BPS Supply Chain Guideline Forms

OASBO Finance Workshop


Purpose

Purpose

  • The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of selected changes to the 2010-11 Estimates Forms relating to:

    • the financial reporting of School Generated Funds,

    • compliance with the Broader Public Sector Supply Chain Guideline


Changes to financial reporting rationale

Changes to Financial Reporting: Rationale

  • School board financial statements provide very limited information on school generated funds.

    • No information on revenue or expenditure components which total $596M province-wide

    • Additional reporting requirements builds on the OASBO Finance Committee – Guidelines for School Generated Funds.

  • Additional information on school generated funds in a school board’s financial reporting will:

    • in no way alter the existing control and management of school generated funds and activities;

    • nor alter a school’s ability to use the funds for the purpose for which they were raised.


Changes to financial reporting components

Changes to Financial Reporting: Components

  • School Boards will report five revenue and five expense components (see below) by elementary and secondary beginning with the 2010-11 school year.

  • Supplementary information, not subject to audit.  

  • The audited financial statements will continue to report school generated funds as a single revenue line and a single expense line in the Statement of Operations.

  • EFIS Forms will be updated with the new requirements in the 2010-11 estimates.

Definitions revenue components

Definitions: Revenue Components

  • These categories were taken in large part from the Chart of Accounts in the OASBO Finance Committee’s Guidelines for School Generated Funds – Chart of Accounts pg. 87-90.

  • Field trips/excursions (including admission, transportation and accommodation)

    • All monies raised/received to support the costs of in province or out of country excursions or any field trips (including admissions, busing and accommodations).

    • Examples – trips to Science Centre, farm visit, museum trip, trip to Greece.

  • Capital asset fundraising

    • All monies raised/received for the purchase of capital assets. If funds are received for the specific purpose of purchasing a capitalizable asset, the purchase of that asset would be recorded here. (Even if funds were raised for library resources or supplies, if these items are capitalizable, they default to the capital asset category first).

    • Examples – fundraising towards the construction of playgrounds, school gardens.

  • Fundraising for external charities

    • All money raised/received in support of an external charity where the school provides the administrative process for collecting the funds. This charity would be registered with the Canada Revenue Agency.

    • Examples - Terry Fox Run, United Way.

  • Student activities and resources (including fees)

    • All money raised/received related to student activities and resources such as activity fees, support for student council/governments, events, resources or materials.

    • Examples: student activity fees, support for extracurricular activities, graduation funds, student clubs.

  • Capital asset fundraising

    • Costs of the purchase of capital assets.

    • Examples – purchase of playground equipment.

  • Fundraising for external charities

Broader public sector supply chain guideline

Broader Public Sector Supply Chain Guideline

  • The Ontario Ministry of Finance released the Broader Public Supply Chain (BPS) Guideline in April 2009.

    • School boards are required to implement a Supply Chain Code of Ethics and 25 Procurement Practices and Procedures by March 2010.  See http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/ontariobuys/documents/scg.html

  • As outlined in memorandum 2009: SB28 (http://tpfr.edu.gov.on.ca/SB_Memos_2009.htm) boards are to review the guideline and ensure its existing procurement Code of Ethics and Procurement Practices and Policies are compliant.  

  • The Ministry has added a Supply Chain Guideline compliance requirement to the master Transfer Payment Agreement that is used for all school boards' funding agreements. 

  • In addition, the Ministry is required to report on the compliance of school boards on the implementation of these requirements to the Ministry of Finance. As a result, an attestation will be included in the 2010-11 Estimates package.
