Statement of Policy

POs will remain open the entire fiscal year.  POs will be closed or rolled over by Accounting Services at fiscal year-end.  PeopleSoft Shared Financial System (SFS) does not allow the re-opening of POs once closed.

Extenuating circumstances may occur during the year which will make closing a PO a necessity.  Other exceptions to closing POs at year end are grants or individual funding lines that are ending.  Accounting Services will close POs at the request of the Dean’s Office or Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) only in these circumstances…
