  • Due Date will be used as a criterion for closing or rolling PO’s this FY.
  • Departments should use the available queries (see RESOURCES section below) to review their PO’s as early as possible and send a list of PO numbers to be closed to

How will purchase orders be handled for FY end?

  • At FY end, OMNI will be used to roll “qualified” purchase orders forward to the new fiscal year. PO Rolling means that the remaining dollar amount of the existing purchase order will be encumbered in the new FY.
  • As indicated last year, blanket PO changes should be limited to one necessary change only, including extending the due date. Please contact Procurement Services if you require changes to blanket orders.
  • POs that have had no activity for the past fiscal year will not be rolled. If there is a need to roll a PO that meets this criteria, please contact Procurement Services.  This excludes Research and Construction POs. Due to system limitations, PO due dates cannot be extended once the due date on the PO has passed.

Which purchase orders will qualify to be rolled?

  • Must be in dispatched status and successfully budget checked.
  • Must not have a receipt imbalance (in either quantity or amount) with a voucher. i.e., all vouchers and receipts must have been associated by an exact match.
  • Must have an encumbrance balance greater than $100
  • Must have the Last Activity Date of 4/24/2020 or later.
  • Must not have open distribution lines with closed project chartfields.
  • Must not be fully received and fully matched.
  • POs with Due Date after June 23, 2020. (excluding Research "R" and Construction POs)

How do I review my outstanding purchase orders?

  • Queries are available to help you manage your purchase orders. See RESOURCES section below.

What do I do after reviewing my purchase orders?

  • Please submit a complete list of all PO’s to be closed and not rolled through COB 6/22/2020 to

What should I do if I get invoices for POs that were closed or cancelled?

  •  Please submit a payment E-PRF to Accounts Payable and reference the cancelled or closed PO number.

What should I do if it is past the deadline to submit a requisition and I have an urgent procurement need?

  • If an urgent need arises during the period that requisitioning is closed, please contact Procurement Services or use your PCard. PCard purchases must follow University guidelines. Contact PCard Administrator to obtain a waiver/exception for emergency situations.

Deadlines stating "Last Day” refer to the last day in which we may be able to guarantee processing in FY20. You may continue to submit requisitions for any amount through 6/23/2020, but there is no guarantee that they will be processed.

If something is critical, please contact Procurement Services and we will work with your department on any urgent requests. Solicitation processes will still continue; however, the requisition will be entered next FY if the solicitation hasn't been awarded prior to the posted year end dates for requisition processing.
