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 June 30, 2018. 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 insure 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 insure that transactions are properly executed and that our financials are appropriately reported.
