Top Issues

  • NEW!  March Month-End Close:  Central offices have officially closed the month of March. This includes the transmission and reconciliation of all March transactions, and state approval to close the month.
  • April Month-End Close Deadline:  Journal entries, data collect batches and journal imports should be received by Accounting Services by close of business on Thursday, April 30.
  • REMINDER! Campus Journals:   Accounts that are in error cannot be changed through the campus journal.  If you have an account that was incorrectly charged in error, you need to contact Disbursement Services at  Remember that accounts can only be changed from one expense account to another expense account.  You cannot change an expense account to an asset, liability or revenue account.  This rule is mentioned on page 18 of the Campus Journals Student Guide used in training and found online.
  • CLARIFICATION! Fringe Projections:  In an April 21 memo to campus re fringe projections now available in InfoPorte, a suggestion was made that, “Individuals who manage sponsored projects for which the project end date is later than June 30, 2015, may use information on anticipated costs per month to calculate anticipated labor costs after that date.”  As a point of clarification, using “information on anticipated costs per month to calculate anticipated labor costs” should not be done for future months with three biweekly pay dates.  Using a monthly rate would result in two biweekly periods being un-projected and therefore unaccounted for.  Users who manage sponsored projects and are projecting personnel encumbrances for several years should be aware of this caveat.
