2018 Year-End Processing Note

To help facilitate fiscal year-end processing and the Purchasing Encumbrance Rollover procedures for FY 2018 please note the following:

Based on the regular closing schedule for FY 2018 released by Dave Baugh:

1.  Purchase orders rolled into FY 2018 and still open will be closed.

2.  All open purchase orders with an open encumbrance of less than $5,000 will be closed with the exception of purchase orders created after May 11, 2018.

3.  Requisition entry deadline for FY18 is June 15, 2018.

3.  All open purchase orders with a funding distribution that has a change (new department ID, etc.) for the new fiscal year will be closed.

4.  Purchases under $4,500 should be made using the ProCard (unless restricted).

5.  June billing cycle ends on Thursday, June 21, 2018. All transactions that need to be charged to FY18 must be posted to the PNC account by June 21. It is recommended to place your year-end orders by June 14 as charges rarely post the same business day and can sometimes take several days to post. 

  • Wednesday, June 27- last day for departments to review/reallocate/approve June 2018 transactions in OnBase
  • Thursday, June 28- last day for Business Ops to review June 2018 transactions in OnBase
  • All transactions that post after June 21 will be funded from FY 2019.

The above applies to all purchase orders with the exception of capital construction and sub-grants. It should be noted that any invoices received after the deadline for purchase orders that have been closed will require a new requisition and purchase order for payment in the new fiscal year.

For invoices received for Personal Services Contracts (PSC) that have closed, a Payment Request will have to be entered in PeopleSoft to process the payment referencing the PSC number in the description.


There are a few tasks that each department can do to facilitate this process:

1.  First, be sure that receivers have been entered into the system only for the actual quantity received;

2.  Contact vendors if the item has been received, but the invoice has not been received and ask them to submit the invoice immediately;

3.  Review University Report UBM-16A in the Financials-Department-Detail folder and submit a Liquidation Request Form for any purchase order that is no longer needed;

4.  Please consider attending one of the Year-End training sessions for additional information regarding any changes in the new fiscal year.

 

We appreciate your cooperation and assistance with the year-end process.  If you have any questions regarding purchase orders and the above process please contact the buyer listed on the purchase order.  Thank you.
