Change to Year-End Purchase Order (PO) Process

Effective with the FY13 Year-End Close, open POs in Funds 10, 12, 14, 16, 20 and 60 will no longer be closed after Accounts Payable completes processing for the year. Instead, these POs will be brought forward to FY14 and budget-checked against the chartfield for which they were requested creating an FY14 encumbrance. This addresses two pain points with year-end processing: 1) invoices submitted against POs closed by the old process after year-end require numerous AP / School / Department interaction to correctly charge the payment; and 2) vendors using the new JPMC automated payment tool will submit electronic invoices for closed POs and will encounter processing issues, thus delaying payment.
