Action Needed: Purchase Orders with Invalid Chart String Combinations

Dear Rutgers Colleague,

As we prepare for the July 1, 2018 chart of accounts changes – activating cross validation rules (CVR) and deactivating invalid chart string combinations – University Procurement Services has been working with units to correct or close purchase orders (POs) with invalid chart string combinations. In the coming weeks and months, Procurement will continue with the next phase of work to correct POs and PO lines that have prior activity.

Beginning on June 25, Procurement will update individual transactions to incorporate alternate accounting with updated chart string combinations. This will permit us to continue processing the PO and related activities, such as invoice posting after July 1. The transactions that will be updated are available on the chart of accounts initiative page.

Actions You May Need to Take

Thank you for your attention and assistance with this matter.
