ALA Presentation 2018 Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 Maybe No 6 Vendor Portal Training Comments General Comments Good class. It was great to have individual help. The hands on exercises were simple and taught what we need to know. Thanks. GREAT JOB!!! Excellent pace & information! Thank you! Very informative. Great training - good amount of teaching and practice. Thank you! Well done, with the size of the group. The exercises are very important to

provide familiarity. Good practical exercises. Couldn't have asked for any better training - even a "non-techno" could understand! Only thing I would suggest is notifying people that they can print the deck to bring with them and take notes on. ALA Presentation 2018 Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 7 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities Cost Zones Cost Zone 99 applies adjustment to all Cost Zones (worldwide) and should be used for Non-Negotiated Promotions only (Adjustment Code 1). Do not use Cost Zone 99 when offering a negotiated promotion because Cost Zone 99 is to be used for non-negotiated promotions only. When a cost change is submitted with Cost Zone 99, previous costs in ALL cost zones will end. If you need different costs reflected in different cost

zones after importing Cost Zone 99, you must then re-enter them in the applicable cost zones. When using Cost Zone 99 for a non-negotiated TPR (Adjustment Code 1), ensure the adjustment is meant to be applied World Wide. Presenter: Mr. Darrell Clary ALA Presentation 2018 Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 8 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities Cost Zones (contd) Cost Zone 999 applies adjustments to the 48 states in the continental US (Not Alaska and Hawaii) and should be used for Negotiated Promotions (Adjustment Codes 2 and 10). Alaska and Hawaii Cost Zones can be added if applicable. Cost Zone 999 is to be used for adjustments only. Avoid using Cost Zone 999 for cost changes because the system will not process the transaction.

Presenter: Mr. Darrell Clary ALA Presentation 2018 Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 9 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities Negotiated Promotions/Adjustments Non-EDI vendors cannot present Managers Specials (Adjustment Code 10) in Vendor Portal until Bill Back Manager is deployed. Instead, Non-EDI vendors should submit an Adjustment Code 1 for Non-negotiated offers and Adjustment Code 2 for Negotiated offers (Power Buys on the National Promotional Package). Avoid using Cost Zones 11 (Europe), 22 and 23 (Alaska and Hawaii), and 24 (Pacific OCONUS) when presenting a Managers Special (Adjustment Code 10) Negotiated Promotion. You can use the vendors comment field and state Managers Special will be supported by a local VCM for HI, AK, EU, and PAC. Avoid using Cost Zone 11 (Europe) and Cost Zone 24 (Pacific OCONUS) when presenting a Negotiated Promotion. Instead use the vendor comment field to state that a Local VCM will be used to support if item is accepted

into the promotion. Presenter: Ms. Barbara Merriweather ALA Presentation 2018 Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 10 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities Non-EDI Vendors Remember, all costs and adjustments must be entered by the CASE amount. This has been a reoccurring problem as the Web-Pricing vendors transitioned over to Vendor Portal. Ensure Promotional Adjustments are entered as the amount off the base cost; not off of the new promotional cost. Presenter: Mr. Larry Peck ALA Presentation 2018

Portal 10.5.2.188 13 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities Things to remember when submitting cost and adjustments Clarification on how Recoup/Gross margin is applied and when in the process of calculation of price it occurs: Retail Price = Cost from the vendor + Recoup/Gross Margin - Adjustments Recoup is calculation using Base cost prior to any adjustments When submitting a new cost do NOT submit an End Date when submitting through the Vendor Portal. When submitting Negotiated Promotions please reference the current Event Calendar published in DeCAs Notices to the Trade to ensure correct dates are submitted. Your offer may be refused if the dates are not correct because this creates bill paying issues. Managers Specials dates should reflect the Display Dates + one additional week. Presenter: Mr. Brian Myrick ALA Presentation 2018

Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 14 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities How to Submit Line Extension with Your Promotional Offer If you choose to extend your offer across a line of like items and the Primary Item is selected for the promotional package then the offer should include the line extensions. Use the comments field to indicate which items are suggested as Primary offshelf display items and include in the comments of the line extension this offer is only good if Primary item is Picked up or Line extension. Presenter: Ms. Rena Dial ALA Presentation 2018 Vendor

Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 16 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities OTBs, Shippers, Pallets, and Club-Packs Submissions The following Promotional Types require the use of the DeCAF 40-15 and DeCAF 40-16 presentation forms until Vendor Portal Phase II: Deal of the Week (Hot Deals) Display Shippers Pallet Shippers One-time Buys, Holiday/Seasonal Items Club-Packs Do not submit via EDI or Vendor Portal Submitting the above promotional types in EDI or Vendor Portal creates a risk of double adjustments. DeCAs Promotional Team will review the DeCAF forms for overlapping offers and after correction will enter the items into the Promotional Package. Presenter: Mr. James Taylor ALA Presentation

2018 Vendor Portal 10.5.2.188 17 Vendor Portal Learning Opportunities Standardization of Promotional Costs DeCA requests that vendors standardize their promotional cost submissions in the following manner: Submissions should be submitted with a base cost and an adjustment to reach the promotional cost. Example: Club-Pack ABC has $10.00 Base Cost with $3.00 Adjustment producing a $7.00 promotion cost offered to DeCA. Your assistance in this area will promote DeCAs effectiveness in selecting the right product assortment in each promotional package and will improve our ability to achieve meaningful analytics.
