Year-End Purchase Order Encumbrances

Purchasing and Contracts reminds those responsible for preparing purchase orders and reviewing purchase order encumbrances of the following information as the end of the current fiscal year approaches.

Standing Purchase Order Fiscal Year Transfer Procedures

If you currently have Standing Purchase Orders for Fiscal Year 14 and wish to transfer them to Fiscal Year 15, the Standing Order Fiscal Year Transfer Form can be found on the Purchasing and Contracts web page at http://www.unco.edu/purchasing. Be certain to have an authorized signator(s) sign the form for all accounts that are represented on the form. Completed forms should be sent to Purchasing and Contracts, CB 61, no later than noon on June 11.

Note that a UNC Visa card may be used for services and recurring payments that do not exceed $5,000 per month. This should eliminate the need for standing purchase orders for these items. All agreements for services must still be renewed and approved by purchasing and contracts staff.

Reviewing Purchase Order Encumbrances Reminder

Please review FGIOENC purchase order encumbrances. Send an e-mail to morgan.gray@unco.edu or mary.jantz@unco.edu listing the Fiscal Year 14 POs you wish to remain open as well as the purchase orders you want to be liquidated. This information is needed prior to July 3.

Please contact Morgan Gray at 351-2287 or morgan.gray@unco.edu with questions.

Microsoft Tech Support Phone Scam Warning

UNC's Information Security Team has learned that several northern Colorado residents, including a UNC employee, recently received a phone call at home from someone saying they were from Microsoft tech support. The calls are a scam. The caller says that your computer has a virus or is "running slow" and that they would like to help. They then request access to your computer via a remote meeting to install software and may offer to sell you an antivirus program.

What they are really doing is attempting to phish you or use social engineering to gain access to your credit cards and bank accounts.

If someone claiming to be from Microsoft tech support calls you:

  • Do not purchase any software or services.
  • Never give control of your computer to a third party unless you can confirm that it is a legitimate representative of a computer support team with whom you are already a customer.
  • Take the caller's information down and immediately report it to your local authorities.
  • Never provide your credit card or financial information to someone claiming to be from Microsoft tech support.

More information on phishing and social engineering is available on the UNC Information Security website.
