Fiscal Year (FY) 13/14 is now available for entering requisitions for the purchase of services being rendered and merchandise being delivered between 7/1/13 and 6/30/14.
To enter a FY 13/14 requisition, use SAP transaction ME51N (the same one your are currently using to enter 12/13 requisitions) and place a delivery date between 7/1/13 and 6/30/14 in the Delivery Date field. FY 13/14 requisitions will process without budget until 7/1/13, when budget availability checking for the new year is activated.
The Budget Office has sent Departmental Budget Allocation Worksheets to you for your completion and return to them by 5/13/13. Budget allocations for FY 13/14 should be posted by 7/1/13. This schedule will enable your department to continue daily operations in preparing for the new fiscal year.
Please keep in mind that while you are able to enter requisitions for FY 13/14, Procurement Services will still be processing FY 12/13 requisitions until June 30. Therefore, FY 12/13 requisitions will take priority over those received for the new fiscal year. If you are planning to enter additional FY 12/13 requisitions, we strongly recommend those requisitions be submitted as quickly as possible. Procurement Services must have sufficient processing time before June 30 to best meet your FY 12/13 procurement needs.
Please contact the staff of the Budget Office or Financial Operations for assistance if you have any problems or questions.
