Updated: February 6, 2014

What’s new


Improvements to Public sector Role Centers and business intelligence content

The following Public sector Role Centers were updated: Accounts Receivable Administrator, Finance Director, Accounting Manager, and Accountant. You can now categorize Role Centers by the type of role: Strategic, Tactical, or Operational. The key performance indicators (KPIs) and organization performance indicators on Role Centers can now be easily modified, and can report variances and percentage of goal measurements. Chart rendering was improved, and an organization performance indicator to track the spendable balance by fund was added.

Budget analysis inquiry (Public sector)

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, public sector customers can display revenues and expenditures by financial dimension, by using a combination of data from budget register entries, the general ledger, and budget control. Revised budgets, actual expenditures, encumbrances, pre-encumbrances, and a discrete breakout of carry-forward amounts are available. Detail transactions can be displayed for a selected financial dimension for each budgeted amount, such as the original budget or revisions.

For more information, see Budget control cube (BudgetControlCube) for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2.

What’s new


Regulatory features for France

The primary address of the organization no longer has to be in France if you want to use the French public sector accounting rules. Instead, you must select the Use French public sector accounting rules check box in the Budget parameters form. Organizations that don’t use French public sector accounting rules should disable the French regulatory license configuration key (under the Public Sector license configuration key). By disabling this license configuration key, you remove any unusable menu items when the Use French public sector accounting rules check box is cleared.

In versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 before cumulative update 7, only the Public Sector configuration key must be selected. However, the primary address of the legal entity must be in France.

Dispose of fixed assets.

You can now dispose of more than one fixed asset at the same time. This feature saves time and reduces the risk of errors.

For more information, see About fixed asset disposal.

What’s new


Publishing a request for quotation (RFQ)

You can publish an RFQ to the public Vendor portal so that unregistered vendors can view it. All lines of the RFQ are also sent to the vendors that are selected in the RFQ.

For more information, see Create a request for quotation.

Viewing details of closed RFQs

Public sector vendors can view all open and closed purchase orders, RFQs, and their details. These details include scoring information and award notes about bids that are accepted.

For more information, see Bid on a request for quotation.
