Match Exception Rules for NUFinancials

This document lists match exception rules, description, business explanation, and potential resolutions for each one.

Match Exception Rules

Match exception rules appear in emails sent to Requestors when match exceptions exist to be resolved. They also appear on the Cognos BI SC027 Match Exception Report by Department and in NUFinancials inquiries, the Voucher Inquiry and the Match Exception Workbench.




Business Explanation

Potential Resolutions


No receipts found

Acknowledge the order was filled acceptably.

Rule 100 refers to non-catalog purchases over $500 only. No receipts were found for the purchase order specified on the voucher line.

  • Enter receipts after delivery when you are satisfied with the goods or services.
  • Partial receipts are possible.


Life To Date (LTD) voucher quantity is greater than the PO quantity with receipt tolerance

Ensure the vendor did not double invoice.

LTD Rules 330, 380, and 390 refer to differences in quantity or amount between the voucher, PO, and possibly the receipt. The history of invoices is considered.

Rules 490 and 500 refer to differences in price, quantity, and/or amount between lines on the PO and voucher.

There are several potential resolutions:

  • Correct the PO with a PO Change Request by increasing the price or quantity. Find the amount of the difference in related Cognos BI reports or NUFinancials inquiries.
  • If the receipt is incorrect, update the quantity or amount received. Consult Purchasing training documents for the correct receipts screen for your circumstances.
  • If the vendor's invoice is incorrect, ask the vendor to issue a correct invoice and send it to AP. You may also ask for a courtesy copy. (If you do not have a copy of the invoice to review initially, contact AP.) When AP receives the correct inovice, they will correct the voucher or delete it and enter a new one.
  • If the voucher is incorrect, contact AP and explain the issue. AP will make the correction.
