FM Purchasing Categories

FM is transitioning to a new funding model. Expense transactions will be divided into three categories: Billables, Overhead and Inventory. Moving forward, only Billable expense transactions will be put in AiM. This means that A# work orders will no longer be used for Overhead and Inventory transactions. This page provides the necessary guidance for employees that initiate purchase orders and Chrome River transactions.
