Open commitments

Open Commitments

  • Purchase Orders (PO’s) and Contracts

    • are instruments that commit portions of the budget for select purposes.

    • The “open” portion of a PO or Contract is what hasn’t been spent yet.

  • Reasons for open balances:

    • some PO’s & Contracts are encumbered (or committed) for the entire year and expended slowly over time

    • Timing – invoice(s) not received yet

Balance available formula revised budget ytd actual open commitments

Balance AvailableFormula: + Revised Budget - (YTD Actual & Open Commitments)

  • Amount of latest revised budget that hasn’t been spent or earned

    • positive number equals balance available to spend

    • negative number equals amount overdrawn (spent in excess of budget)

Consolidated budget to date

ConsolidatedBudget % to Date

  • This percentage represents the portion of the fiscal year that has transpired.

    • For example, December is the 6th month of the fiscal year. It is half way through the fiscal year. The budget percentage to date is 50%.

    • This provides a useful reference for the “% of Usage” in the program statements – especially when spending is fairly regular throughout the year (as in salaries).
