General Information About Program Financial Summaries

The entire financial summary of a program uses configurable fiscal periods, where the fiscal year can begin any day of the year and can use as its periods the familiar twelve Gregorian calendar months, or the fiscal year can reflect any standard or non-standard retail calendar. Only fiscal periods that your administrator has generated are displayed. For information about generating fiscal periods, see the Generating Fiscal Periods document.

An approved budget, forecast and actual costs, and forecast and actual benefits exist only as part of a financial summary, not independently. They cannot be edited directly on the Financial Summary page, but authorized users can edit them on separate pages accessed from the financial summary.
