The Cornerstone help desks will be closed from December 26, 2016 - January 2, 2017. The help desks will reopen on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. Eastern.  

If you need to submit an emergency payment request during this time, please follow the instructions posted here.  

The Offices of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), and Grant and Contract Accounting are closed during this period. Contact your grant specialist about proposals you plan to submit during this time. Visit the ORSP website for more information.  

Emergency Payments Our updated approach makes processing payments faster and more transparent, and supports more accurate account reconciliations. Read more to learn how to request an emergency payment for vendors and expense reimbursements.  

Monthly Close for November FY17 Period The November FY17 period close date has been extended to December 22, 2016. The additional days provide more time to submit additional transactions for November, as we work to complete interfaces for Banner Accounts Receivable and Pinnacle (telephone). December 2017 will remain open, so you can conduct transactions in November FY17 and December FY17.
