IDC Overview

  • IDC’s defined: internal billing transactions for goods or services (i.e. telecom charges, CE&O work order charges, parking services).

  • Importance of following these guidelines for IDC’s:

    ▪ in adherence with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)

    ▪ consistent accounting treatment across all University units

    ▪do not result in an overall increase or decrease of income and/or expense to the University’s financials

    ▪do not misstate the operating results of any University unit


Idc operating procedures

IDC Operating Procedures

University Customers

  • Internal customers: the customer is another unit or department within the University. This department will have their own operating index that is part of the University’s financial chart of accounts.

  • External customers: the customer is a separate entity to the University and is not operating under the University’s financial chart of accounts.


Idc operating procedures1

IDC Operating Procedures

  • ▪ These guidelines will only apply to internal customers. Refer to Accounts Payable Payment Processing Procedures for more information on payments to external customers.

Accounting for IDC Transactions

  • Unrestricted & Restricted Units (E&G, Designated, & Grant Index types):

    • IDC’s must not result in an increase or decrease in overall University income or expenditures

    • all IDC’s among unrestricted and restricted units should be recorded to an expense account for both the debit and credit side of the transaction.


Accounting for idc transactions2

Accounting for IDC Transactions

  • IDC’s for Goods:

    • The charge or debit side of the transaction should hit the internal customer’s appropriate index and expense account (7XXXX).

    • The credit side of the transaction (representing the department’s sale to the internal customer) should hit the billing department’s appropriate index and the interdepartmental sale account code (77020).

Accounting for IDC Transactions

  • IDC’s for Goods:

    Example:

    The Kent State University Bursar’s Office sold the Controller’s office a stapler, the Bursar’s Office can process an IDC that would look like the following……..

    • Note: The billing department (Bursar’s Office) would initiate the IDC transaction.

      D100304-72017 (Controller’s Office, Office Supplies Expense) $$$

      C 100303-77020 (Bursar’s Office, Interdepartmental Sale) $$$

Accounting for idc transactions6

Accounting for IDC Transactions

  • Auxiliary & Agency Units:

    • These units bill internal and external customers.

    • Since Auxiliary enterprises and most agency units are self-supporting or business-type enterprises, meaning their operating expenditures should not exceed their revenue earned; these units should recognize interdepartmental sales from internal customers as revenue.

    • The credit side of the transaction should be recording the billing department’s sale to the internal customer.


Accounting for idc transactions7

Accounting for IDC Transactions

  • IDC’s for Auxiliary & Agency Units:

    • The Controller’s Office has established a specific revenue account code to record all transactions for the interdepartmental sale (53086) related to Auxiliary and Agency IDCs.

    • The charge or debit side of the transaction should hit the internal customer’s appropriate index and expense account (7XXXX).


Accounting for idc transactions8

Accounting for IDC Transactions

  • IDC’s for Auxiliary & Agency Units:

    Example:

    Kent State University Health Services provides medical supplies to the Controller’s Office, KSU Health Services can process an IDC that would look like the following……..

    • Note: The billing department (KSU Health Services) would initiate the IDC transaction.

      D100304-72016 (Controller’s Office Exp-Medical Supplies) $$$

Corrections reimbursement of expense entries excluding grants

Corrections & Reimbursement of Expense Entries (excluding Grants)

  • Since the inception of the online journal entry process, departments have been approved to process corrections and departmental reimbursement of expense through the normal IDC process while using the same rule class type (IDC).

  • Effective 7/1/10, departments may continue using the same Banner online journal entry process to submit corrections and departmental reimbursement of expense, however using a separate rule class type (no longer using IDC).


Corrections reimbursement of expense entries excluding grants1

Corrections & Reimbursement of Expense Entries (excluding Grants)

  • The rule class type for corrections and reimbursement of expense entries will be (COR).

  • This is necessary to differentiate the intent of the transactions coming through the approval process and to establish a clearer, more defined set of guidelines when processing diverse types of entries.

  • Example of a Reimbursement of Expense:

    The Controller’s Office purchased printer cartridges for the entire Controller’s Office and Payroll department using the Controller’s Office departmental purchasing card and charged the full amount to the Controller’s office index upfront. The total amount of expense that was recorded to the Controller’s Office was $300.00. Of that total amount that was expensed to the Controller’s Office, $25.00 belongs to the Payroll Office.

Accounting for corrections reimbursement of expense4

Accounting for Corrections & Reimbursement of Expense

  • Please Note: The main difference between the IDC process and the correcting entry and reimbursement of expense process is the difference in the journal entry rule class codes.

  • For correcting entries and reimbursement of expense entries, rule class code “COR” will need to be selected rather than IDC.

  • Additionally, in the transaction description field, please be sure to reference the original document that was posted in error.


Corrections reimbursement of expense entries related to grants

Corrections & Reimbursement of Expense Entries Related to Grants

  • Grants Accounting requires a separate process for corrections and reimbursement of expense entries related to grant funds. These types of entries should be submitted on a Cost Transfer Request form. The Project Director’s signature must be obtained. The form can be located on the BAS website under the Forms Library.

  • When submitting the Cost Transfer Request form, be sure to include a justification for the transfer, including how this expense will benefit the grant. All requests for transfers that are over 90 days from the date of the original charge require the approval of Sponsored Programs. An explanation of why the request is over 90 days and what measures have been taken to ensure that this type of delay does not occur in the future, must be included.
