15.10 Budget Status Reporting

15.10 Budget Status Reporting, Chancellor's Office Business Policies & Procedures

Purpose:

To establish policies and procedures associated with budget status reporting.

Policy:

Department Heads will review the status of their departmental operating budgets at least quarterly.

Procedures:

  1. Periodically (at a minimum of quarterly), after reconciliation of FIS activity, Business Processing Staff produces and distributes reports on budget status. These reports should include budget status for payroll and all other expenditures (e.g., services and supplies):
    • Payroll budget status report - This report includes (for each organization code, index, and account code) employee's name, fiscal period, monthly amount, year-to-date amount, remaining encumbrance, and the total for year-to-date plus encumbrance.
    • S&S budget status report - This report includes (for each organization code, index, and account code) adjusted budget, report period activity, year-to-date activity, budget reservations, and available balance.
  2. Business Processing Staff sends these reports to the Department Head.
  3. After review, the Department Head signs/initials and dates the budget status report and returns it to Business Processing Staff.
  4. To ensure completion and routing of this report Business Processing Staff may want to use a document similar to the sample Tracking Summary for Budget, Accounts Receivable, and Contract Status Reports.
  5. Business Processing Staff files the report in archive files.
