Fiscal Year-End Deadlines for FY2015, Ending on June 30, 2015

  • All FY15 requisitions that do require a solicitation must be electronically entered, and show electronic departmental approval in the Banner system according to the following dollar amounts and dates:

            $100,000 and above by the end of Friday, May 8, 2015            

  • Items received after this time will be processed in FY15. Purchase orders issued by Tuesday, June 30, 2015 will encumber FY15 funds.
  • Encumbrances entered in FY15 or before as standing purchase orders will be carried forward to FY15, unless cancelled by the end-user.
  • FY15 requisitions that require bidding and/or that involve significant lead times should be submitted with consideration given to available processing time, bid guidelines, and product and service lead times. Submittals will be processed in the order received.
  • Requisitions that cannot be processed in FY15 will need to be resubmitted as new requisitions in FY15.

Processing guidelines

  • Advertising and posting—Approximately one to two weeks for orders greater than $25,000.
  • Purchases greater than or equal to $100,000 require review and approval by the Board of Governors at their scheduled meetings.
  • Buyer analysis, bid processing, and purchase order issuance—Approximately within one week during standard periods for routine items. RFPs that require the development of specifications and/or committee evaluation will involve longer time periods that are specific to the product or service.
  • Delivery lead times—Approximately one to two weeks for stock items and general services, or up to approximately two to ten weeks for production items and specialized services. Manufacturing scheduling and the availability of raw materials are examples of variables that can delay production and subsequent shipment dates.
  • FY15 requisitions for goods and services that require bidding should be submitted to Procurement Services per the above schedule, in order for the funds to be encumbered in FY15. Processing will be subject to the above guidelines.
  • After June 30th, all payment requests, including purchase orders and travel expense reports, will be reviewed by a designated accountant. If  the goods or services were received on campus prior to July 1st, the invoice will be dated June 30, 2015, and will be paid using FY15 monies. If the goods or services were received after June 30th, the invoice will be dated with the current date, and will be paid using FY16 monies. After approximately three weeks, only invoices above an amount set by Financial Services (approximately $15,000) will be paid using FY15 monies. When Period 12 is closed, only potential large payments (such as $50,000) will be paid using FY15 monies.

Purchase orders that were written in FY15 and invoiced in FY16 cannot be paid until the rollover for all purchase orders occurs. However, purchase orders written and invoiced in FY16 can be paid. Requisitions generated in FY15 with an invoice coded in FY15 will be reviewed by a designated accountant. If the goods or services were received by June 30, 2015 the requisition should be cancelled, the invoice should be submitted on a payment request, and it will be paid using FY15 monies. If the goods or services were received after June 30, 2015 the invoice will be dated with the current date and will be paid using FY16 monies. Care should be taken when determining whether a purchase order should be generated, or a payment request can be used for products or services completed prior to July 1st.

If you have any questions, please contact Financial Services.
