UPDATE: Open Purchase Orders CLOSED in error on Oct 10, 2018


Published: 17Oct2018

This message is sent on behalf of François Pouliot, Director Procurement Services and Julie Ghayad, Director Finance Infrastructure and Transaction Services

Dear Colleagues,

Further to the memo sent last week, we would like to inform you that all Purchase Orders that were CLOSED in error will be re-opened and encumbrances re-instated by end of day tomorrow, Thursday, October 18, 2018.

In order to achieve this, the following accesses will be removed on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 11:45 AM:

  • The McGill MarketPlace (MMP) will be unavailable

  • Banner Finance Users will be unable to process journals, IDC’s, manual encumbrances, and invoices (i.e. Banner Forms: FGAJCVQ, FGAJVCD, FGAENCB, FAAINVE)

The above accesses will be re-instated Friday, October 19, 2018 at 9:00 AM, at which time Financial and Procurement Services will be in a position to start processing invoices and change orders against the re-opened Purchase Orders. We estimate that it will take 5-7 business days to catch up.

We thank you for your patience during this time.

Francois and Julie
