Important Dates for FY 2008 Closing Schedule

With the implementation of the PeopleSoft Financial System July 1, 2008, closing Fiscal Year 2008 procedures will be different from previous years. The most significant change to be aware of is deadlines and cut-off dates for document processing are much earlier than usual. Below are some highlights from the year-end closing schedule to make note of:

  • Thursday, June 26
    • Last ECAR sweep for FY2008 - ECARs must be in posting status by 10:00 a.m.
    • Last day to process Historical Salary Adjustments (HSA) for FY 2008. Note: HSAs cannot be processed in period 13
    • Last day to process Employee Expense and Travel and Payment Vouchers (that do not reference a purchase order) in FY 2008. Must be in approved status by end of day.
  • Tuesday, July 1
    • IVs, IXs and JVs must be in y 2:00 p.m. Accounting services approval needed. Otherwise must be in approved status by 6:00 p.m.
    • Period 12 closes.
    • GO-LIVE for the new PeopleSoft Financial System
  • Wednesday, July 2
    • CUFS OPEN for period 13 - Note: only correcting and closing entries (IXs and JVs) allowed in period 13 - NO HSAs and NO ISO transactions allowed
  • Thursday, July 3
  • Saturday, July 26
    • Period 13 close

Enterprise fee transfers will be done in period 13 as soon as possible after period 12 close. A transfer will be made from the college to the department/unit's 1000 (or main) account, to cover Enterprise fees charged to all O&M and ICR accounts. Departments should re-distribute this transfer to cover the enterprise fee on all their O&M or ICR accounts including instructional accounts (xxx-1506 and xxx-1504). Departments are responsible for Enterprise fees charged to any other accounts that are not O&M or ICR.

Final supplemental and summer session instructional transfers will be done in period 12.

More detailed information about the closing process can be found on the FSS web http://www.fss.umn.edu/FYE/

It is critical that you audit the PeopleSoft entries made by staff in the CLA Payroll Office once the entry worksheets have been returned. Let us know immediately if you find an error so that it can be corrected as soon as possible. Items To Check In PeopleSoft:

  • Make sure the pay rate is correct
  • Is the percentage of time correct?
  • Make sure the appointment dates are correct
  • Is the action/reason code(s) correct?
  • Make sure the Suspension, Termination or Short Work Break rows are not missing (missing end rows can result in OVERPAYMENTS)

Also, we recently updated the list of required documents for NEW CLA HIRES. This updated list can be found on the CLA Fiscal Administration website at:


REMEMBER: Auditing the PeopleSoft appointments we enter for you is a crucial part of the payroll auditing process. It is the final step in making sure your employees receive the correct pay on the correct pay day.
