    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update12
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • There are no changes to the manually entered distorting items such as election expenses, flow-through grants, alterations/renovations, and fines/penalties. This data is used in the Federal Restricted and Unrestricted Indirect Rate.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update13
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • What is a distorting item?

    • Distorting items are activities that do not occur regularly each year; that is, they “distort” the regular expenditures. Districts will need to determine and document expenditures they consider significant and distorting. Manual entries are required. This data is used in the Federal Restricted and Unrestricted Indirect Rate.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update14
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Distorting items-manual entries (cont.)

    • What is considered “significant”?

      Districts have to individually answer this question.

      What happened during the school year in your district

      that “distorts” your expenditures? Normally this would

      be something unusual or unexpected that does not happen in the normal operation of your district that inflated your expenditures for the year. This amount could be $5,000 or $35,000 depending on the size of your district.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update15
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Distorting Items-manual entries (cont.)

    • Flow-through grants are awards received by a school district and “passed through” to another district. If the grant amount is $100,000, and the district passes $25,000 to another district, the amount of “flow-through” is $25,000.

    • Although the federal language includes contingencies as a distorting item, they are generally not applicable to school districts.

    • Election expenses charged to Program 97, Activity 11 are considered distorting if they are significant.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update16
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Distorting Items-manual entries (cont.)

    • Renovations and alterations may be considered distorting if the expenditures are unusual, unexpected, significant, and distort the districts normal expenditures.

      For example: The winter wind storms damaged the roof on a building. If the repairs were expended in the General Fund, the cost to renovate the building distorts the normal district expenditures. These expenditures may be considered distorting. Do not include Capital Outlay (Object. 9).


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update17
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Distorting Items-manual entries (cont.)

    • Fines and penalties assessed against the district by L&I, OSHA, WISHA, or IRS fees for filing late payroll taxes may be considered distorting if significant.

    • Late fees associated with Accounts Payable are not considered a fine or penalty.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update18
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • What is an Indirect Cost Rate?

    • An Indirect Cost Rate is a means of determining, in a reasonable manner, the percentage of allowable general management costs that benefit each federal program or activity.

    • What is an Indirect Expenditure?

    • Indirect costs (expenditures) are generally administrative costs such as the salaries and expenses for staff engaged in organization-wide (general) activities.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update19
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • The Restricted and Unrestricted Federal Indirect Rate Calculations have not changed. The data on the left side at the bottom will display data from the 2009–10 F-196. This data is used in the calculation on the 2011–12 F-196 for rates you will use in 2013–14.

    • Federal indirect rates are calculated to four decimal places.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update20
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • There are no changes to the manually entered Indirect Expenditures. The district should enter audit costs, legal costs, public relations expenditures, termination leave for federally supported staff, Information System expenditures, Pupil Management and Safety costs, and space and occupancy costs, if a cost plan has been established.

    • Remember that legal costs are very restrictive. Only enter costs associated with the interpretation of laws, regulations, or board policy. Do not include legal costs for any lawsuits, preparation of lawsuits, or negotiation expenses.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update21
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    Indirect Expenditures-manual entries (cont.)

    • Examples of allowable legal costs are:

      • Review of insurance policy to determine if a claim should be reimbursed by the insurance company.

      • Review of termination policy.

      • Interpretation of bankruptcy rules when a vendor files bankruptcy.

    • Do not enter student records for Information Systems. Only enter costs associated with fiscal systems (i.e., WSIPC fees, districtwide IT support).


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update22
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Indirect Expenditures-manual entries

    • Superintendent Costs: (item 348) If your district is small and your Superintendent and Superintendent’s secretary have multiple responsibilities related to Activity 13 or 14, or 72–75, an entry can be made in item 345. Large districts whose Superintendent’s responsibilities are 100% Activity 12 will not have an entry in this item number. Do not include Capital Outlay (Object 9).


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update23
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Indirect Expenditures-manual entries (cont.)

    • Public Relations Costs: (item 364) Activity 15 is used for the district’s public relations. Any public relations costs associated with federal programs should be charged to Program 51 or 52. Public relations, to communicate or conduct general liaison and keep the public informed on matters of public concern, but not charged directly to a specific program, should be recorded in Program 97, Activity 15. Do not include costs designed solely to promote the governmental unit. If no entry is made in this item number, expenditures for public relations will NOT be included in the Indirect Pool. This will decrease the indirect rate. Do not include Capital Outlay (Object 9).


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update24
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Indirect Expenditures-manual entries (cont.)

    • Termination Leave: (item 365) Termination leave paid to federally supported staff upon resignation or discharge cannot be charged to a federal program. If the termination leave is coded to a local or state program, it may be considered an indirect expenditure. Coding the leave costs to Activity 13 or 14 ensures inclusion in the indirect pool and no entry would be necessary in this item number.


    Fy 2011 12 f 196 update25
    FY 2011–12 F-196 Update

    • Indirect Expenditures-manual entries (cont.)

    • Information Systems Costs: (item 370) Record costs for district-wide Information Systems, Program 97, Activity 72.

    • Do not include expenditures for student records such as student records fees, software, or student records staff. If no entry is made in item number 370, expenditures for Information Systems will NOT be included in the Indirect Pool. This will decrease the indirect rate. Do not include Capital Outlay (Object 9).


    Maintenance of effort and recovery and carryover templates
    Maintenance of Effort and Recovery and Carryover Templates

    • The Federal Cross-Cutting and Special Education MOE tests are complete. The MOE templates have been updated and posted to our website under Training/Tools at http://www.k12.wa.us/safs/TT/tt.asp.

    • Districts are encouraged to access these templates to run the MOE tests for mid-year and budget purposes and the 2011–12 recovery and carryover information.

    • Chapter VI has been updated and posted to the 2012-13 ABFR along with the current item dictionary.


    Other notes of interest
    Other Notes of Interest

    • After your ESD approves your F-196, and you feel that your financial statements are correct, you can proceed with your year-end close. Any review of the district’s F-196 by OSPI does not affect the districts year-end close process.

    • If your district requires that an F-196 revision be made, please contact Ramona Garner via email at: ([email protected]) to request an MS Word document. Upon receipt of your email I will send the district’s F-196 and instructions for making revisions. Don’t forget to copy your ESD when making a revision request.


    Questions comments
    Questions/Comments??

    • Questions and comments are always welcome and appreciated. Whenever possible, emailing your questions is beneficial in assuring that OSPI understands your question and allows a “paper trail” for OSPI and the district if the question should arise again.
