Cancel Action Options Include:
Re-Open Voucher(s)/Re-issue: Use to reselect the scheduled payments and reissue them the next time you run a pay cycle, assuming that the vouchers meet the selection criteria for that pay cycle.
IMPORTANT: If you reopen and reissue the voucher, the existing schedule payment will be cancelled in the Payment Posting process and a new schedule is added.
NOTE: If you decide to reopen vouchers and reissue, remember that you must run the Payment Posting process twice to record the reversal before those vouchers are available for a new payment selection. You can undo your cancellation, as long as the canceled payment is not posted.
Re-Open Voucher(s)/Put on Hold: Use to reopen the scheduled payments, but places the reopened scheduled payments on hold for your review. Select this option if you need to perform additional investigation or revise voucher information before proceeding with payment. A pay cycle process does not select the scheduled payments until the hold is removed on the Payments page of the Voucher component.
If you select this value, you must also select a reason code in the Hold Reason field.
Do Not Reissue/Close Liability: Use to cancel the payment and close any liabilities associated with it. The amount of the liability to close is calculated as the amount of unpaid liability remaining. The system takes into account whether the business unit is accounting at gross or net. The Payment Posting process identifies the voucher as process manual close, and the amount of the outstanding liability is reversed the next time the Voucher Processing process runs.
Cancel Reason: Specify a cancel reason for payment cancellations.
Hold Reason: Specify a hold reason for payment cancellations placed on hold. The system defaults this hold reason into the cancelled payment's new payment schedule. Select from the following: Accounting, Amount, CCR Expire (Central Contractor Registry supplier expiration), Cntrct Ret (contract return), Goods, IPAC (Intra-Governmental Payment and Collection System), Other, Quantity, and With hold (withholding hold).
