As this fiscal year reaches a close, many of you are evaluating your budgets and planning procurements. In order to provide the high level of customer support you expect from Procurement & Contract Services, the following deadlines will need to be adhered to.
April 3, 2017 – All Requests for Proposals utilizing funds which must be expended by year-end need to be submitted to Procurement & Contract Services no later than this date.
May 1, 2017 – All requisitions over $50,000 need to be submitted and approved prior to this date.
June 1, 2017 – All requisitions over $5,000 need to be submitted and approved prior to this date.
June 27, 2017 – All other requisition need to be submitted and approved prior to this date.
By helping us keep these deadlines, you ensure that you will receive fast, prompt service and your procurement requests will be completed prior to the end of the fiscal year.
Also, please remember that requisitions no longer encumber funds. Only encumbered funds roll into the new fiscal year. Everything must be submitted and approved by the deadlines above in order to ensure current fiscal year funds are utilized.
Thank you for your help in these matters.
