Purchase Orders

Review and submit all unsigned completed purchase orders as an email attachment to aptuc@csun.edu. Please remove or redact any level 1 protected data information on the form (https://www.csun.edu/it/protected-data) if there are any. TUC Accounts Payable will then route the forms via Adobe Sign for signature approval.

Any purchase orders submitted after June 18, 2021 will be processed on July 1, 2021 to give our staff time to properly encumber pending purchase order prior to year-end.

Report all individual expenses over $5,000 that were incurred in Fiscal Year 2020/21 but not yet booked as actual expenditures to me or to your Post-Award liaison.

Please report each expense allocating it to an account, fund, department and project ID, providing a description of the expense and the time the expense is incurred. Please ensure that you meet the July 2nd deadline. Expenditures incurred in Fiscal Year 2020/21 and not reported to TUC by this due date will not be included, and therefore, would misstate our financial statement.
