|What To Do||How To Do it|
|A.||Run a PO Lookup within Kuali to check the PO Status||1. In Kuali find the PO Lookup Function
2. Type the Purchase Order #
3. If the PO is open, locate the document in Kuali and then close it by clicking the "close order" button. After the document has been fully approved the change will be reflected into the system the next day. AggieBuy PO's should close automatically if the PO is fully matched to the invoice. If your AggieBuy PO remains open check the PO # within KFS to ensure all invoices have been matched and reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for any invoicing questions. If your AggieBuy PO remains open because there were no payments/no activity and there is no "close order" button, reach out to AggieBuy help desk at email@example.com to Void the PO.

Note: Verify all invoices were properly matched to the PO. If there are missing invoices which were not matched to the PO, email Procurement Help.
