Dual Processing

Users create all new Purchase Requisitions in the new NC eProcurement AOD platform. Users may still reduce quantity on change orders, cancel purchase orders, close purchase orders, and enter receipts within 9R1. All unapproved requisitions will be withdrawn from 9R1 to release the encumbrance in NCAS.

September 30, 2020

Old System becomes Read-Only

To release the encumbrance, all Purchase Orders still in “Ordered” status in 9R1 will be cancelled, and all remaining Purchase Orders in “Receiving” status will be changed automatically to match the already received quantity.

Fiscal Year 2021

Old System is Retired

All new actions occur in AOD. Users will have read-only access to 9R1 to view previous transactions until 9R1 is retired. After 9R1 is retired, historical data will then be accessed through the Government Data Analytics Center (GDAC).
