How to Check the Budget Status of Requisition(s)

Periodically, each department should check the Budget Status of their requisition(s) via the  Managed Requisitions screen in CUNYfirst to monitor progress and ensure the requisition is not in budget error status. If the requisition is in budget error, please email Rashmi Malesh and Hasson Gordon to assist. The Subject line should read, "Budget Error, Dept.# _ _ _ _ _". In the email be sure to include the requisition number.
