SWIFT Update July 19, 2018
Indirect Cost Payments
Agencies need to process their 2018 federal receipt vouchers for the indirect costs in a timely manner to be included in the reverse bilateral netting process. The reverse bilateral netting process will be run on the following dates:
- July 20, 2018
- August 7, 2018
Agencies need to confirm that all FEDIDC vouchers are posted to net. Also, ensure that the naming protocol is appropriate for processing in order to be picked up in the netting process:
- The invoice number must begin with the characters IDC and these characters must be upper case.
- The balance of the invoice number must be unique from any vouchers previously posted (e.g., IDC1; IDC2; IDC3; etc.).
- All alpha characters used in the invoice number must be upper case.
- The entire invoice number must be less than 22 characters in length, including spaces.
Purchase Order Close Scheduled for July 27
The PO Recon (PO Close) job will be run in the nightly batch the weekend of July 27. The PO Reconciliation job closes purchase orders that have been fully matched by setting the status to “Complete”. See the SWIFT Procurement Year End Processing Tips for additional information.
Reminder, you can prevent the PO Recon job from closing a purchase order by clicking the “Hold From Further Processing” checkbox on the purchase order header if you plan on increasing the purchase order at a later date.
