                                                              FISCAL YEAR END GUIDELINES 2011-2012




                                    FISCAL YEAR END GUIDELINES - 2012

Financial and Business Services office is required to prepare financial statements which properly reflect the
expenditures for each fiscal year. These financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles and are audited by the Florida Auditor General’s Office. For accurate financial statement
presentation, we must charge all materials and services received by June 30 to the current ending fiscal year.

A College-wide Year End Closing Calendar is published each year in April with notice of the pertinent dates for
the fiscal year-end closing. The Calendar is located on the Business Services website on the Accounting page
and is available for download. Please print it out and make note of the deadlines.

                                          NEW for 2011-2012:
     If you have always waited until July to complete your year-end tasks, don’t wait this year -
                                         things are different!
         All year-end associated tasks for inclusion of expenses in the current fiscal year must be
                                 completed on or before Monday, July 2.


The college is on the accrual basis of accounting, which means that we record income in the fiscal year it is
earned and expenditures in the fiscal year the materials or services are received. Departments must submit for
payment all invoices for materials and services that are received on or before June 30 as soon as possible after
June 30 and prior to the closing date established in the College-wide Year End Closing Calendar each year. The
following is a table showing how different situations are treated:

                                                                 FISCAL YEAR END GUIDELINES 2011-2012




HOW DO YOU HANDLE…2011-12 business?

               NOTE: All College locations and departments are now “live” with utilizing the e-req
system within PeopleSoft Financials. All new year (2012-2013) blanket PO requisition are to be
completed in the system - no paper requisitions will be accepted. In order to ensure that the requisition
and the accompanying budget are from the new year, you must enter the July 1, 2012 date for both
the requisition date and the accounting date. Please pay careful attention to your data entry.

         How do I know if I still have money left on a 2011-12 purchase order?
                Run the “All PO’s by Cost Center (New)” Crystal report S_POC58O for each of your cost centers
                individually. Please be sure to use 07/01/11 as the “PO Accounting Date From” prompt and
                06/30/12 as the “PO Accounting Date To” to ensure that you are getting information on all
                purchase orders issued during this fiscal year. Do not leave any of the prompt fields blank. If a
                purchase order has zero dollars remaining, it is effectively closed – you cannot use it, you cannot
                process a change order against it.

         Blanket (formally known as Open) purchase order payments?
                 Blanket purchase orders are NOT eligible for rollover into the new fiscal year. Final orders
                 against blanket purchase orders must be placed by April 27, 2012. Those orders must be
                 received and invoiced by June 30. It is the department’s responsibility to notify the vendor that an
                 invoice must be received in Accounts Payable no later than July 1 in order to be expensed in the
                 correct budget year. Faxed invoices are acceptable (AP fax number is 727-341-3117).

         Rollover purchase orders?
                 Rollover purchase orders take budget with them from the current to the new fiscal year, but only
                 certain types of purchase orders are eligible for rollover. For instance, purchase orders for 2011-
                 12 that contain the language “for the period of July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012” are not
                 eligible for rollover. Blanket purchase orders that were unused in 2011-12 are not eligible for
                 rollover. Please work with Purchasing and with your Grants Accountant, where applicable, to
                 “scrub” your purchase orders to determine which are eligible for rollover. Your list must be
                 received no later than May 21, 2012. All purchase orders ineligible for rollover will be closed by
                 June 30.

         Petty Cash expenditures?
                 Keep petty cash expenditures for June separate from those for July. The deadline for
                 submitting Petty Cash reimbursements from 2012 budget is June 22, 2012. Petty Cash is to
                 be counted and recorded on June 29. A request for replenishment should be done at the same
                 time in order to keep June and July transactions separate. In mid-June, a reminder email will be
                 sent to each Business Office Manager and/or custodian of cash containing a link to the Cash
                 Count Form and instructions for preparation and timely submission.

         Journal entry submission?
                 With few exceptions (including grants and construction), Journal entries for transactions affecting
                 the 2011-12 fiscal year should be submitted to Accounting as early as possible and no later than
                 July 11, 2012. This will allow Accounting to meet established deadlines. Please do not combine
                 entries for 2011-2012 and 2012-13 on one form; you must submit separate forms and be sure the
                 Budget Year column indicates the correct Budget Year (“12” represents 2011-12; “13” represents
                 2012-13). The 2012-13 journal entry form will be posted on the SPC website by May 21,
                 2012.

         College checks that must be voided?
                 Forward any college checks issued in the fiscal year ending June 30 which must be voided to
                 Matthias Bates in Accounting at the Epicenter Services building. Please do not hold these
                 checks, but return them to Accounting as soon as you are aware of the need to void. Be sure to
                 note in the remittance portion of the check why it is to be voided and whether a replacement
                 check is to be issued. Provide your name and a contact phone number so that you can be
                 reached if necessary.

         Tagging of Assets?
                 All college-owned equipment, furnishings, and fixtures costing $1,000 or more must be tagged by
                 Monday, June 25, 2012. If you have an untagged asset, please contact Karen Reynolds in Asset
                 Management at 341-3234. Budget Supervisors must make every attempt to locate missing
                 assets prior to June 30. On June 30, each Budget Supervisor is required to print a list of missing
                 assets, sign and date the printout, and send to Karen Reynolds, Asset Management, EpiCenter
                 Services Building.

         Grant or Restricted Funded business?
                 Please remember to obtain your Grants Accountant’s signature before submitting requisitions
                 and/or check requests to Purchasing or AP. Since many Grant or Restricted Funded programs
                 have differing rules and deadlines that may not be in synch with the College’s deadlines, please
                 discuss with your Grant Accountant the deadlines that will impact you.

         Budgets?
                If your remaining balance of budget is near zero and you will be processing additional 2011-12
                expenses that were not previously encumbered, please contact Jim Nosewicz in the Budgets
                Office (341-3230) and make arrangements to provide an alternate funding source through a
                budget amendment for your journal entries or vouchers. The final day for submitting current
                expense budget amendments, for FY 2011-12 is June 11, 2012. The final day for
                submitting personnel or OPS budget amendments, for FY 2011-12 is June 22, 2012.

                 Contact any of the Team on the Contact Information sheet provided at the end of the SPC 2012
                 Year-End Closing Calendar. Please remember that College Policies and Procedures are not
                 suspended during year end activities, even though the volume of details is intensified due to
                 processing two fiscal years during the same time frame. To ensure that your business is
                 processed timely and accurately, be sure that all required signatures are in place, that you have
                 attached required supporting documentation, and supplied accurate and up-to-date information
