Fiscal Year-End Deadlines Approaching

Fiscal Year-End Deadlines Approaching

Fiscal year-end is approaching, which means we must accurately account for the institution's financials before closing out the fiscal year on June 30, 2022. This includes ensuring that any funding that can possibly lapse (go back to the State) is accounted for properly. As a state entity, we are governed by certain purchasing policies and procedures, which include deadlines for purchases of varying dollar amounts. To ensure that expenditures are properly reported during the transition of fiscal years, we have deadlines for receiving transactional items. These deadlines, as listed below, are necessary to guarantee that transactions are properly executed and that our financials are appropriately reported.


Purchase Order cutoff dates:

  • April 22, 2022 - Non-contract requisitions over $100,000. (Non-contract items are not available on state or agency contracts.)
  • May 13, 2022 – Non-contract requisitions between $25,000 and $100,000
  • June 2, 2022– Requisitions up to $25,000, state or agency contract purchases for any amount.

e-Procurement will not allow requisitions to be entered after June 2, 2022.  Requisitions must be entered before 5 pm on June 2, 2022, in order to be processed.  Requisitions must also be approved and have a valid budget check by the dates above in order to provide adequate time for processing.  If you have any questions concerning whether items are non-contract or contract, please contact the Purchasing staff at 478-445-4458.

P-Card cutoff dates:

  • May 27, 2022 – All P-Card transactions occurring between April 28, 2022, through May 27, 2022, must be allocated and signed off by cardholders and approvers in Works.  P-Card purchases after this date will not be included in the FY 2022 budget.  This cutoff will help ensure that all transactions posted on or before this date are posted to your FY 2022 budgets.  There may be circumstances where a transaction is delayed and does not post until after the above date.  In those cases, the charge will be posted against your FY 2023 budget.  You can continue to use your card after the above date with the understanding that those charges will be posted against your FY 2023 budget.
  • June 10, 2022 – Signed P-card statements with receipts and approvals are due in the Purchasing Department by 5 pm.
