Suppress a purchase order commitment when you or the PTA's Task Manager have determined that certain commitments should not appear in Oracle Financials reports.

Caution:  You CANNOT reverse the Suppress action. Be certain you really want to do this.


What's Next?

  • The total remaining commitment is immediately decreased in the Commitment View of the Query. The date that you suppressed the commitment and your SUNet ID will be displayed.
  • Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) Consolidated Expenditure Reports (CER) will reflect your changes the next day. The commitment will no longer appear on the reports.
  • If Accounts Payable later receives an invoice for this Purchase Order, they WILL be able to process it and it WILL be reflected as an actual expenditure; suppressing the commitment merely removes it from your reports.
  • For additional information, including details on the automated commitment clean-up process, see Overview: Purchasing Commitments.
