BPA is required by its auditors and by Federal law to accurately record Fish and Wildlife program expenses in the appropriate fiscal year. Accruals are expenses incurred but will not be billed to BPA before late September of each fiscal year.
Starting in fiscal year 2017, accruals are automatically calculated so contractors are no longer required to submit year-end accrual estimates in Pisces. In only a few cases BPA will need to contact the sponsors directly for information.
If a contract still has an active WE-119 milestone "Accrual - Submit September estimate to BPA," it should be canceled.
