July 8, 2022

Deadline to submit and approve expense reports containing expenses from June 2022. Due to possible delays in processing at year end, we encourage you to submit transactions received in June by June 30.  If you have June pcard transactions that post to your Concur account after June 30, you can submit your expense report as late as July 8, 2022.

July 16, 2022

Expenses containing July transactions will not be allowed to be submitted until July 16 or later

Purchasing Card

Cardholders will need to make sure expense reports in Concur are submitted and approved by the Concur dates listed above. Any transactions that post to your account after the deadlines can be put on next month's report.

Most transactions usually post within two or three days following the transaction date, however there can be delays to the posting caused by back orders or if the merchant waits to ship before charging the card. We recommend placing all of your orders as soon as possible in order to avoid delays in shipping that might cause transactions to post to your Concur account too late to be included in your 2021-2022 expense report. 

Invoices (Accounts Payable)

Contact Accounts Payable x18010 with any questions about invoice payments.

Please make sure to approve your invoices in OnBase in a timely manner to ensure they are processed in the correct fiscal year. Invoices need to be approved by July 8 in order to be charged to fiscal year 2021-2022. Any invoices approved after July 8 will be charged to fiscal year 2022-2023.

If you are approving an invoice in OnBase and would like to pick up the check, please indicate that request in the Comments field at the bottom of the Department Voucher (even if that information was provided on the requisition/PO). Accounts Payable will only see this request if it is submitted on the Department Voucher for your invoice.
