Top Issues

  • NEW! October Month-End Close Deadline:  Validated campus journal entries and data collect batches (journal imports) should be received by Accounting Services by close of business Friday, Oct. 30. It is critical that journal imports with state funds are submitted on or before this date.
  • REMINDER! Upcoming Release of the Payroll Accounting Adjustment Tool (PAAT): PAAT will be released in late October to replace the Short Term Retro tool used since last spring.  Find out more about upcoming deadlines for actions in this tool and the timeline for the release of PAAT.

    Remember that Oct. 19 is the deadline to submit all actions, including approvals, for the short term retro tool. There will be an outage period of Oct. 20-27 when users cannot enter any retro actions. View the related web page or the related memo.

  • NEW! Web Travel/P-Card Access:  A memo was sent today to MOU Financial Leads and Access Request Coordinators (ARCs) about changes to Web Travel and P-Card access.  The InfoPorte Access Request Tool and the Finance System Access Form have been updated accordingly.
  • REMINDER! Manual Checks: Information about a new manual check procedure and the accompanying form was sent to campus users earlier today.  The purpose of the creating manual checks is to (1) generate an omitted payment for a newly hired employee or (2) to correct a payment for an employee who did not receive a correct payment
  • NEW! Extended System Outage: There will be an outage of all ConnectCarolina applications (Finance, HR/Payroll, Student Admin) plus most other related applications (including CBM/Bill Presentation, Web Travel, P-Card, and ImageNow) and PID services on Sun., Oct. 11, 1 p.m. to midnight. Note the extended hours.
