A prepaid is an amount paid by the University for a future expense that has been paid in advance. In other words, prepaid expenses are costs that have been paid in one fiscal year (ex., FY19) but the goods or services will not be used up or delivered until the following fiscal year (ex., FY20).
Changes were implemented Thursday evening, May 21, 2020 to the OBI Finance dashboard for the General Ledger Transaction Export process.
The proposal to eliminate function 42-Deans and Provost was discussed at the RC-Strategy Group & the Accounting & Reporting Partner Group. It was agreed that activity currently going through function 42 should be transitioned to function 40-Academic Support, starting now, so that function 42 can be end dated on 6/30/20. It is not necessary to make any corrections to FY20 activity, but starting in FY21 you will no longer be able to charge to function 42.

Shred-It will continue to pickup confidential shredding during the COVID-19 period but by appointment only. Normally, Shred-It has scheduled pickup days with most departments. However, due to a large number of offices and buildings being closed or having limited access during this time, Shred-It was often unable to to pickup the bins. Scheduled pickups have been placed on hold until the end of May, at which point we will re-evaluate the situation.
