Newsletter Translational Medicine 2/2015

21 December, 2015

Dear colleagues,

We have soon finished the first year as the Department of Translational Medicine. I look back upon an exciting and challenging year with a lot of work, but also joy.

I want to thank everyone at the Department for their efforts and achievements during the past year. I also want to thank the now leaving board for the past three years. This board has recently given me the opportunity to continue my engagement as Head of the Department for another three years. I am looking forward to this – there is unquestioningly a lot of ambition and potential among us at Translational Medicine which I hope to be able to promote further.

Tommy Andersson

In this letter you will find financial information, information about the new board members and our new Departmental Office which will be up and running in January 2016.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Tommy Andersson

Nytt ekonomisystem och ny ekonomimodell vid årsskiftet

Som ni alla vet så kommer vi efter årsskiftet att använda ett nytt ekonomisystem, Raindance. Det blir också en ny kodplan och kodsträngen kommer att se annorlunda ut. I och med denna övergång så kommer Orfi, Lupp och e-kontrakt därmed att avvecklas.

Hur kommer detta att påverka dig?

  • Bättre ekonomiadministrativt stöd till forskningsprojekt.
  • Nytt sätt att kontera i Primula och i Lupin.
  • Inga fler internfakturor i internposten – de kommer i Lupin istället!
  • Lättåtkomlig och lättläst projektuppföljning i Kuben som kommer att ersätta LUPP.
  • Rekvisitioner och utbetalningar av bidrag kommer att göras via Raindance.
  • Det blir ny löpande nummerserie på aktiviteter – d.v.s. alla gamla aktiviteter blir överförda till det nya systemet och får nya nummer.
  • Det blir möjligt att lägga in ”Intrastatinformation och statistisk varukod” på fakturorna direkt i Lupin.


Datum att ha koll på

  • 22 december 2015
    Fakturor som förfaller till betalning t.o.m. den 31 december 2015 måste vara attesterade senast kl 18.00 för att bli betalda i tid.
  • 11 januari 2016
    Sista dag att granska och attestera alla fakturor i Lupin som tillhör 2015 de måste hinna bli klara (senast kl 18.00).  Fakturor som inte är klara då kommer att flyttas och skickas ut på nytt för granskning och attest så att de kan konteras och då med den nya kodsträngen.
  • 12-13 januari 2016
    Lupin kommer att vara stängt.
  •  12 januari 2016
    Raindance kommer att öppnas.
  • 14 januari 2016
    Nu öppnar Lupin och internfakturorna slås på.


När Lupin öppnar igen den 14 januari 2016 kommer kontering i Lupin att fungera så här:

  • Du väljer endast aktivitet, inte kostnadsställe och inte verksamhet. Koddelarna ”sitter ihop”, t.ex. 156408.35.123456, så att du ser vilket kostnadsställe och vilken verksamhet som aktiviteten tillhör.


  • Första gången du ska kontera en beställning eller en faktura så kommer du att märka att du antagligen har många fler aktiviteter i din väljlista än idag. Den finfördelning av hur värden är tilldelade idag är tyvärr inte möjlig att hinna med inför driftstarten av den nya modellen, utan du kommer att vara tilldelad alla aktiviteter som finns på det/de kostnadsställen som din grupp har. För att minska din väljlista rekommenderar vi starkt att du använder funktionen favoriter! Det gör du enkelt i vilken söklista som helst i konteringen. Klicka på ”Favoriter” så kommer du till en bild där du för varje konteringsdimension markerar vilka värden du vill ha överst i din väljlista. Du kan även välja ett värde som förvalt (default). Vid behov kommer din ekonom att kunna hjälpa till med detta!


Översättningslista för aktiviteter Orfi - Raindance

Översättningslista för aktiviteter Orfi - Raindance uppdateras löpande och finns på Ekonomiportalen Översättningslistor Orfi-Raindance , här finns också all övrig information om Ny Ekonomi 2016.


ID och benämning på forskargrupper i Raindance

I bifogad pdf-fil finns samtliga forskargrupper på institutionen samt deras ID och benämning i Raindance, kostnadsställe i Orfi, uppgifter om ansvarig administratör, ekonomiadministratör samt HR-medarbetare.
