 2. MONTH END REPORTS – ITS Store Charges, May PCard charges
It was noted that not all of duplicated ITS Store charges were reversed in the April reports.  This should be rectified in the May reports.  Please check ITS Store charges carefully. 

In addition, May PCard charges are not reflected in the May EPrint reports.  They did not make the monthly cycle but are reflected in Inquiry as of June 5.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Inquiry reports have been updated for May month end jobs.  Users can access Eprint through the Administrative Applications area in their employee portfolio and by using their FRS operator number as the UserID and FRS Password as the Eprint password.

Please visit the WFS blog for status updates and answers to Frequently Asked Questions.  Questions and comments on the project can also be submitted from the page. 

Training will begin June 15 and run through September.  A detailed training schedule will be published next week.  Notification will be sent when the on-line registration process is available.

The year end schedule has been distributed and can be found at www.wesleyan.edu/finance/financeDept.  

Now is the time to monitor budgets and expenses very carefully.  Remember that expenses are to be charged in the year in which the goods are received or the services are performed.  The presentation contains detailed examples of how accruals and prepaid expenses are handled at year end. 

To get ready for our new financial system, Accounts Payable will be collecting information from our existing vendors using our New Vendor/Substitute W-9 form. This form will be available soon on our web site. In the near future a new vendor will not be set up for payment until this form is received by the accounts payable department.

Vouchers received by 4pm on Thursdays will be processed for payment in the following week’s Friday check run.

For accounts payable questions please contact Tammy Harley at x2843 or Janet Gyurits at x2842 or email ap@wesleyan.edu

The University has not been billed by WB Mason for April and May charges that were paid on account.  We are working to rectify this as soon as possible.  Please use Inquiry for the most updated status of your account.

Reminder, if you have a University PCard, we encourage you to use the PCard for on line WB Mason purchases by choosing the Credit Card option at checkout.

As noted above, the May PCard charges are not reflected in May EPrint reports.  They did not make the month end cycle but are reflected in Inquiry as of June 5.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please be sure to monitor your monthly purchase limit, especially prior to making any large purchases.  This will ensure the card is not declined at the point of sale.

Special PCard downloads will be held in the month of June to provide timely data for year end budget analysis.  The following is a schedule of June download dates:

      Activity Posted/Download Date

  • May 21 – June 12/June 17
  • June 13 – June 20/June 24
  • June 21 – June 30/July 6

Be sure to access SDOL to reallocate any charges prior to the download.  Any reallocation after the download will require an ELF Entry.

Reconciled and approved PCARD statements are due to the Finance Office by June 20th with supporting documentation.

  1. I believe there was an error in the Mileage Rate Information stated above. This was posted on the Finance Website: The University will reimburse transportation costs to the extent such costs exceed the normal daily cost to commute to their office. The University will reimburse for business miles driven in a personal vehicle at a rate of 58.5 cents per mile. This rate is updated on a fiscal year basis every July.

    So you meant to write, there will be a decrease in mileage reimbursement to $0.55 on July 1, 2009.
