|Update to Procurement Year End Closing Guidance for Agencies, 4/20/12|
On April 12, we issued Procurement year-end closing guidance to agencies regarding finalizing payments and closing orders. We realize that this involves a lot of effort on the part of agencies and we are continuing to investigate and explore other options to make this process easier and faster for you. However, for now, the guidance given is our best insurance that the transactions will be properly updated between all modules.
It was never our intention to have agencies go back and redo anything they have already processed. Use the instructions moving forward in your closing activities – do not go back and re-process anything you may have already finalized a voucher on, or forced closed through the Buyer’s Workbench.
Other updates to follow, but for now follow the guidance given April 12 moving forward. See Procurement Year End Closing Guidance to Agencies, 4/12/12. Additional year-end close information is located at SWIFT FY12 Year End Processes.
PO Reconciliation Run is Delayed
In communications sent by the SWIFT Project team on April 12, we announced that the PO reconciliation job would run this weekend, beginning April 20. The purpose of this email is to let you know that the PO reconciliation job will NOT run this weekend as originally planned.
We are postponing the run due to the estimated number of documents to be processed in the job's first run and other jobs already scheduled for this period. Tentative plans are to run this job next weekend. We will confirm our plans in a future Deployment Update.
