  1. Year-End Milestones Why, What, When and Resources for Year-End

  2. Why and What • One of the most frequently asked questions: Why isn’t this written down anywhere? • Milestones represent year-end tasks that are, in theory, standard across campuses • May not fit perfectly for non-Peoplesoft • Dates represent task to be complete by

  3. What this list is not… • This is not a list of all tasks to be completed • Given the wide variations in policies and procedures between campuses, it is impossible at this point • Following this list to the letter is not a requirement • Represents a framework for those who may be struggling to put together a successful close strategy

  4. How was the list compiled? • Year-End closing schedules for several campuses reviewed • While the lists were much more campus specific, in general they were very similar in what activities were occurring on particular timelines

  5. Late May – Hopefully already done… • Finalize year-end schedule and distribute to staff • Load SAM99 Accrual Reversal Tape • SAM99 should be run with Accrual Reversal checkbox marked from this point forward • Analyze data dependencies for month and year-end entries • Meet with departments or contact third-party providers to determine dates information will be ready or potential cut-off of activity to meet deadlines

  6. Late May – Hopefully already done…continued • Collect data and analyze capital leases, capital projects & other potential complex transactions • Develop strategy for booking to ledger • Review reverting funds • Clear any remaining assets and liabilities • Current year revenues and expenses will close to fund balance clearing • Review closing rules and trees • Update for reverting/reverted funds

  7. Early June • Close and reconcile May data • Notify Auxiliaries of Year-End Deadlines • FIRMS/GAAP/IPEDS • Request Contingent Liabilities list • June 16th SCO MUST have final 2005/06 Claims/PFA/Transfer Requests in Hand for guaranteed processing • Consider if enough General Fund balance available to meet June 30 payroll

  8. No later than June 23rd • Final Escheat Checks Remitted • Review and Adjust A/R Reserves • Clear all SAM99 reconciliation issues identified in May month-end or June mid-month review • Clear all known FIRMS error messages

  13. Interdependent Tasks • Tasks listed for the last week of June and first week of July are largely interdependent • Planning and performance is critical to meeting close deadline

  18. July 17th • FIRMS Submission Completed • Pre- and Post- Close Files • Transmit Final SAM99 file to SCO

  19. What if FIRMS file doesn’t pass review? • Depending on the Error – Program code vs. Object/Fund Reclassification • Re-open xxCMP – Make Object/Fund reclassification • Repeat steps from Afternoon of July 12th until FIRMS file is accepted
