Year - End: Closing Dates for Fiscal Year 2015/2016 Released

June 30, 2016 marks the end of fiscal year 2015/2016. Financial Services conducts many year-end related activities from May through September to comply with financial reporting requirements established by the California State Controller, Department of Finance and the CSU Chancellor’s Office. During this time we must also prepare for the annual financial audits.

The State Controller has mandated that the CSU close its books and submit year end reports in early July. Therefore, it is critically important that you understand the impact of the State Controller’s request on our closing schedule.

To ensure success, we have developed operational timelines to facilitate the orderly processing of transactions, closing of accounts, compliance with the State Controller’s closing schedule and subsequent financial reporting.

Please note, these timelines are the same for and apply to ALL Sonoma State business units (SOASI, SOCMP, SOFDN, and SOSSE).

We request your assistance and partnership in accomplishing the many tasks associated with our year-end process.  Please take time to review this document carefully and incorporate the closing dates into your year-end planning.  As always, we greatly appreciate your cooperation.
