To: ALL UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENTS From: Kathy Huber, Accounting Manager and Sarah Howell, Accounting Supervisor Date: May 28, 2013 Updated May 30, 2013 Re: Fiscal Year 12/13 (FY13) Year-End Closing We are quickly approaching June 30, 2013, the University’s FY13 fiscal year close. With that in mind, we thought we would take some time to review the year-end closing procedures. All transactions for FY13 operations must be processed by specific dates throughout June and July.

If there are any questions or problems concerning the year-end closing process, please contact Kathy Huber, Accounting Manager, at 494-2028 or huberk@ohsu.edu.

Important Notes: • We are allowing one extra day for JE submission and two extra days for IBS entries to
allow extra year-end processing time. (Section V). All deadlines will be strictly enforced, including journal entry submissions to CFS and the Foundation.

• Do not pre-spend for FY14 goods or services by submitting invoices in FY13. • Foundation transfers will be allowed after Dept. reports are available. (Section VI-B) • Remember that Cognos (Variance Reporting) is updated nightly. • OGA (grants) closes one day late for June, with reports available on Tuesday, Jul. 9. • Final GL reports will be available Monday, Jul. 29.
