Checking a Purchase Orders Status

  1. Purchasing > My Purchase Order
  2. The Status column reflects the current status of the PO.
    1. Unsubmitted means it is a draft. Complete any missing fields and Submit the PO to queue it for approval.
    2. Waiting for Approval. POs from budget accounts are approved by the Business Office. POs from activity accounts require approval from an AP and the School Bookkeeper.
    3. Batch is a temporary status between approval and Open status and most POs will not remain in the status for long.
    4. Open are approved and encumbered POs waiting to be invoiced.
    5. History POs are closed POs that were either invoiced or the Business Office was directed to close them because they were no longer valid.
