Maryland Courts

April 14, 2014


The GEARS project team in partnership with the Department of Budget and Finance, District Court Headquarters and the Department of Procurement and Contract Administration will be offering additional training to assist users in understanding processes to successfully perform their jobs.

Procure to Pay - These sessions will cover the areas of requisitions, Express PO’s, receipts and voucher processing, as well as the Voucher Activity Inquiry tool. As time allows, students will be able to process actual work. Please bring this work with you to class. Please note that there will be some modification of the topics to meet specific District Court functionality during their identified sessions.

Order to Cash – These sessions will be a refresher for the courts that have been “live” with GEARS since the fall 2013. Topics will include bad check processing, post FAR corrections, AR revenue refunds, end of month transactions, local revenue, interest and reports, CCU & P&P adjustments. This will be a good opportunity to ensure that you are following processes and maybe learn some tips from others.

General Ledger (GL) and Commitment Control (KK) Entries and Reporting
– These sessions will cover the areas of journal entries, budget transfers and reporting options within both the general ledger and the commitment control modules. Reporting which will be reviewed includes the Trial Balance, Budget Status, Budget Overview, Ledger Inquiry with drilldowns, and the Voucher Activity Inquiry.

Supervisory Overview
– These sessions are primarily for those Judiciary staff members who receive approval workflow notices and will include what should be reviewed during the approval process, as well as touch on some of the reporting options.

Please review the attachment for additional details and the registration form.
