The Budget Office monitors budgets and distributes to all Deans and Vice Presidents deficit letters detailing indexes with deficits. Departments should monitor their budgets on-line using Banner Self-Service and begin making the appropriate transfers now. If budget transfers for FY16 need to be completed after June 30, the Transaction Date must be changed to 30-JUN-2016.

  1. Sign on to Southeast Portal using your SE Key
  2. Click on the Employee SS tab.
  3. Click on Banner Self-Service.
  4. Select Finance.
  5. Select Budget Queries.

Open Encumbrances

As we approach the end of the fiscal year, now is a good time to be aware of the status of any open Purchase Orders and General Encumbrances (Cash Advances).

Please follow the steps below to get a list of the encumbrances that remain open in your budget. Review this list for any purchase orders that may need to be closed or cancelled and any cash advance general encumbrances that an Expense Report has not been received in Accounts Payable. Attention to these items will permit a smooth transfer from budget fiscal year 2016 to budget fiscal year 2017.

Also, remember that payments cannot be issued against purchase orders, which require a receiver, until a receiver document has been entered.

Thank you for your attention to these items. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Accounts Payable at ext. 2055.
