The NSF Override request is an override process used to prevent delays associated with emergency procurement only. An override is rarely needed. Generally, NSF suspensions can be avoided through proper budget controls, regular monitoring of budget authority, and regular monitoring and processing of incomplete documents. When budget is unavailable within the current budget authority, a budget revision should be requested proactively so that budget is available when and where it is needed.
In situations in which a document is NSF, but does not constitute an emergency, the financial manager need only submit a budget revision to make budget available. Once the budget revision is entered, the user may access and complete the document. Please see the instructions for more information on how to properly complete a budget revision.
All NSF Override requests must include written, detailed justification.
By submitting the NSF Override request form, you certify that you have the authority to commit university funds, funds will be made available for this expenditure, and it is an emergency procurement.
