SLAC fiscal year 2003 ends on September 30. The following
are some important year-end dates to note.
RECEIVERS: Items on the shipping and receiving dock at
4:00 p.m. September 30 will be included in this year’s costs.
ACCRUALS: Personal services, subcontracts, Labs and
Universities, and blanket purchase orders require sufficient documentation
to authorize payment. That is, if someone is doing some work, there must
be an approved PO in the system, and then the person who directly
supervises the work certifies that some percent of work is completed at
some value of the total. The request should be presented to your Division
Planner for accrual. Get these items to your division financial Planner by
5 p.m. on Friday, September 19. Planners are to get these to Skip Ethier
by end of day the following Monday.
REQ COMMITMENTS: Requisitions are counted as
commitments as soon as the Operator approves them. Req commitments are
internal commitments only. They are not reported to the DOE in our month
end financial statements (MARS). Req commitments will be counted in SED &
ARF up to the end of the day on September 30.
Once a PO number has been dispatched, the Req commitment
has gone away and requisitions can no longer be put in the pending
PO COMMITMENTS: Whatever purchasing dispatches by the
end of the day on September 30 will count as PO commitments for year-end
PURCHASE CARDS: There will be no special general
accrual of purchase card transactions for September 2003. Anything on your

ACCOUNTS PAYABLE: Invoices for goods and services
received in FY2003 should be costed in FY2003. You’ll need to get them to
