This document provides the steps for validating the Contract ID during PO creation and PO approval. Reviewing and validating that a user has selected the appropriate Contract ID is a critical step in the PO creation and PO approval process. If a user selects the incorrect Contract ID, funds will be encumbered against a contract in error.

This document also provides a basic understanding on how a PO releases funds from the contract and the options available to make corrections if a PO is released from the incorrect Contract ID.
