The following general year-end provisions will apply to purchase orders and procurement card transactions as they relate to University budgets at the end of the FY23 fiscal year:


  1. Procurement card reconciliations are approximately one month behind, so all charges posted in US Bank by September 30 will apply towards your FY23 budget. Reconcilers are to submit their September reconciliation packets by October 5. All purchases made on October 1, 2023 or later will apply towards your FY24 budget.
  1. In order for purchases to apply to your FY23 budget, a purchase order must be issued, materials and/or services received, and payment processed no later than September 19, 2023.

  1. Beginning on September 18, 2023, requisitions must have a transaction date of October 2023.
    • If the requisition has not been approved and the transaction date has not been changed to October 2023, the requisition will need to be denied by an authorized approver.
    • Afterwards, please contact Procurement Services to have the transaction date on the requisition changed.
  1. During the period September 18-30, 2023, if the requisition has been approved, but the transaction date was not changed to October 1, 2023, contact Procurement Services to have the requisition deleted. A new requisition with a transaction date of October 1, 2023, will be needed in order to make your purchase.
  1. All requisitions, including those against contract and grant accounts, must be approved by September 18, 2023. If quotes/bids are required, then it must be submitted and approved by August 25 so that the purchase order can be issued by September 18, 2023.
  • Requisitions not approved by September 18, 2023 must be denied by an authorized approver.
  • The end-user is to be notified by the individual who denied the requisition.
  • Procurement Services should then be notified to change the transaction date to October 1, 2023.
  1. If you have FY23 authorized purchase orders on a Fund Type 21 funding source, please inform Melissa Brown (research/colleges) or Tammy Haymon (all other budget units) if the associated payment(s) will not be processed in FY23. The Budget Office will carry forward the funding of the purchase order to the next fiscal year since the expense will be charged in FY24. Non-Fund Type 21 funding sources will roll forward to the next fiscal year automatically
  1. Purchase orders from FY23 will not be carried forward to FY24 until October 6, 2023. From October 1-6, no change orders from FY23 will be processed by Procurement Services and no A/P disbursements will be issued against FY23 budgets. This restriction is due to standard year-end closing procedures while FY23 expenses are being finalized.
  1. Only purchase orders that have not been invoiced and paid will be brought forward into the new fiscal year. If a partial payment has been issued prior to September 30, 2023, only the remaining balance will be carried forward as an encumbrance obligation. Your available funds in your FY24 budget will be reduced by the outstanding amount of prior year purchase orders.
  1. All Barnes & Noble purchases made through department requisitions must occur by 5:00 pm on Friday, September 22, 2023, to ensure they are posted to your FY23 budget. All purchases made after this time will be posted to your FY24 budget.
