Year End Processing Deadlines

Listed below are the deadlines for year-end processes and transactions that must be met in order for these transactions to be recorded in the appropriate fiscal year.  Please contact the appropriate office at the number listed below with any questions.  It is important that everyone make every effort to meet these deadlines and process all outstanding documents within the established timeframe in order to have a successful year-end close. 

As a general reminder, departments have 90 days from the date of the expense to submit requests for corrections or reclassification between accounts. This includes corrections and reclassification requests in the form of journal entries, interdepartmental uploads, and labor redistributions.  Transactions with an original date prior to April should have already been submitted prior to June.  Please note that General Accounting will deny requests that are beyond the 90 days. Exceptions may be made only if there is a valid reason, such as an expense charged to a fund that is not permitted. An example of this would be alcohol charged to an operating/E&G fund.

Request for Purchase Order Requisitions and Purchase Order Closure

Contact: Strategic Procurement 9-0983

Fiscal encumbrances for FY23 cannot be made until after 07/01/22. No transactions for FY23 that require a requisition/PO may be submitted through Buyway before 07/01/22. If a department has a critical workflow that needs to be reviewed, such as an agreement, they are encouraged to submit those documents as soon as possible via Contract Routing, or no later than 04/29/22. When submitting a request for a contract where services will be rendered in FY23, please be sure to include a Buyway comment on your PO that indicates this is a FY23 transaction. Please note that no PO will be sent for a FY23 transaction, and departments will be required to submit those requisitions starting on 07/01/22.

Additionally, Strategic Procurement will also be closing ALL open purchase orders from FY22 starting on 07/01/22. Blanket purchase orders or purchase orders for agreements that cross fiscal years will need to be refreshed via a new Buyway requisition in the new fiscal year. Should a department believe that their PO(s) should carry forward into FY23, departments are asked to submit their PO numbers and justification to for review. Any carry-over requests will need to have a legitimate justification, and Procurement will review these requests on a case-by-case basis.
