In case of a requestor's stock shortfall, materials can be asked to other partners as loan from their stock; this process known as Loans & Borrowings requires the involved parties agreement and the funding made available by the service requestor to be used to replenish the stock owner inventory. An all comprehensive explanation of Loans & Borrowing process can be found in the "Loans & Borrowing process" document, while a detailed and technical description regarding the Stock Transfer / Loans & Borrowings process can be found in the "Stock Transfer Processes within UNHRD" document.
The request of loan has to be submitted by UCS representative to the lender party and when release will be obtained(submitted either via mail or any other communication means), it must be provided to the Support Office to allow the posting of the loan in the system. Support Office will inform the involved hub, and HRD Finance and Procurement unit by providing the agreement number assigned to the loan (e.g. AEHDNFI00000056); theagreement number must be recorded in all the WINGS documents (e.g. PR, PO, SO, OD etc.) and provide us the PR number thru which the items will be replenished to be returned to the Lender. It must be noted that all the loan postings, as well as the PRs and POs which will be raised with regards to the loan and borrowing process must have the Agreement document attached, which is the PDF version of the confirmation from the Lender release authority that approves the borrowing of items.
