The ANNUAL Deposit Account TIMELINE

OCLS asks the college libraries to deposit funds to their account at least twice a year: in April, at the beginning of the fiscal year; and at the mid-way point in August.

To determine an appropriate amount to invoice for, OCLS prepares an account forecast for each college (the “Estimate” reports). The colleges have a month to carefully review and approve their Estimates before we issue the invoices.

In advance of year-end, OCLS prepares another account report to project each college’s fiscal year closing balance (the “Balance Statement” reports). We will issue a third and final top up invoice when your Balance Statement shows a deficit.
