You have the ability to close purchase orders and their encumbrances without entering a final payment in Post or Batch Accounts Payable. You have the option to close an entire purchase order or selected line items within a purchase order. When you close an item, the system liquidates the encumbrance and changes the item's status to C (for closed).

Identifying Open PO/Encumbrances

  1. Main Menu→ Fund Accounting→ Reports→ Financial Statements→ Encumbrance Status Report
    1. It is recommended to not enter in a date range to make sure you are cleaning up everything that is necessary

    This report shows you what POs/Encumbrances are open. There is a separate line for each line of the PO that is still open. If you check mark the 'Subtotal by Encumbrance' on the report criteria you will get a PO total as well. To be sure that a 'Non-PO Payment' option was choose in Accounts Payable you will want to check the vendor history to see if that amount has already been paid. If the 'Non-PO Payment' option is chosen, the PO does not get closed.
