Subject Cancelling POs

Message Text: Several agencies have reported an issue when cancelling Purchase Orders (POs). Once a PO is cancelled, the process is not releasing the requisition to allow it to be resourced. Additionally, if a contract is tied to the PO, it is not releasing the dollars back to the contract. The cancellation does, however, release the encumbrance related to the PO. Until this is resolved, if a PO must be cancelled and the requisition needs to be resourced, you should enter a new requisition. The SMART Team continues to work on this issue and will inform you when it is resolved.
