PMBR

  • Report use frequency - monthly

  • It is important to note that the payroll encumbrances are through UVM’s fiscal year-end (June 30) only, which typically does not match the award end date.

    • Payroll expenses should be projected through the award end date

  • This report captures only those transactions that have been posted to the General ledger (GL).

    • Any transaction that has been budget checked but not posted will not be reflected here.

  • GCA prepares interim financial reports and invoices based on actuals posted to the GL at the end of a specific accounting period

    • PMBR will reconcile to these reports and invoices
