Financial Services releases a new FAST research report

Financial Services releases a new FAST research report

The research community has expressed a desire for a report that combines details for salary payments and Graduate Research Assistant Fellowship (GRAF) payments processed through Accounts Payable (AP).

As a result, Financial Services has developed a new report that is now available!  The report, entitled “Payroll & AP transactions to salary accounts”, is available through the Research Reports section in FAST.

Change to Month End Closures

Dear Colleagues,

Please be advised that the timeline for month-end closures will be decreased from five business days to three business days, effective for the January 2017 month-end.   

This reduced timeline is being implemented following consultation with Business Officers, where the impacts of the change were carefully assessed.  A shorter month end timeline will result in the ability to provide better service to all those who use and rely on our Financial Information and will provide more timely information the many decision makers and stakeholders at Queen’s.
