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 7 for requisitions >$25K to <$150K
  • Friday, September 14 for requisitions <$25K
  • Tuesday, September 18 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.
  • Purchases >$150K in total procurement value may take 3 to 6 months or more to process depending on complexity.
  • Purchases >$500K in total procurement value may take 6 months or more to process depending on complexity.
  • Requisitions approved after the key dates will be processed once all all approved requisitions submitted prior to the cut-off dates have been processed by Procurement.
  • For information and key dates related to FY18 receiving and service accruals, contact your division resource analyst and/or the Fiscal Year-End Close Wiki (click here to access).
