Mass closure of inactive purchase orders

May 12, 2021

To reduce the volume of obsolete commitments and obligations, Procurement plans to perform a mass closure of inactive purchase orders (POs) beginning Monday, May 24, 2021. Criteria for the mass closure will be:

  • The purchase order was created on or before March 31, 2020; and
  • The purchase order has had no changes or invoice activity since July 15, 2020.

If a purchase order service line with infrequent activity is closed and must be reopened, submit a requisition to Yale Purchasing Services by June 21, 2021, to reopen the PO. Closed purchase orders cannot be reopened after June 30.

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