    Leading Practices

    Centralization of period management and all year end carry-forward activities specifically when budget is being carried forward

    Fiscal year change activities must be started at an early stage. Open commitments that are not going to be cleared in current year and not carried forward should be cleaned up on a timely basis.

    Activities need to be coordinated with year end activities of other modules as part of the overall year end schedule.

    FM Month End Steps Open / Close FM Periods

    Decision: Period Control will be used for budgeting (FI-FM-002 Workshop)

    As part of the month end process, FM periods for budget and actual postings must be updated (i.e. opened and closed)

    Proposal: FM period maintenance involves closing the current month and opening the next month for the following:

    1) FM Update Periods (actual and commitment updates in FM) FM will be kept open until the FI & CO periods are closed (after all month end

    transactions posted) Month-end day will be determined in the Period End GL session

    2) Budgeting Periods: Day 0 (last day of current month): EOD open the next month for budget activities Day X : Close out the current month for budgeting activities to coincide with FM

    Update Period in case of necessary budget adjustments to support actual / commitment updates

    Month-end day will be determined in the Period End GL session
