Reconciliation of Departmental Accounting Records to the Central
University Financial Accounting System

Departments and activities must maintain files of financial
transaction documents that are sufficient to monitor the accuracy
and completeness of data entered into the University Financial
Accounting System.

                                                                  
Monthly statements for each account (AMO90s and AMO91s) are
forwarded through the appropriate fiscal administrator to the
responsible person named for each established account.  Each such
responsible person should assure that the content of these
statements is promptly reconciled to the department's transaction
files.

See also Procedure 1-4, "Reconciliation of Monthly Departmental
Accounting Records to AM090/91."

Wherever possible, requirements for departmental accounting
information should be met by reference to data contained in the
University Financial Accounting System and not by the maintenance
of independent departmental accounting systems.
