FN - Fiscal Year End Considerations

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Below are important employee funding considerations when transitioning from one fiscal year to the next.

PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS:
  • Special circumstances for expiring funding, C-Basis funding, and funding rollover are outlined below.  For more information on Fiscal Year End, please click here: Fiscal Year End landing page



Funding that is expiring

Avoid encumbrance issues by ensuring that funding is not entered using projects that expire in the outgoing fiscal year.


C-basis Funding

Even though C-basis (academic year) appointments do not earn wages over the summer, appointment level funding tied to the new fiscal year must be in place effective July 1 to fund prepaid fringe benefits expenses over the summer.


Funding Rollover

Funding for the new fiscal year is populated in the following order:

  1. Manual Entry, if desired

  2. CAT to CA (Compensation Administration Tool to HRS Commitment Accounting) load  
    An employee's appointment level funding will load from CAT to HRS Budget Funding Data Entry page only if appointment level funding tied to the new fiscal year does not already exist for the employee. Any existing appointment level funding in place before the CAT to CA load process was manually entered by a campus user and will not be overwritten. Results from the CAT to CA load will be sent to campuses for review to assist in ensuring funding is properly in place for the new fiscal year.

  3. Rollover from outgoing fiscal year to new fiscal year
    An employee’s appointment-level funding is copied from the outgoing fiscal year to the new fiscal year only if:
    • appointment-level funding tied to the new fiscal year does not already exist, which could have been manually entered or loaded from CAT; and
    • Appointment-level funding on the outgoing fiscal year is valid in SFS at the start of the new fiscal year.

    Department-level funding is copied from the outgoing fiscal year to the new fiscal year only if:
    • department-level funding tied to the new fiscal year does not already exist; and
    • department-level funding on the outgoing fiscal year is valid in SFS at the start of the new fiscal year.

    Results from the test rollover and final rollover processes will be sent to campuses to assist in ensuring funding is properly in place for the new fiscal year. Refer to the published timeline on the Fiscal Year End landing page for the dates these processes will occur, along with tip sheets for reviewing the data. Note: The tip sheets will not be finalized and published until the results are distributed to campuses.

    It is important Controllers ensure all funding edits are in place during the rollover process. It is also important that Grant Accountants have Budget Control Dates correctly set to prevent projects from rolling over that will not be valid on July 2.

    Note that anyone hired before July 1 who is missing appointment level funding before the rollover in early June will need appointment level funding entered for both the outgoing and the new fiscal year.
