Account Deficits

Monitor project balances to the pool level. An important part of account reconciliation is ensuring monies are available to cover all transactions for the month.

Also, view projects at the end of each month, as a follow-up, to make sure there are no deficits at the pool level.

If a deficit exists at the end of the month, research it and resolve it quickly. This is important for both fiscal year and multi-year chartfields. If assistance is needed to resolve the deficit, call the PAF team.

Make sure to have ready all of the information that was gathered prior to calling PAF. 

Pay close attention to payroll as it is the most often type of deficit.
