Q. I've received an email escalation notice, what should I do or consider?

A. Escalation notices may indicate future difficulty meeting the ledger reconciliation and certification timeline schedule published on this website. It is strongly recommended that department management assess the situation and develop a plan to ensure ledgers are reconciled and certified within the time schedule. Department management may need to confer with their unit's CFAO upon receiving such notices.
