Fiscal Year 2011–2012 is now available for entering requisitions for the purchase of services being rendered and merchandise being delivered between July 1, 2011, and June 30, 2012.
To enter a Fiscal Year 2011–2012 requisition, use SAP Transaction ME51N (the same one you are currently using to enter 2010–2011 requisitions), and place a delivery date between 07/01/11 and 06/30/12 in the Delivery Date field. Fiscal Year 2011–2012 requisitions will process without budget until July 1, 2011, when Budget Availability Checking for the new year is activated.
The Budget Office has sent departmental budget allocation worksheets to you for your completion. Return them to the Budget Office by May 20, 2011. Budget allocations for FY 2011–2012 should be posted by July 1, 2011. 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 2011–2012, Procurement Services will still be processing FY 2010–2011 requisitions until June 30. Therefore, FY 2010–2011 requisitions will take priority over those received for the new fiscal year. If you are planning to enter additional FY 2010–2011 requisitions, it is strongly recommended that those requisitions be submitted as quickly as possible. Procurement Services must have sufficient processing time before June 30 to best meet your FY 2010–2011 procurement needs.
Please contact the staff of the Budget Office or Financial Operations for assistance if you have any problems or questions.
