Fiscal Accounting standards require all expenses be recorded in the same fiscal year that the goods and services are received. Processing purchasing and financial documents in accordance with the posted schedules allows the financial statements and financial reports to be completed in a timely manner. All travel, services provided, or supplies ordered and/or received prior to June 30 must be requisitioned in the period ending June 30. This guideline is regardless of funding source.

If you have any questions about the deadlines or the procedures, please contact Damon Nunn, Director of Purchasing.
