Purchase Order (PO) and Requisition Closeouts

As the end of the fiscal year approaches, please note that you can complete purchase order closeouts by using the Close Purchase Orders Form. Go to the B2P homepage, and under MIT Buying and Paying Resources, choose “Close PO” to access the form.

If you need an SAP PO closed, please email VPF closeouts and include the purchase order number(s). SAP will update the status of all POs that were closed out in the system before 10:30 pm that day.
If you have questions or comments regarding this tool, please email
