Mass closure of inactive Purchase Orders

June 10, 2020

To reduce the volume of obsolete commitments and obligations, Yale Procurement plans to perform a mass closure of inactive purchase orders (PO) beginning the week of June 15, 2020. 

Criteria for the mass closure will be:

  • PO was created on or before March 31, 2019; and
  • PO has had no changes or invoice activity since July 15, 2019.

If a purchase order service line with infrequent activity is closed and needs to be reopened, submit a requisition to Yale Purchasing Services by Friday, June 26 requesting the PO be reopened. Closed POs cannot be reopened after Tuesday, June 30, 2020.

If questions regarding the mass PO closure, please contact the Finance Support Center through email at or 203-432-5394.
