Section 28: STANFINS Monthly Processing Calendar DFAS-Rome is committed to the timely processing of all accounting transactions. A consistent flow of transactions throughout the month will avoid batched transactions as well as unnecessary errors. Timely receipt of transmittal letters and other accounting transactions are critical to the quality of support provided to our customers. To that end, a STANFINS calendar by DPI is distributed each month to all customers. This calendar contains the processing schedule for the various interfaces and adjustment files, such as the database Accounting and Reconciliation System (dARS) mismatch, accrual and F- card adjustments, as well as STANFINS daily and weekly processing. It also contains the schedule for ISB cycles, ODS, interfund bill processing, DCPS payroll and DCPS MODs and SRD-1 transaction processing and cutoff dates. DFAS-Rome will adhere to the schedule unless prevented by extenuating circumstances. The STANFINS calendar should be referred to if you have any questions regarding the processing and cutoff schedule for the month. To receive a copy of the calendar for your installation either contact your servicing accounting branch or access the following web site: https://dfas4dod.dfas.mil/centers/dfasin/yearend/schedules.htm#rome. The calendar provides DFAS-Rome a standard processing tool and gives customers a reasonable expectation of DFAS-Rome performance. It also provides us the ability to control the flow of workload, which will translate into consistent end-of-month procedures and report processing. There will be a separate yearend schedule along with other yearend guidance and requirements. Run cycles are indicated as Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Clean Up, and special. A STANFINS cycle is normally run each business day of the month excluding holidays. A listing of the cycles processed under each run cycle can be found at the following web site: https://dfas4dod.dfas.mil/centers/dfasin/library/stanfins/sysman/opsman.htm. Special run cycles must be kept to a minimum and coordinated at least a day in advance with DFAS-Rome. The cycle processing schedule includes a core of output products for customer usage. Special runs will not be processed with sort criteria or grouping since both COGNOS Impromptu (ODS query software) and the Accounting Transaction Ledger Archival System (ATLAS) have the capability to produce sorted reports. The STANFINS cleanup cycle is normally scheduled for the last workday of the month. Input to the cleanup cycle should be minimal and limited to funding and other transactions required to eliminate invalid balances on end of month reports. Exceptions to this should be coordinated with your servicing accounting branch. The first STANFINS cycle of the new month then normally occurs on the 2 nd workday.
