The primary focus for the General Ledger Module involves activity for General Ledger Transactions, the Chart of Accounts (Trial Balance), and the Budgets Accounts and Financial Reporting. The flexibility of the Chart of Accounts allows up to 13 distinct accounting periods for any given Fiscal Year.  The advantage of  breaking the Fiscal Year into thirteen 4-week accounting periods enables more accurate comparison of  Historical Cost (This Year vs. Last Year) when printing Financial Statements.

Several features built into Transaction Files allow subsidiary file references (Accounts Payable Invoices, Vendors Purchase and/or Payment History, Contract Line Item Cost Information, etc.) to automatically be updated when posting General Ledger Transactions. These processes allow for up-to-date information at the touch of a button.  No other processing is required to rapidly obtain precise and accurate information for the various subsidiary records.

Activity is summarized by accounting period in the Chart of Accounts, and transactions are stored on-line for the entire fiscal year. The transactions may be sorted by any of the fields contained within each transaction, and they may be printed in the format of a General Ledger. A detailed General Ledger may be printed for any Account, or range of Accounts, for any period.

Budgets may be entered for each accounting period, by Account.  Several pre-defined functions enable the transition of actual costs from the Chart of Accounts to flow into the Budget Records, allowing for quick development of budget information.

User-defined financial statements may be printed, comparing budget to actual for any period (month, quarter, year, etc).





The Accounts Payable process involves entering A/P Invoices, which in turn creates a General Ledger Transaction used to update the Chart of Accounts and, if applicable, the Contract Records for the direct costs incurred. Accounts Payable Invoices may be paid selectively by the Vendor or by Accounts Payable Invoice Due Date, creating a Disbursement Transaction used to print Accounts Payable checks and also to record the payment in the Chart of Accounts.






The work performed in the Project Management Module involves maintenance of the Contract Cost and Contract Description Records, the printing of the Project Status Cost and Billing Reports from data created in the other modules, and the creation of the applied burden transactions that will be posted to the General Ledger. 


Billings and Receipts transactions may also be entered in this module. In order to print the Accounts Receivable Aging and Detailed Direct Cost reports, the transactions may be sorted by Contract Number, the General Ledger Account, Invoice Reference Number, and Date.





The Payroll process revolves around the Employee Record and the Timecard File. Timecards are entered from the employees' time sheets and update the Employee Records to generate paychecks. The timecards are stored by both employee and by charge number allowing for Employee, Direct, and Indirect labor reports to be printed without sorting. Timecards are maintained in detail for the entire fiscal year and are also used to print the project management reports.
