ready to be selected for Purchase Order processing. Final Approval triggers an email notification to Requester

Category Code & Accounts
 For Non-Project Purchases – The requisition will go
through even if that account has no funds. This may
cause a budget issue later for the department.
 For Project Purchases – If the account does not have
available funds the requisition will go into budget error
and will not source over to Purchasing. The requester
must arrange for a budget transfer to make sure that
there is funding in the account to cover the purchase.
Budget Status
Valid – Budget is available and ready.
Not Chk’d – Indicates that it has not been Budget Checked.
Error – No budget available. Contact your Budget Manager. They
should check Commitment Control and add budget to correct account
you are charging.
Exceeds Budget Tolerance and Budget Date out of Bounds are two
common errors associated to Project funding transactions.

Three Way Matching
Purchase Order
Three Way Matching
1. The PO is always created first from a Requisition.
2. The merchandise is received in good order either by Central
Receiving, Scientific Receiving, or the Department.
3. The invoice is received and entered into PantherSoft by the Accounts
Payable team of the Controller’s Office.
Three Way Matching
Will AP pay the supplier without the supplier having provided the
service or merchandise?
Absolutely Not! Because of the Three Way Matching rule, until the
department enters into the system and receives against the PO, the
payment will never leave the University. In effect the department
controls when payments are made by controlling the receiving of the
merchandise or service.
Three Way Matching
 Original Invoices must be sent to Accounts Payable.
 A paper invoice by Interoffice Mail or scanned & emailed to
[email protected] is required for payment.
 Some Suppliers send the invoice before the merchandise
arrives or the service is rendered.
 There is a State of Florida Regulation, FS 215.422-3a-c, which
allows a vendor to receive additional Interest Payment on all
open balances over 40 days from the date of the accepted
Reviewing the entire process
1. Requisition is done and approved.
2. A PO was dispatched.
3. The merchandise was delivered.
4. A receipt was entered against the PO.
5. The Invoice came in and It was delivered to the
Accounts Payable team in the Controller’s Office.
