To improve the quality of open commitment data used in budget management, we are changing certain processes within the PantherExpress System. This began on April 7 with the automatic closure of fully-invoiced Purchase Orders (POs), as part of a previously-scheduled system upgrade. System process changes and features will be rolled out between April and July, along with training, resources, and documentation.
