SUBJECT: Cardinal Period Open/Close Schedule
Following is the Cardinal Period Open/Close Schedule the Department of Accounts will observe for Fiscal Year 2018.
The Period Open Date is the date the General Ledger in Cardinal will be opened to accept data for that particular period. The Pre-Period Close Date is the date files from interface agencies must be received to post in the period being closed. On the Period Close Date only on-line entries and spreadsheet journal entries can be posted in Cardinal for the period being closed. Agencies must establish their own internal cut-off to allow sufficient time for transactions to post in Cardinal by the dates established below. Please pay particular attention to the journal date being entered when two periods are open in the General Ledger module. Deposit Certificate data must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on the first working day of the next month. Agencies are not required to submit Deposit Certificate documentation to DOA.
|Period||Period Open Date||Pre-Period Close Date||Period Close Date*|
* All entries must be edited, budget checked and posted by 4:00 pm.
** Estimated date for Preliminary Close.
