Contracts, Purchasing & Surplus Inventory

Travel/Requisitions/PCard Entry (Operating Unit Will Default to “0”)

For efficiency and streamlining of data processing, the University will only be using the single value of “0” beginning fiscal year 2017 (July 1, 2016).  The new chart of accounts functionality provides information that the operating unit was used for in the past. 

All Pcard transactions that post on 7/01/2016 or later should be reviewed with operating unit “0”.  If you have any questions, contact Purchasing at (509-963-1505).
For entering Travel and Requisitions accounting detail information, you will only need to enter the Speed Key.  The Operating Unit field will default in as “O” after you enter your Speed Key.

User guides for Requisitions and Travel will be updated to indicate the new information.
For requisition questions, please contact Purchasing Office (509-963-1002) or email

For travel questions, please contact the Travel Desk (509-963-1986) or email

There will be a transition period and reports may show the old operating units and the new value of 0.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact Chris Huss at x1997.
