Fiscal-Year-End Closing and Opening Procedures
Organizations like colleges and universities are decentralized and departmental officers have been delegated the responsibility for their financial information. This financial information is critical to the integrity of the University's financial statements. It is necessary, therefore, for departmental officers to ensure that this information is properly recorded in the University's financial system for inclusion in those financial statements. It is important that personnel responsible for the business and financial activity of the department carefully review all policies, procedures and critical dates for the FY13 closing/FY14 opening process available from this page. Units are also encouraged to review their monthly accounting statements for accuracy, and to process any adjustments by the deadline dates.
