SWIFT Update October 18, 2018
Budget Reminder: Search for Unfinished Budget Journals
While entering budget journals in the Commitment Control module, you may be called away or your session may time out. The Budget Journal Entry page can be used to search for budget journals that are not fully processed. You should perform this search on a routine basis to ensure that there are no budget journals waiting to be processed.
- When you do the search, change the Budget Header Status search parameter to “not =” and select “Posted” from the drop-down menu.
- If you determine that the journal is no longer needed, go to the Budget Lines tab of the journal, select “Delete” from the Process drop-down menu, and click on the Process button.
Payment Scheduling & Vendor Discounts
State agencies should take advantage of early payment discounts.
Double check with your vendors to confirm if they offer discounts for paying early. SWIFT offers 36 different Pay Terms. Enter the full amount of the invoice and choose the correct Pay Terms. SWIFT will apply the discount during payment processing if the invoice meets the Discount Due Date.
Add additional Pay Terms by contacting the SWIFT Help Desk. For more information about payment process and scheduling, view the Date Definitions and Payment Processing reference guide.
