Carry Forward of Fiscal Year End Open Encumbrances

Carry Forward of Fiscal Year End Open Encumbrances

To find out how an account's encumbrances will roll, check the fund associated with your index and compare it to the table below.
At the end of each fiscal year, any encumbrances (i.e., Purchase orders, Travel authorizations, etc.) that have not been paid are rolled into the next fiscal year. Depending on the fund code attached to your index, encumbrances are rolled as either committed or uncommitted. Committed means that encumbrances are identified as having been rolled from the prior year while Uncommitted do not maintain the distinction of being from the prior year.

For those funds that do not begin with an 11xxxx or 2xxxxx, a budget equal to the encumbrance is rolled as well and the budget may be classified restricted or unrestricted. Restricted means that any remaining budget after the encumbrance is liquidated will not be available for use in the current year. Unrestricted budget means that the budget will remain in your index and be available for use in the current year. No budgets will roll with the encumbrances for funds that begin with an 11xxxx or 2xxxxx.
