F26 Processing to Authorize Release of Blocked Invoice - 12/2/08

The new process for handling blocked invoices includes completing and submitting an F26, Request to Change Order form, to release the blocked invoice. The F26 has been updated to accommodate this process.

Some Purchasing staff have reported confusion regarding how to complete the F26. It should be filled out in full including:
-- checking the “Authorize the Release of a Blocked Invoice” box
-- explaining the situation
-- filling in the cost assignment and increase amount, not the invoice amount, under the increase side of the form.

More information about the F26 is available in Section 13 of the SRM Instructional Manual on the Purchasing Services Web site. An example of the F26 also is available online through the same Web site.
