Fiscal Year-End Purchasing Notes

June 12, 2003 :: Jeff Rusling, Computer Connection

Since Computer Connection invoicing occurs internally through BEN Financials, the date that your department needs to place orders and be invoiced by varies slightly from the ones required for vendors external to the University. Details regarding the end-of-year billing for purchases from the Computer Connection have been posted to our website at

Importantly, University guidelines stipulate that the Computer Connection cannot pass charges for merchandise that we do not have available in-stock for delivery by the close of the fiscal year. As such, any items remaining unshipped by June 30th will be charged to FY '04 (next fiscal year). If your order is date-sensitive, you may wish to consider placing through the Computer Connection rather than directly through Apple and Dell--historically, this has proven beneficial in having the manufacturers prioritize the order processing.

All orders placed in June are actively managed by the Computer Connection staff and we will work closely with our vendors to prioritize shipping and make special delivery arrangements to accommodate end-of-fiscal year.
