The November 2, 2018 bi-weekly payroll will post in October.  All BEACON bi-weekly pay days that occur on the 1st,2nd, or 3rd of the month will be posted to the prior month. Pay days falling on the 1st or 2nd will have both the GL entries and the CMCS requisitions dated in the prior month.  Pay days falling on the 3rd will post to GL with an effective date of the last day of the prior month and CMCS requisitions posted in the current month as a “set back” to the prior month.    Please be aware that NCAS postings and CMCS requisitions will be dated in the month prior to the pay date. Please make sure all applicable personnel are made aware of this notification to ensure your agency has the funds available in the month prior to the actual payroll date.

9/12/18 12:15 PM

On behalf of the NC Office of the State Controller and the Department of the State Treasurer, we want to make you aware of potential changes to system availability due to the impending hurricane.  Both OSC and DST have disaster recovery plans in place and ready to engage, which include working remotely.  Power outages are our biggest concern at this time, which would inhibit our staff's ability to work remotely and keep NCAS, CMCS and Core Banking running.  As long as we have power, in office or remotely, our staff will maintain the daily functions in NCAS, CMCS and Core Banking.  
We encourage you to consider entering wires, transfers, Positive Pay files and requisitions earlier than planned this week, considering the uncertainty of Friday’s weather and its impact on power availability.  Warrants presented without valid Positive Pay files will be returned.  Requisitions and transfers can be entered into CMCS until 10:30 AM for update that day.  Wires can be entered into Core Banking until 10:00 AM for processing that day. 
Please also keep in mind that historically there is an uptick in fraud during disaster related events.  Be mindful during this time - limit changes allowed in self-service portals to bank account information, and monitor your bank accounts carefully.  If you encounter any suspicious activity, please notify DST and OSC immediately.  
We are monitoring this storm closely and will notify you of any potential changes to daily schedules as soon as we can. If you have any questions during this time, please let us know.
Please continue to contact OSC Support Services at or 919-707-0795 for NCAS and CMCS support throughout this event. For Core Banking support, please email or call 919-814-3916.

OSC will begin checking certifications for the month of July 2018 on Monday, August 13, 2018.  Agencies that are required to certify July reports with budget in place per OSBM must ensure that both their certified budget batches and 2nd year repeat revisions are posted in NCAS and all budget codes are in balance prior to pre-certification.  For questions regarding when your agency budgets must be posted, please contact your OSBM analyst. 

8/7/18 1:55 PM Check Printing
The issue with the check printing software CSeries has been resolved.  Users may proceed with printing checks.  Thank you for your patience with this issue.
8/6/18 1:45 PM General Ledger Detail Purge 
On August 3rd, the OSC purged the General Ledger detail posting entries for FY 2016/2017 from the online system and the agency specific detail ledger (DAPG67) files. Only GL entries with an effective date of 6/30/17 to the current date are available online through the Posted Entry Query (GL220) screen.  The agency specific detail ledger files contain postings from 07/01/17 through the current date. FY2016/2017 details have been relocated to the EOY files.
7/13/18 11:00 AM REMINDER
A reminder to Fixed Asset Officers – all Capitalized (CAP) Assets in the temporary level must be processed before the July 20th deadline.  At the end of July 20th, all temporary assets that remain in the CAP temporary level will be purged.  Please clear all assets that are appearing under the 7999 control number by close of business July 20th.  The 7999 control number is a “suspense account” where the system does not recognize the account number on the 260 screen in the Fixed Asset module.  Agencies should run the C-U-FA-INFORMATION-RPT-RUN report from the FAPUBLIC library in Information Expert (IE) to identify items that appear in the suspense account. 
7/11/18 1:25 PM The new process for adding and changing vendors in the North Carolina Accounting System (NCAS) via SharePoint will go live on Monday, July 16, 2018.  This new process will replace the current process of requesting vendor adds and changes via VSU screen under entity VADD.  As of Monday, agencies will no longer be able to use the VSU screen under entity VADD in NCAS.
