There is no way to “de-fund” a position in the DBT. The only way the funding that is currently set on a DBT is ever charged is if there is a person in the position getting paid.
So if the position is sitting vacant the funding should never be charged and all salary encumbrances are liquidated at the time the person is terminated through the HR process.
As far as the new fiscal year budget. It will be up to you whether you continue to budget positions in a new year.
