Schedule and Manual


If your agency needs assistance with the USPS fiscal year-end process, contact your USPS representative.

Note to CAPPS Central agencies: Agencies that converted from USPS to CAPPS Central in the current fiscal year will perform their fiscal year-end activities in CAPPS only — no fiscal year-end activities will need to be performed in USPS. Refer to CAPPS HR/Payroll Fiscal Year-End Processing Instructions (FPP T.003) for information on fiscal year-end processing in CAPPS.

For questions on fiscal year-end in CAPPS, contact your agency’s Level 1 help desk support staff. Authorized Level 1 users may contact the CAPPS help desk for additional assistance.

Applicable to

USPS agencies


State agencies using the Uniform Statewide Payroll/Personnel System (USPS) must follow the USPS Fiscal 2022 Year-End Close Schedule in the USPS Fiscal Year-End Close Manual to properly prepare USPS files for fiscal 2023.

The schedule allows agencies to complete multiple steps in the same night. These steps must be followed in sequential order and all steps on the schedule must be completed before running the September payroll.

Leave accounting agencies can begin the leave accounting fiscal year-end (FYE) close process following the completion of the employee assignment rollover. See the USPS Leave Accounting FYE Close Schedule for details.

USPS FYE processing classes are offered to assist agencies with preparing for FYE close. See the Training Calendar in this fiscal policy and procedure (FPP) for training dates/times.
