How to Close Purchase Orders (POs)

A department should contact its Dean's Office if it wants to close a purchase order.

The Dean's Office will consider approval based on extenuating circumstances or whether it's related to closing out a grant. The Dean's Office will consult the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs regarding grant closeouts as necessary.

If approved, the Dean's Office will submit to its request to close the PO to Accounting Services via the form, Encumbrance and Purchase Order Management, available on the Accounting Services Forms page.
See the Purchase Order Closeout Policy and the Purchase Order Closeout Procedure for more information.
