This is a reminder to employees who manage department budgets that a change order is submitted to correct encumbrances while an expense journal is submitted to correct actuals. Departments should not attempt to correct the chartfield of an encumbrance through an expense journal, especially when doing year-end clean up, because doing so would distort the roll forward allocation.
Since an option to update the chartfield for existing lines is not available on the change order form, please note the request (updated chartfield, relevant lines, etc.) under the “Request Summary and Additional Details” field.
Links to Finance’s tutorials as well as year-end deadlines are included below.
