Use the Close Requisitions process to close requisitions that are fully canceled or fully sourced and no longer need to be modified. When you run the Close Requisitions process, it reconciles requisition-related settings and statuses to change the status of applicable requisitions to C (completed). 

The benefit of this status change is that completed requisitions no longer appear in your list of available requisitions when you access requisition pages in update or display mode. These completed requisitions are also removed from the view in many other situations in which the available options have been set to exclude completed or canceled requisitions. Removing these requisitions from these prompts improves system performance and decreases the time required to find requisitions that you must modify. 

If commitment control is enabled, the Close Requisitions process also sets the budget header and line statuses, the KK_CLOSE_FLAG option, and PROCESS_MANUAL_CLOSE option accordingly so that the Commitment Control Budget Processor process (FS_BP) can liquidate pre-encumbrance budget amounts for outstanding requisitions. 

Although the Close Requisitions process is optional and you can run it at any time, you should run the process at the end of each month to help improve the efficiency of your requisitioning process. Schedule the Close Requisitions process to run at an interval of your choosing using the ctcLink Process Scheduler or run it manually using the Close Requisitions page.

Use the Close Requisitions page to run the Close Requisitions process and produce the Requisition Reconciliation report.
