FY17 Year-End – Procurement Key Dates

Fiscal Year-End is Approaching

Please be Mindful of Key Procurement Dates!

As fiscal year-end approaches, we ask that you submit your year-end requisitions per the following guidance.

Purchase requisitions must be approved in FMS by the following key dates in order to be dispatched by fiscal year-end.

  • Friday, September 8 for requisitions >$25K to <$150K
  • Friday, September 15 for requisitions < or equal to $25K
  • Tuesday, September 19 for eBuy requisitions

We will do all that we can to process your requisitions as quickly as possible. Please note the following:

  • Take into consideration the total procurement value, not just the requisition total
  • Issuing purchase orders for requisitions >$150K can take 2 to 4 months or more depending on the complexity. Please plan accordingly.
  • Approved requisitions received by Procurement after the key dates will be processed only if all approved requisitions submitted prior to the cut-off dates have been processed
  • For information and key dates related to FY17 receiving and service accruals, contact your division resource analyst and/or the Fiscal Year-End Close Wiki (click here to access)

Should you have a critical need or an emergency situation after the key dates, please contact the appropriate Procurement Manager:
