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
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 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.
ACCOUNTS PAYABLE DETAIL
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
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.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT / ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE
Payroll process revolves around the Employee Record and the Timecard File.

detail for the entire fiscal year and are also used to print the project
