After receiving the message that the procedure has completed, please use the DAS- designated URL to access the reports. You will be prompted for a username/password to access the web site. Please contact your DAS to set up a username/password to access the web site as well as others at your district who wish to access the reports on the web site.

26 Q: I’m not ready to run my 1099s yet. Can I still close December, run CYE ADJUST and do my 1099s later? A:Yes. When you are ready to run your 1099s, you MUST run them from your B account! NOTE: They have to be run from your B account before you run MONTHEND copy for January. CYE FAQ’s 26

27 Q:What if I need to make changes to my vendors before I run F1099 in my B account? A:You must log into USASWEB using your B account username and password. When doing so, you may have to select between your B account and your live data. If you see the following screen, click on the down arrow to select the B account. CYE FAQ’s 27 NOTE: If the changes warrant the vendor to be updated in the live files as well (address change, tax ID #, etc), please make sure to log into your live account and update the vendor data.

28 Q: I forgot to run CYE ADJUST and have been processing in January. Can I still run CYE ADJUST in my live files? A:No! Manual intervention must be done from NWOCA’s fiscal staff to adjust your CTD amounts on both the account and vendor file. Please contact NWOCA. If you aren’t sure you ran it, you can confirm by running a BUDSUM, including CTD expended amounts. At the beginning of a calendar year, your CTD and your MTD expended should match. If your CYTD amounts are much higher than MTD, it’s a good indication you did not run CYE ADJUST. CYE FAQ’s 28

29 Q: I forgot to run WORKCOMP at calendar year-end time. Can I run it from my B account? A:It depends on what month your “B” account is in..  If your “B” account still contains your December date, yes, you can run WORKCOMP from your B account.  If your “B” account contains January or later months data, then you must contact NWOCA and we will copy your CYE data to your “D” account and you can run it from there.

36  For December release, we added new warnings to VALACT regarding OPUs. Near the end of the financial manifest period, ODE implemented warnings on OPUs against certain function and object codes. We have now implemented those same warnings in USAS. For certain function and object codes, the OPU should be an OPU tied to a specified building and not the district-wide OPU. The account validation details are in Chapter 6.3 Expenditure Record in the EMIS manual Miscellaneous Update 36

37  Funds 494, 504, and 532 were removed as valid funds per the AOS USAS Manual Appendix A  A problem was corrected in the EISCD program which caused an incomplete label for the EIS801 official audits report on the EISCDROM website Miscellaneous Updates 37

38 The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) is a biennial (i.e., every other school year) survey required by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). Schools districts received an from OCR last May about the CRDC. Detail information regarding this reporting can be found at: Section XII of the collection includes data about school expenditures. Please refer to the Civil Rights reporting instructions on their website. USPS has a CRDC report that should provide information regarding staff reporting below, however Lines 40 and 44 deal with non-personnel expenditures. 38 CRDC

39  USAS does not contain a report for non-personnel expenditures but we believe your latest 2014H_EXPND_AMT_BY_CAT CSV file on your EMIS Web Reports should be a good starting point. The expenditure categories used by ODE already breaks out most of what is needed for the Civil Rights reporting and the amounts are already allocated out to the school by IRN when necessary.  On our WIKI page https://wiki.nwoca.org/display/fiscal/Home. We have provided a procedure to pull this CSV into EXCEL, then sort and filter to include certain categories and account dimensions for non-personnel expenditures. https://wiki.nwoca.org/display/fiscal/Home CRDC Non-Personnel Expenditures 39
