Relieving a Commitment [Requisition] Encumbrance on a Returned Requisition

If a commitment encumbrance appears on the latest 163 report, be sure the following steps have been done:

  • Verify the encumbrance is still in the general ledger
  • Delete the Rejected Purchase Order
  • Return the associated requisition (this action should relieve the encumbrance)
  • AND
  • Re-run the 163 or 164.ORG: Open Encumbrances report

If the requisition encumbrance still remains, contact BEN Helps at 6-HELP (746.4357) so it can be investigated.
