H1B going to be filed and passport expiring on Nov, 2017. Can I renew it post document submission?

My H1B will be filed this year by my company, and my passport will expire on 7th Nov 2017. Is it fine if I submit documents on this passport and renew it once the process is over, or do I need to renew it before the document submission process starts?

I am having similar issue, Mine is to expire in Sep 2017. Viewers please help.
