Relieving a Commitment [Requisition] Encumbrance

If a requisition encumbrance is showing on the latest 163 or 164 report, be sure the following actions have been taken:

  • “Delete” the Rejected Purchase Order
  • “Return” the associated requisition to the Requisitioner

NOTE: Deleting a purchase order relieves the PO encumbrance and returning the requisition relieves the Commitment encumbrance.

For detailed instructions on how to delete a rejected purchase order or return a requisition go to http://www.finance.upenn.edu/benknows/browse_topics/purchase_order_definitions/po_rejected.shtml and click on one on the scenarios.

After completing the steps above, rerun the 163 or 164.ORG: Open Encumbrances report to confirm the commitment encumbrance has been relieved.
