After July 30th, no further adjustments to the accrual period will be entered unless needed for accurate financial reporting to the auditors and approved by the Accounting Services Manger.

Begin reviewing your monthly accounting reports now and initiate any necessary corrections as soon as possible. Please note that you don’t need to wait for Accounting Services to distribute June reports. Instead, you can run your own reports as soon as June closes, or view your data through FAST Finance or Web4U Finance self-service. This will allow more time to generate the correcting journal vouchers before the closing period deadline.

A department charging for services such as Telecommunications, Motor Pool, Copy Services, Copier Support, Facilities, and Central Stores must submit uploads for June activity by July 3rd or by July 29th for accrual period entry. Work performed in June must be billed to fiscal 2015.

During the closing/accrual period, both FY15 and FY16 will be open simultaneously. It is important that Departments date Journal Vouchers and uploads 30-Jun-2015 to post to the accrual period of FY15. Using a July date on a JV will post it to FY16.

Contact Mike at x3675 or Diane at x4002 with any questions.
