April General Fund Continuing Budget Freeze Date in Anaplan

In prior years, BFP established a General Fund continuing budget cutoff date in mid-April to prepare for the following fiscal year’s C-ROLL (continuing budget roll forward).

Starting this year, the C-ROLL will now be prepared in the new Anaplan budget tool. Campus units will use the budget tool to plan their FY25 starting General Fund continuing budget at the speedtype and account code levels. General ledger data is currently flowing into the budget tool via a nightly automatic process, meaning that budget journal entries submitted to PeopleSoft and approved on the general ledger will automatically appear in Anaplan after the CIW nightly refresh.

On Friday, April 19, 2024, this nightly refresh will be paused. Campus units should therefore not submit any General Fund continuing budget journal entries starting on April 19. Continuing budget journal entries submitted after April 19 will be denied.

If you must submit a FY24 continuing General Fund budget change after April 19, the best practice is:

  • Submit as a FY24 temporary budget JE
  • Manually update desired FY25 changes to continuing General Fund budget in the budget tool. This will ensure that your unit's FY25 initial General Fund continuing budget allocation is correct.

FY25 starting General Fund continuing budget plans in Anaplan are due by Friday, May 31. After this date, a review and approval workflow will take place, and BFP will submit approved budget plans via journal entry into PeopleSoft, effective July 1 of FY25.
