E-NPO Changes Related to COVID-19

Governor Greg Abbott signed a state disaster declaration for all counties in Texas on Friday, March 13, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and Hays County is now under a Shelter-at-Home order. Additionally, the pandemic has been declared a Federal disaster. Texas State University leadership is making important decisions to prioritize the health and well-being of the Bobcat Community, while continuing the essential work of running a university. 

Since these declarations may result in eligibility for COVID-19 federal funds, Texas State made changes to the e-NPO screen to track costs and seek reimbursements upon availability of funds. On each e-NPO document, select Yes or No indicating whether the expense is related to COVID-19.  Note: The form will not allow you to list both types of expenses on the same e-NPO document. You will need to submit a separate form for non-COVID-19 expenses.  

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the new e-NPO procedures. These procedures will help the university identify COVID-19 costs and are in effect for the duration of the disaster declaration period.
