The interest rate is adjusted quarterly using the prime rate as posted in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of the month preceding the calendar quarter.

KFS Fiscal Year End Reminders

Target Audience: KFS Users

Please note the following system activities during fiscal year end:

  • Fiscal Year Maker was run on 6/8/2024.  This batch job copies table values that are specific to a fiscal year into the new upcoming fiscal year.  Please make sure any updates to sub-object codes after this date are maintained properly in the new fiscal year. 
  • KFS transactional eDocs (except REQS, POs, POAs) that are in ENROUTE status will be auto disapproved on 7/1.
    • The list of eDocs that were auto disapproved will be distributed to the PageCenterX mailboxes in the KFS | GL folder called autoDisapprovedDocs_FOnnn.csv.  The FO Code is assigned based on the document initiator’s primary chart-org.  If these documents still require processing, please copy and resubmit them in the new FY.
  • KFS will be in restricted status from 7/2-4 and will only be accessible by central office staff.
  • KFS will be open for FY 2025 activity without balances on 7/5/2024.
