Salary Encumbrances for Fiscal Year 2021

The program that will create salary and fringe encumbrances for FY 2021 is scheduled to be run on Friday, September 11.  Please review your accounts with the Budget to Actual report after that date to ensure that your budgets and encumbrances are correct for the new fiscal year.  As a reminder, the program only encumbers salary for employees paid in the monthly payroll.  Also, please remember you may use the Business Explorer (BEx) program to compare the position salary budgets to employee or positions cost.
