2017 Year End Update 

A successful FY 2017 hard close was implemented last weekend. This accomplishment is due to agency staff working hard to meet deadlines and resolve issues. Thanks to everyone for making the FY 17 close a great success!


Statewide Financial Policies and Procedures 

The following Statewide operating policy, procedure, and form have been updated and posted to the Statewide Financial Policies webpage of the MMB website under Chapter 7:

  • MMB Statewide Operating Policy 0702-01 Reinstating Encumbrances after Close of the Fiscal Year
  • MMB Statewide Operating Procedure 0702-01.1 Reinstating Encumbrance after Close of the Fiscal year
  • MMB Statewide Operating Form 0702-01.1F Request to Open Closed Year Appropriation and/or Reinstate Cancelled Money

These include minor revisions replacing the references to the old Appropriation form to the Appropriation Maintenance Application.


Vendor File Update - Change of Address

Reminder, you will notice two changes when submitting vendor address updates. When adding a new address, you will now be required to include Doing Business As (DBA) name and comments on your address request. However, you will NOT be able to change the DBA Name on existing addresses.

  • DBA NAME 1 and DBA NAME 2 will be new fields on the address page
  • The Comments field is now a required field. Comments should include the requester’s name, contact information (e.g. phone number), and a brief explanation for the change.
  • The County field is now a required field. For Counties in other states, Enter NON MINNESOTA in the county field.

MMB receives several requests daily to update vendor addresses.

The vendor or the agency doing business with the vendor is responsible for submitting address requests in SWIFT. Once this step has been completed, the change is routed to the MMB vendor team for approval.

Questions on how to submit these requests can be forwarded to vendor.mmbefax@state.mn.us.
