Annual and Monthly Closing Schedules

Monthly Closing schedules


It’s time to finalize activities related to the annual closing of the fiscal year, June 30, 2019.  Year-end closing requires the coordinated efforts of Procurement, the Controller’s Office, Treasurer's Office, Business Affairs and campus departments, to ensure that all financial activity is accurately recorded.

Departments should review the activity in their indexes now, verifying that all purchase orders, invoices, travel expenses and other charges have been recorded accurately and any corrections that need to be made are processed.  Before closing it is also necessary to ensure the accuracy of any outstanding encumbrances for the year.  Please notify the Controller’s Office to close any outstanding travel encumbrances, and Procurement to close outstanding purchase orders that should be closed.

In order to properly record expenses in the appropriate accounting period and prevent extended processing time, we ask departments to refrain from initiating any purchases between June 19, 2019 and June 30, 2019.

You may resume purchases on July 1st Pcard transactions may be made through June 18th, but we suggest placing online orders prior to that date to ensure they are received and included on the June billing statement.

To ensure timely payment of invoices, please submit them directly to the Controller’s Office.  Do not submit invoices in eProcure.
