COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 07 (1996-97)
SUBJECT: IMPLEMENTATION OF A SINGLE ENTRY POINT FOR EDI TRANSACTIONS
We have determined that it is beneficial to implement a single entry point for future EDI transactions from the vendors to SAMAS. This single entry point will be provided by the current Value Added Network (VAN) services provided by the Department of Management Services. The use of a single VAN would only require one set of maps, avoid the need for duplicated equipment and software at the agencies, and avoid the possibility of duplicate invoices and payments. Vendor trading partners will have a single point for EDI invoicing to any of their State of Florida customers, thus avoiding confusion and additional costs for the vendors and the State.
