What is a NOPO?
NOPO refers to a “no post” status placed on a funds center that has a zero balance and is no longer being used by a department. There is no form to be filled out when requesting a NOPO status on a funds center. Departments simply send an email to their FAST Team representative with the details of the account and the reason for the request. At the time of requesting a “no post” on a funds center, you should also consider whether any corresponding CC’s or IO’s also need to be blocked.
The nopo is only valid or applicable for the current fiscal year. Another request via email will need to be sent to the FAST Team if the status is to continue in the next fiscal year. The risk of not renewing the NOPO status is limited to the possibility of payroll and credit transactions being posted to the account. All other transactions that are subject to funds availability checking would be prohibited without the nopo status. For this reason, funds center accounts still require monitoring throughout the fiscal year.
