Encumbrance Removal Request

Encumbrance Removals
  • An encumbrance removal liquidates a purchase order balance from an index and places it back in available budget.
  • Encumbrance removals are most commonly needed when a purchase order was previously canceled or when Lehigh has been invoiced at a lesser total amount than the original purchase order
  • Financial Managers and Business Managers are encouraged to periodically report on their index activity to locate aged, open encumbrances.
  • An alternative to the DocuSign form below is Unimarket's "Close" feature.  Please view the New PO Features tutorial for more information
  • Use the DocuSign form to request that the Purchasing Team remove an encumbrance that is no longer needed.
