This is a reminder that the State of Alabama’s fiscal year-end is September 30, 2008 and as such, that the accounting records of the University will be closed for the period.
The cutoff for receipt in the Purchasing Department of regular requisitions will be September 12, 2008. An item requiring bid takes much longer to process; therefore, bid requests must be received in the Purchasing Department no later than September 5, 2008. For any expenditure that is to be covered by the fiscal 2007-2008 budget, the item must be physically received by the University and, in order to ensure timely processing, all documents (receiving reports, invoices, etc.) must be received in the Accounts Payable Department by Monday, September 22, 2008. If an item is received by the University after September 22, 2008, please forward all documents to the Accounts Payable Department as soon as possible.
