This message is for school districts only., either SAC or 21st CCLC LEAs.
As you get closer to the end-of-year and requesting final payments please do NOT submit a payment request and also your FER within the same week of each other. Remember FERs can generate a final payment. But if you want to submit a final payment request separately that is ok, again, just not within the same week of submitting your FER. The DESE ePeGS system cannot catch payment submissions that quickly and overpayments can easily occur; to which, the school district would have to issue a refund payment back to DESE. We greatly appreciate your assistance with this! Please be certain to share this information with anyone else in your district who works with budgets and payments.
