Advisory Number: 1
Advisory Name: Fringe Benefit and Indirect Cost (FBIC) Assessments: 1st quarter billing for April - June 2018
Date Issued: 04/22/2016 Date Last Updated: 07/10/2018
Subject:
Fringe Benefit and Indirect Cost (FBIC) Assessments: 1st quarter billing for April - June 2018
Guidance:
The 1st quarter FBIC billing process has been completed. Agencies must retrieve the NYAR0260 (FBIC Invoice) and NYGL0442 (FBIC Ledger) reports from SFS and begin making payments. The 1st quarter (April-June 2018) billing reports must be run as follows:

NYAR0260: Enter the invoice date of 07/09/2018 in the ‘From Date’ and ‘To Date’ fields.

NYGL0442: Enter 03/30/2012 in the ‘From Date’ field and the current date in the ‘To Date’.

Payment of the quarterly bills is due within 30 days of receipt. Agencies should ensure that they have sufficient segregation authority to allow vouchers to be processed in a timely manner. If insufficient budget authority exists, agencies should submit budget journal transactions to DOB for approval. Any questions on budget journal transactions should be directed to your agency budget examiner.

Accounts Payable vouchers created during the FBIC billing process that have over forty nine distribution lines will be deleted by the Bureau of State Expenditures within two business days following the completion of the billing process. Agencies must obtain deleted voucher information from the NYAP3103 (Voucher Deletion) query. These vouchers must be manually re-keyed by the agencies in SFS under a new voucher number in the Accounts Payable module using the same Invoice number, Vendor ID, and amount from the deleted voucher.

Additional information on the FBIC process, updated instructions on retrieving required reports including a table of prior quarter invoice dates and contact information is available in the Guide to Financial Operations, Chapter VII, Section 9 - Fringe Benefits and Indirect Costs.

FBIC Automation: Implementation
The automated FBIC process will run for the first time in Production on Wednesday, July 11 for PS charges between 7/1/18-7/10/18. As a reminder, for the quarter ending June 30, 2018, FBIC charges were billed using the 'old' interagency billing and voucher process. Agencies are expected to pay these and any outstanding bills promptly using the 'old' voucher process. Agencies should continue to work with DOB budget examiners for any FBIC-related budget concerns to clean up outstanding bills by March 31, 2019. Visit the FBIC Automation page on SFS Secure for all project information.

It is important to note that agencies should update and submit all outstanding credit (negative) vouchers immediately before submitting the remaining debit (positive) vouchers so that the credits can be offset against the debits in the nightly pay cycle.
