December Accounting Period Close

For employees who track or manage department budgets, please note that the month of December 2021 is now closed in CFS.

This means the General Ledger (GL) system will not accept any more entries with a December journal date. December transactions can still be entered into the GL system, but the journal date must be 1/1/22 or later. The current period open is January 2022.
