1. Budget Transfers in WFS – March 30 deadline
2. WB Mason Charges – Double check charges

4. Purchasing News – Copier, Limo and Taxi, Hotel Rates
5. Inn at Middletown – Request Reservations by Email

The deadline for original budget transfers is Friday, March 30 at 12:00 pm. It is important that we freeze the 2012 original budgets in preparation for 2013 budget planning and implementation. Adjustment budget transfers will still be allowed in the last quarter of the fiscal year, but there should be very little budget transfer activity from this point forward.

As a reminder, budget transfer training materials can be found on the WFS Blog at Offline budget transfer requests must be submitted to a fiscal manager and for approval.

Please double check the December and January WB Mason charges against your PCard activity. We have experienced technical problems with the feed to WFS which may have resulted in some duplicate charges to the Smartkey. If you find a duplicate charge please contact Susan Pavis at x2839 or

Please contact Sherri Condon at x2437 to obtain the necessary dining forms to charge the cost to a department.
