Helpful Tips for Purchase Order Management

  • Q: How can I quickly determine the orders I have encumbered?

A: Check out the SSRS Web "Open Encumbrances" report. The report will list your order numbers, vendor names, original amounts and remaining balances. It can be easily exported into Excel for further review. Tip: Users can gain the required access to run the report by completing the Oracle Reporting form, including supervisor's signature, and forwarding it to John Cooper (cooperj@uncw.edu).

  • Q: Who do I contact to liquidate residual balances or close purchase orders?

A: Send an e-mail or uShop comment to Purchasing (purchasing@uncw.edu) requesting the balance be liquidated and the order closed. Be sure to include the PO number(s) and if the vendor needs to be notified (as in the case of a back-ordered item). Tip: Orders with less than $2 remaining open will be closed as part of our routine batch-close process.

  • Q: Are there reports in uShop that show my open orders that need receiving or invoices?

A: Yes! There are four (4) different reports to choose from depending on the information you are seeking. To locate the reports follow the instructions below:
