Unit 10 Project

Hi everyone,

I'm beginning to think about this project now and trying to scrape a few different ideas together. I am the only person who deals with the Purchase Ledger in my company's divisional accounts team.

I scan invoices and credits individually and enter them manually as batches.
I pay all suppliers by BACS.
I set up and amend all supplier accounts/details and bank details on the BACS system. Manager's authorise their specific departmental invocies to codes and I pass them to free the document for payment.

The manager's every month do not authorise all of their invoices on time for my BACS run even though they are given 2 weeks notice before payment is sent. This means that supplier's start chasing for their money, accounts are put onto stop, seperate BACS & CHAPS payments have to be sent which costs the company more money. Could this be a good enough idea to base the project on?

Any help would very much be appreicated!!

    Sounds good to me, you can cover the fraud elements as well as mistakes could be made due to last minute authorisation without proper care being taken.

    That sounds really good, you have a lot to work on. I am doing mine on implementing a purchase order system. Don't forget to include fraud, training etc.

    I just need to start putting it to paper. Do you have a template to work too....

    Thank you. I'm still waiting for a reply from my Premier Training tutor about it so wasn't sure!!

    Jennie - I have no template at all. I have literally just thought of this idea (as it bugs me at work!) and wanted a few opinions before starting anything - although to be honest I don't really know where to start. I've printed a few guidelines from the AAT website so when I start will probably just stick to these for a rough first draft. Do you have any guides or templates that you are working on? Your idea is really good too - a 4000 word limit is quite high but we should definitely have enough to ramble on about with our topics!

    A few pointers from when I did mine last year:

    + Know what the criteria is for unit 10
    + It doesn't have to be 4000 words (I achieved mine in 3100)
    + Complete it logically (You can't start doing the "Methodology" until you've done the rest)

    These are the sections I had:

    1) Terms of reference
    2) Executive summary
    3) Methodology
    4) Organisation background
    5) Analysis and evaluation of the current system
    6) Recommendations and cost benefit analysis
    7) Implementation & Monitoring of recommendations
    Then appendices

    Number each new paragraph, so 1.1 then 1.2... and then 2.1 for the first paragraph in section 2

    I can also send a copy of my project if anyone would find that helpful, have a read of your draft, or if anyone wants last years unit 10 Osborne book I can send that too for free :D
