Encumbrance Suspension for Open Activity (Unspent) Roll and Lapse
The Contract Open Activity Roll (CT, PC, and RQS transactions) and Lapse (CT, EAV, GAE, GAP, IE, PC, RPO, and RQS transactions) will occur on the weekend of Saturday, September 5. MMARS will be unavailable that weekend.

In preparation for the Roll and Lapse; departments must refrain from processing encumbrance transactions, including interfaces, from Thursday, September 3 until Monday, September 7.  This includes entering, editing, validating or submitting CT, EAV, GAE, GAP, IE, PC, RPO, and RQS transactions. 

Starting on Thursday, September 3, the Office of the Comptroller will be monitoring the Document Catalog to ensure that departments are not attempting to update any encumbrance transactions.  Your cooperation with this process is greatly appreciated.
(See complete information on page 48 of the Close/Open Instructions).

Post-Open Activity Roll Review
After the Open Activity Roll is completed, departments should review the MMARS Document Catalog for any CTs or PCs that rejected during the roll. These will have a Create User ID of ‘ROLLID’; the Phase will be “Draft”; the Create Date will be 9/05.

Departments should not delete these Draft versions but should review the error messages and, if possible, make the required corrections. Only zero dollar modifications that correct accounting detail errors (appropriations, program details, etc.) are allowed. Departments should not change Commodity or Accounting line amounts. The Comptroller’s office will work with departments to get any rejected Roll encumbrances processed. Depending on the number of rejects and severity of the errors, CTR may be contacting individual departments with specific instructions for correcting their rejects. If you have any questions or need assistance with your corrections, please send an email with a Subject: XXX (Dept. ID Code) Sept. Roll Reject Correction to
