Reminder: Review your Requisition Status in CUNYfirst for Proper Invoice Payment

As noted in previous News Blast communications, February 27th, was the cutoff date to submit all requisitions into CUNYfirst that will be charged to FY 2014-15.

This relates to all procurement items exclusive of travel expenses which are processed in the separate Travel and Expense system. Purchasing will only create a Purchase Order for requisitions with a Valid Budget Status as of February 27th.

Check the Budget Status of Requisition(s)

As we approach year-end, it is strongly advised that each department 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 Andre Mendell to assist. The Subject line should read, "Budget Error, Dept.# _ _ _ _ _". In the email itself, be sure to include the requisition number.
