Fiscal Year-End Deadlines for FY2021, Ending on June 30, 2021

Requisitions

  • All FY21 requisitions that do not require a solicitation must be electronically entered, and show electronic departmental approval in the Banner system by the end of Friday, June 11, 2021.
  • All FY21 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:

$25,000 - $99,000 by the end of Wednesday, May 19, 2021
$100,000 and above by the end of Friday, April 30, 2021
  • Items received after this time will be processed in FY22. Purchase orders issued by Wednesday, June 30, 2021 will encumber FY21 funds.
  • Encumbrances entered in FY21 or before as standing purchase orders will be carried forward to FY22, unless cancelled by the end-user.
  • FY21 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 FY21 will need to be resubmitted as new requisitions in FY22.

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.
  • FY21 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 FY21. 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, 2021, and will be paid using FY21 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 FY22 monies. After approximately three weeks, only invoices above an amount set by Financial Services (approximately $15,000) will be paid using FY21 monies. When Period 12 is closed, only potential large payments (such as $50,000) will be paid using FY21 monies.

Purchase orders that were written in FY21 and invoiced in FY21 cannot be paid until the rollover for all purchase orders occurs. However, purchase orders written and invoiced in FY22 can be paid.

Requisitions generated in FY21 with an invoice coded in FY21 will be reviewed by a designated accountant. If the goods or services were received by June 30, 2021 the requisition should be cancelled, the invoice should be submitted on a payment request, and it will be paid using FY21 monies. If the goods or services were received after June 30, 2021 the invoice will be dated with the current date and will be paid using FY22 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.
