7  For each of the Open PO’s on your grant:  If the good isn’t here yet, contact vendor to expedite  Is the PO still good? If it’s no longer going to be purchased, contact Purchasing & have them cancel the PO (liquidate blanket PO’s if not using them)  If you believe you have already received the item(s)/service on the PO, check with Accounts Payable (A/P) to see if they are missing any documentation  If you don’t recognize the Vendor Name and/or amount, look up the PO in FPIPURR for more information Mistakes can happen & you don’t want to foot the bill for someone else’s grant! 7

13  Review the amounts in the Activity column and Available Balance  Do these amounts look about right? If something seems high or low, look at the detail in the Activity column (see Slide # 12) If expenses hit the wrong line (or you don’t think they’re yours), contact the Chief Accountant for Grants (Tracy or x2244)  For any negative Available Balances, budget modifications should be made Email Tracy ( and indicate which accounts you need to move budget dollars between & specify whether Funding Source approval is necessary for the change to be 13
