Acquisitions PINES-wide Defaults
PINES has set several consortium wide defaults in the Acquisitions module. This chapter describes the defaults that are currently in place. Libraries that wish to request additional defaults may do so.
Currency types are assigned to funds, funding sources, and providers using Acquisitions Administration. When a fund is applied to a copy or line item for purchase, the item will be purchased in the currency associated with that fund.
PINES Currency Type Defaults
The currencies set in Acquisitions are:
- US Dollars
- Canadian Dollars
- Mexican Peso
- Brazilian Real
Exchange rates define the rate of exchange between currencies. Evergreen uses these exchange rates in several situations. When the currency of the fund that is used for the purchase is different from the currency of the provider, as listed in the provider's profile, Evergreen will use the exchange rate and the estimated price to calculate the amount to encumber for the item in the currency of the fund and debit the fund accordingly. When money is transferred between funds that use different currency types, Evergreen will automatically use the exchange rate to convert the money to the currency of the receiving fund. When money is allocated from a funding source to a fund that uses different currency types, Evergreen will automatically use the exchange rate to convert the money to the currency of the receiving fund.
PINES Exchange Rate Defaults
The exchange rates have been set in the Acquisitions Module. These are:
- U.S. Dollars to Canadian Dollars
- Canadian Dollars to U.S. Dollars
- Euros to U.S. Dollars
- U.S. Dollars to European Euros
- U.S. Dollars to Mexican Peso
- Mexican Peso to U.S. Dollar
- U.S. Dollars to Brazilian Real
- Brazilian Real to U.S. Dollars
PINES is in the process of determining an official source to use for exchange rates and the frequency of updates. If you require an exchange rate not listed here, please submit a HelpDesk Ticket.
Evergreen allows you to define the reason for which a copy, line item or purchase order is canceled. Applying a cancel reason prevents the item from appearing in a claims list and allows you to cancel any debits associated with the purchase.
Cancel reasons that are set to “keep debits?” enable you to suspend or delay a purchase. For more information on canceling and suspending purchases, see Cancel/Suspend Acquisitions.

Vendor Cancel Codes
Some vendors have provided documentation on the meaning of their cancel codes in cancellation reports, to help you choose the correct cancel reason in Acquisitions.
Invoice Item Type
Invoice Item Types allow you to enter additional charges on a purchase order or invoice. Charges for bibliographic items are listed separately from these additional charges on a purchase order or invoice. Invoice Item Types are either set to Prorate=True or Prorate=False. When Save and Close is selected on an invoice, the system will prorate any charges where Prorate=True. This means that payment for the Invoice Item Type will be divided by all the funds in use on the invoice in proportion to the amount being spent by each fund on the invoice.

The default invoice item types are:
|Blanket order||An amount to be encumbered and associated with multiple invoices.||BLA|
