Maintaining Fiscal Period Summary

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for maintaining fiscal period summary in ctcLink.

Audience: Settlement Manager, GL Accountant.

You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:

  • ZD Treasury Inquiry
  • ZZ Treasury Accounting Maint

If you need assistance with the above security roles, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access.

The Fiscal Period Summary page is used to close or lock down the accounting for a specified fiscal period, in preparation for end-of-period financial-report generation and analysis.

This prevents other users from rerunning Treasury Management accounting processes for the closed fiscal period. You can also reset a fiscal period that has been closed in error.
