Payments Against FY 2020 Purchase Orders

FY 2020 purchase orders are to be used only for the payment of goods received or services rendered on or before, Friday, June 30, 2020.

All staff that have created requisitions and/or purchase orders during the year should immediately begin a review of all FY 2020  purchase orders currently open. Determine if there are any outstanding invoices for goods received or services rendered through the current period that have not yet been paid.

Continue to monitor open purchase orders and outstanding invoices through June 30, 2020. Vendors should be contacted if invoices have not been received. All outstanding invoices should be forwarded by the originating office or by the vendor to the Accounts Payable Office as soon as possible, but no later than Wednesday, July 1, 2020 to be paid before the open balances on the FY 2020 purchase orders are closed out.
