Rolling Over a Travel Authorization

Navigation: Travel and Expenses > Manage Accounting > Rollover Travel Authorization

  1. The Rollover Travel Authorization run control search page displays.
  2. If you have run this process or report in the past, select the Find an Existing Value tab to enter an existing Run Control ID and select the Search button. If this is the first time running this process or report, select the Add a New Value tab to create a new Run Control ID and select the Add button. 
    • NOTE: It is important to note that Run Control IDs cannot be deleted. Do not include spaces in your Run Control. We encourage the Run Control ID to have the same process naming convention but unique to the step; because of this, including your institution code and a short process description in the Run Control ID is recommended--e.g., WA020_ROLLOVER_TA (College, Process).
  3. The Rollover Travel Authorization page displays. Select the Process Parameter method at the top left of the page.

STEP 1 - Reverse Current Period - Select to reverse out encumbrances from the prior period. (can be done at any time of the year).

STEP 2 - Roll to New Period - Select to re-encumber funds in the new Fiscal year. This option will only display search results after STEP 1 has ran.
