Year-End Instructions (lapse, carry forward, etc.):

Year end encumbrance balances are reported to DOA in appropriation 186 and allotted by DOA in 186 in the following fiscal year. However, open encumbrances at the end of the fiscal year remain in 177 in the University's records when they are brought forward to the new fiscal and expenditures against those encumbrances are charged to 177 in the new year. During the year SA moves the prior year expenditures to 186 via GPO transfers in order to align the expenses with the same appropriation where DOA has the allotment. There is no cash balance to carry forward since it is a GPR appropriation. Refunds of prior year expenditures are deposited to appropriation 186 as receipts (9209).

Special Instructions on Salaries/Fringe Benefits:

Budget transfers off the salaries/fringe benefits line are not allowed at any time for this appropriation.
