Previously submitted Requisitions not approved prior to cutoff on May 15, 2018, 5 pm – will not route – here’s the process:

 Funds for those previously submitted Requisitions are pre-encumbered and need to be unencumbered
 Copy the existing Requisition number
 Save it – note the new Requisition number
 Cancel the original Requisition, be sure to budget check the canceled requisition.
 Check the budget cancellation to ensure the pre-encumbrance has returned to the available balance
 Then do a budget check and submit the new Requisition.



Previously submitted Budget Transfers/Journals not posted prior to cutoff on May 15, 2018, 5 pm – Will not route – how to resolve:

 Copy the existing Budget Transfer/Journal and do the standard processing of submission for approval then posting
 Delete old Budget Transfer/Journal if it has not been posted yet
 If the Budget Journal/Transfer has been posted without going through the approval process, then the Journal or Transfer has to be unposted and then copied and submitted again for approval



What is Happening:

ONEPeralta will replace PROMT, reduce manual paperwork, and implement electronic approval processes in order to make your day-to-day work more efficient. Updates will also add quarter end closes to the year-end close process. We are preparing to launch this modernized process and system on May 21, 2018.

Why The Transition:

We are placing the journey of every PCCD employee at the center of what is done and creating systems and policies that can adapt to shifts in employee skill requirements and the changing nature of work.

  • Nimble, adaptable administrative systems and policies
  • Reduced complexity and increased standardization
  • Access to consistent and easy-to-understand data

How This Will Help You:

  • No need to fill out triplicate paper forms
  • Automatic online approvals for requests
  • Functionality to streamline and simplify processes
  • Enhanced self-service so that users can check the status of their request and managers can approve from their mobile device
  • Quarter end close will make General Ledger reconciliation less time consuming

How You Can Prepare:
