SOAR will be unavailable from 12:00 pm on Wednesday,
September 29, 2010 until 8:00 am on Friday, October 1, 2010 for end of year
processing. As in previous years, PASS will be unavailable to users to support
this end-of-year processing beginning at 10:30 am on Wednesday, September
29, 2010 until approximately 9:00 am on Friday, October 1, 2010. Please be
sure that all transactions that must be entered in FY10 are approved before
10:30 am on the 29th.
OCFO reports that several FY11 agency budgets are loaded and
can be pre-encumbered. Users are advised to check with their agency’s AFO or
budget staff to learn the specifics of the status of their budget load. Job-aids
blogs explaining how to pre-encumber new fiscal year funds can be found using the links to the left. FY11 requisitions
entered using the FY Beginning Indicator can be approved by contracting
officers before October 1. PASS will then hold the PO and automatically
issue the PO to the vendor when the system is available on the 1st.
If you have any questions regarding PASS/SOAR end-of-year
