Financial Services Announcements

As we head to the end of Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19), your cooperation is requested to ensure that transactions are properly recorded in the correct accounting period. A brief description of the critical deadlines to assist you with your department’s year end closing process follows. Please click here for the printable version of this memo. 

Requisitions for FY19 Expenditures

Procurement requisitions (PUR01) for any project where the expenditure must be recorded in FY18 totaling less than $200,000 must be submitted to Financial Services- General Accounting (FSGA) by Monday, May 6, 2019. Requisitions totaling more than $200,000 must be submitted by Friday, April 5, 2019. Please insure that any back-up documentation necessary is expedited to FSGA as requisitions will be held until documentation is received. Adherence to these deadlines will help us to insure that a purchase order is generated by June 30, 2019. Requisitions submitted after May 6th will need to be dated July 1, 2019 or later (both accounting date and requisition date). 

Procurements involving complicated proposal submissions from vendors, contracts, lengthy evaluations, or those requiring outside agency approval have a long lead-time. Requisitions of this type should be submitted IMMEDIATELY. It is recommended that you consult with Strategic Sourcing and Acquisition Services as soon as your needs are identified. 

A non-procurement requisition (PUR02) for expenditures may be submitted through Tuesday, June 12, 2019. After June 12th, all PUR02 requisitions must be dated July 1, 2018 or later (both accounting date and requisition date) and FSGA will begin approving them beginning July 1st. 

Requisitions for FY20 Expenditures

The July 2019 period has been opened in eUMB so you can begin creating requisitions for FY19. PLEASE NOTE: The ACCOUNTING date and the REQUISITION date for all FY20 requisitions must be JULY 1, 2019. These date fields default to the current date in eUMB so they must be manually changed.
