This page provides instructions for how to change a PTA (not the Expenditure Type) on an approved purchase order (PO) with remaining funds of $2,500 or less. This will allow future invoices to be paid by that changed PTA line. For invoices that have already been processed, use iJournals to change the PTAE on past payments.

If there is an invoice matched to the existing PO but it is not yet paid, the PTA funds matched to that invoice cannot be changed. In these instances, a support request needs to be sent to request the invoice to be unmatched to allow those funds to be affected by the requested change. If you need to change either the Expenditure Type on a PO or a PTA on a PO with more than $2,500 remaining funds, you can submit a Standard Change Order.
