department and it references an eSHOP PO # (starts with E000######) or you KNOW that it is connected to an eSHOP PO#, then it is always best to send it to Accounts Payable. Questions can be directed to -8419 or -8525.
After a multi-year planning effort, the UNK ID Card Office is instituting a re-carding initiative to issue new UNK ID Cards to the entire UNK campus. The new cards will feature a fresh, updated design, a current photo, and iClass smart card technology for increased security. Current ID card services such as Loper Dollars and access into the Wellness Center will continue uninterrupted with the new UNK ID Card. For more information on all of the benefits of the UNK ID Card, visit www.unk.edu/idcard. Watch your email for updates on how YOU can get your new UNK ID Card! Family members and other affiliates that have been issued the white UNK Guest/Vendor Card will continue to use this card for access to the Wellness Center and other privileges and will not be issued a new card at this time. Contact the UNK Card Office at 8154 with questions.
FINAL June FY2015 financial reports will be available in SAP on August 6. Remember to enter period=14 to capture all FY2015 financial activity.

When the responsible person for a cost center or WBS element changes, the person relinquishing responsibility can send an email to Chris Moran at firstname.lastname@example.org so that SAP can be updated. The name of responsible person can be found at the top of the Cost Center or WBS Revenue/Expense Summary report.
Waste and recycling receptacles will be changed out in academic buildings starting in August. The areas include classrooms, conference rooms, and central building locations. Once the receptacles are received an announcement will be made to the Building Supervisors notifying them when the current receptacle will be changed out. In addition to the academic buildings, new receptacles have been placed in each dorm room and a central waste and recycling station has been identified in each hall. If you have any additional questions or concerns of the recycling efforts on campus, please contact Facilities at ext. 1800.
If a vending machine malfunctions, make note of the machine ID number, and visit one of the following locations for a refund:
