For Faculty and Staff
As part of Case Western Reserve's continuing efforts to improve the accuracy and timeliness of reported information and to identify trends that may impact projected budget performance, the university will again be instituting a hard close for the December 31 quarter-end. All salary adjustments, non-salary transfers or other correcting activity for transactions that occurred between July 1, 2008 and November 30, 2008, must be submitted by the December month-end processing deadlines, which can be found on the Controller's Office Web site. The disciplined review of financial reports and the timely adjustment of variance items are vital to ensuring the accuracy of the university's reported financial information. Contact Sponsored Projects Accounting regarding grant related transactions, or the Controller's Office with other questions regarding this process.
