Fiscal year-end deadlines approaching: Next deadline - May 27

Fiscal year-end is coming. Georgia College is responsible for insuring that financials for the institution are accurately accounted for before closing-out the fiscal year on June 30, 2019. This includes making sure that any funding that can possibly lapse (go back to the State) is expended and accounted for properly. Being a state entity, we have to follow certain purchasing policies and procedures which include deadlines for purchases on varying dollar amounts. To ensure that expenditures are reported properly during the transition of fiscal years, we have included deadlines on receiving transactional items. The following deadlines are necessary to ensure that transactions are properly executed and that our financials are appropriately reported.

Critical deadline/dates:

Purchase order cutoff dates:

June 4, 2019 - State contract purchases and non-contract purchases below $25,000

Notes for Purchasing and E-Pro: On June 5, 2019 at 7 a.m., the e-Pro module of PeopleSoft will be shut down completely and users will be unable to enter requisitions. Requisitions must be entered prior to close of business on June 4, 2019.

P-Card purchase cutoff dates:

May 27, 2019 - No P-Card purchases after this date for FY2019 budget. All transactions for dates up to 5/27/2019 should be allocated and signed off by cardholders and approvers in Works.   This cutoff will help to ensure that all transactions posted on or before this date are posted to your FY 2019 budgets.  However, there may be circumstances where a transaction may be delayed and does not post until after the above date, in which case the charge will be expensed to your FY 2020 budget. You may use the P-Card after this date with the understanding that those charges will post against your FY 2020 budget.
