End of Fiscal Year DeadlinesIt’s that time of year again to prepare for the annual closing of the fiscal year.Please pay close attention to the departmental fiscal deadlines listed below in red. It is important that these deadlines are followed in order to allow the fiscal staff adequate time to prepare for the university wide year-end closing process. Please share with your faculty/staff/residents/students.FOR ALL FACULTY: Flex dollars DO NOT carry forward. Faculty flex allotments reset July 1. If you need to know what your current flex balance is, please check with Gwen or myself.PAYROLL DISTRIBUTIONS: 6/15/2015 in order to ensure the changes post in time for the last payroll retro distribution run on 6/18/15. Now is the time to make sure that you are accurately distributed to all research projects for which you have effort. Any changes after 6/18/15 will not post in FY15 and will instead post in FY16. If you have questions about this, please let me know.TRAVEL/EXPENSE REIMBURSEMENTS: — 6/18/2015 – Deadline for submitting a travel or expense reimbursement request to fiscal staff in order to be paid from current fiscal year funds. This is especially important if using your flex allotment or any other unrestricted funding source that does not carry forward. The travel/expense module will close at the end of business on 6/22/2015 and will not re-open until 7/6/15. If your travel and/or expense reimbursement request is submitted to the fiscal staff after 6/18/15 there is no guarantee that it will be processed in the current fiscal year which means you will have to wait until the system reopens in July before your reimbursement can be processed. This is especially important if you are wanting to use FY15 Flex allotment funds. 6/23/2015 is the last day expense reports can be approved to ensure payment from current FY funds.For unrestricted funding sources only: Please note that setting up a travel authorization for a travel ending while the system is closed will not hold or carryforward your FY15 flex funds, neither will requesting a cash advance. The expense has to occur and be posted before the system closes in order to pay from FY15 funds. If you want to use your FY15 flex funds for a travel at the end of June 2015, please let us pay the expense on your behalf in order to ensure that it comes out of FY15 funds.PURCHASING & DISBURSEMENT DEADLINES: — 6/10/2015 – Deadline for submitting requisitions/Purchase Order requests that are intended to be encumbered against current FY funds. This includes myUFmarket requisitions. All purchase requisitions must be entered into the system by end of business 6/12/15 in order to be encumbered against current fiscal year funds. Please have any PO requests turned in to the fiscal staff by 6/10/2015 in order to ensure that we have sufficient time for the requisition process. This is especially important if using your flex allotment or other unrestricted sources that do not carry forward from year to year. Anything processed after these dates will automatically roll to FY16.PCard purchases — Because of timing issues with vendors submitting credit card transactions to their bank, there is no way to determine the exact date a transaction will be sent to UF by our bank and loaded into the PCard module. This means that even if a purchase is made on 6/11/2015 there is no guarantee that it will show up in the system and go through the approval process by the time the system shuts down so please plan purchases accordingly – the sooner the better. 6/23/2015 is the last day to approve PCard transactions to ensure payment from current FY funds.6/23/2015 – This is the last day to approve an invoice to ensure payment from current FY funds.We will be closed out of all UF Financial systems at the end of business on 6/23/2015 and the system will not re-open until 7/06/2015.If you have any questions contact Robin Smith, Assistant Director, 352.273.5548, firstname.lastname@example.org
