Accounts Payable Year-End Cutoff

Author: Carol Grontkowski

Due to the high volume of payment requests typically received by Accounts Payable near fiscal year end, please allow for the time needed to process such requests.  In keeping with the fiscal year-end closing schedule available at, please plan to have all payment requests submitted to Accounts Payable by Thursday, July 5th at 5PM in order to be processed in June business, if they relate to fiscal year 17/18 activity.  


For payment requests submitted via the Financial Toolkit, or Expense Reports submitted via TravelND; they must be approved by your department and received in the Accounts Payable queue by Thursday, July 5th at 5PM.   


For vendor invoices related to buyND Purchase Orders, the invoice must be received by Accounts Payable with the related Receipt entered in the buyND system by Thursday, July 5th at 5PM.


Please make others in your area aware of this timing.   Various sources were used to generate the distribution for this email, so I apologize if you received more than one copy.  


As always, use of the Procard for smaller dollar purchases is much appreciated!  If you have any questions or concerns about year end processing of your payment requests, please contact me.


Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
