Holiday and Implementation Planning

Buyers, its not too early to consider the purchasing requirements for your department(s) for the remainder of the calendar year and into 2022.  Consider the UMW Holiday Calendar, NextGen training that is expected to occur in November, and the very short month we have in December for deliveries and payment.  Perhaps you can order some supplies early to allow your focus on training and less stress for you in early January when mastering the new system.

    The last check run before Thanksgiving break is November 23rd with checks dated 11/29/21.
    The last check run before Winter break will be December 16th with checks dated 12/17 and 12/20.

    If your department can manage it, December 2021 can be your ‘black out’ month. Perhaps supplies or services not required until 2022 can be entered in January. We will offer scheduled Lab and Zoom sessions to assist buyers with the new NextGen entries. Contact Procurement if you need assistance with purchase order planning.
