Deadline for Expenditures
The deadline to expend funds for Fiscal Year 2013 is Monday, July 1, 2013.
As we have previously advised, UT Brownsville will be converting to PeopleSoft on September 3, 2013. In order to prepare our accounts and data, functions managed via DataTel must cease in July to provide sufficient time to complete processes and cleanup data by the cutover date. We understand that many of you will be responsible for activities over the summer and therefore ask that you plan accordingly and process required transactions before the deadline. We have extended our normal purchasing cutoff from June 1st to July 1st to allow additional time to address all needs. Remember to complete any travel requisitions needed during this period as well.
The deadlines apply to the expenditure of all funds, including grant funds. We know that this may present a challenge to principal investigators but we encourage you to review your needs now and plan accordingly. If you are unable to do so, we ask that you contact us immediately.
