Per the Controller's Office policy, an item should be received before JUNE 30 to be encumbered in the current fiscal year, regardless of whether the order is under $2500 (SOF) or over (PO). Therefore, we ask that all Service Requests for furniture be submitted by MAY 1 in order to allow enough time to meet/discuss your needs, get quotes, approvals, orders placed, and have the items delivered/installed and invoiced prior to June 30. Please note that even with this May 1 deadline, certain items may need to be "quick ship" (ie. in stock) and therefore limited in size and finish options.
You can read the Controller's Year-End Closing Guidelines here.
