Monthly Fixed Asset Depreciation in AFIS

Monthly fixed asset depreciation will process this weekend for July, and the following weekend for August.  Depreciation will not post for any fixed asset that has a document pending.  In order to ensure that depreciation is posted for all in service depreciable assets, please ensure that any pending fixed asset documents for these assets are completed prior the depreciation batch run. 

AFIS Production System Refresh

In the next 15 minutes, we will be refreshing the AFIS Production System.  You should be able to log back into the system directly afterwards.

Internal Transfers – Accounting Period Closing

GAO will be closing accounting period 2 at the end of next week.  We are asking that all agencies review their outstanding transfers and get them processed as quickly as possible.  Completing the transfer process before the month is closed will reduce the number of errors agencies are receiving due to the prior period being closed.  All agencies should go out to their document catalog and type ‘ITA’ in the document identifier code.  Select phase of ‘Draft’ in the document status section. This will give you a list of all transfers that have not been processed by your agency.
