Please circulate this memorandum within your department to any faculty or staff member that has responsibility for submitting requisitions to Procurement & Payment Services. Please note new changes in deadlines for submission.
This memo serves as a reminder of the deadlines for submission of requisitions against fiscal year 2012-2013 allocations. The deadlines apply to State funding, income fund reimbursable (IFR) accounts, dormitory fund reimbursable (DIFR) accounts, rehabilitation or construction projects, and anything else processed through Procurement & Payment Services on a requisition form. The deadlines are necessary to insure sufficient processing time before the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 2013. Between April and September of each year, the workload for Procurement & Payment Services becomes very heavy due to a high number of fiscal year-end requisitions and the requirement to expedite subsequent deliveries and payments prior to established State deadlines.
Deadlines for submitting requisitions are as follows:
Any requisition submitted as exceptions to these deadlines must be sent to the attention of Mark Stacy, Procurement & Payment Services, and must include a written request for exemption explaining why the requisition was not submitted prior to the deadline. Each requisition will then be forwarded to Karen Riotto, Assistant Vice President for Administration & Finance, for review and approval. Requisitions that do not include the written request for exemption will be returned with instructions for resubmittal after the start of the next fiscal year, or in the case of reimbursements, processing from non-State funds.
It is not necessary to spend 2012-2013 funding with the fear that the funds will disappear. The following explains how unexpended funds are handled at the end of a fiscal year:
All unexpended balances for Personal Service Regular (PSR) overtime/holiday, temporary services, and S&E are returned to the respective divisional vice president. At the vice president’s discretion these funds may be reallocated to divisional priorities for the next fiscal year.
All unexpended balances for PSR overtime/holiday, temporary services, and S&E are returned to the DIFR fund for program priorities. No balances are returned to the vice president.
IFR and Summer Session Accounts
All unexpended cash balances remain in the IFR and Summer Session accounts and are rolled over to the next fiscal year, except for the following:
