The Department of FISCal continually makes updates and enhancements to the system based on feedback from our end users. Our goal is to improve usability while maintaining the highest level of security for the state’s data.

The following enhancements were released in the FI$Cal system in June 2020 (descriptions include ServiceNow case numbers):

Req to Check: (AP, PO, Asset Management, Procurement)

  • Modified PO Sales Tax page to include a Custom Tax Rate field, which will be available only for locations outside of California, so users can enter the rate by looking at a third-party website. Based on the Custom Tax Rate entered, Sales Tax will get calculated. (CS0077903)
  • Updated code to disable Adding or Deleting a Distribution Line for a PO Voucher.
    2.Code has been updated so that the pop-up message, while closing the voucher, will only give two options to the user. One is ‘Yes,’ which will Restore Encumbrance and other is ‘No’, which will cancel the operation of closing the voucher (CS0192620)
