glossary of terms
Glossary of Terms
  • Fund Balance: The cumulative year-end balance of various departmental accounts including state roll-forward, DRIF, revolving accounts. It does not include gift funds held in the Foundations.
  • Soft Money: Funds received on a one time basis with no commitment of future allocation. DRIF, Summer/Winter and entrepreneurial revenues are considered soft money.
  • Hard Money: State allocated funds that are considered to be guaranteed year to year; COLA, MERIT and Fringe Benefits are allocated for hard money accounts.
  • FTE/Lines: “Full Time Equivalent” – a budgetary device that assigns fringe benefits from the campus Fringe Benefit Pool to a particular position. Only available in hard (state) budgets.
  • DRIF: A formulaic distribution of the F&A (overhead) produced by a program’s sponsored research activity. To be used for research related activity.

Glossary of Terms (cont’d.)
  • Revolving Account: An account into which soft money is transferred; the balance at the end of the fiscal year typically rolls forward. Summer/Winter term accounts, DRIF accounts are considered revolving.
  • Plant Funds: A central account, tied to the program, where programs transfer or “save” funds for future construction and renovation project. A prudent way to manage fund balances.
  • Restricted Funds: Funds received for which there is a proscribed purpose such as sponsored research grants and contracts and gifts for which the donor provided explicit directions. Administrators are responsible for assuring the funds are spent appropriately.
  • Interest Income: Annual income generated by endowments, which are always held in one of the foundations. Income is typically slightly less than 5% of the endowment value. It is used to reimburse program for costs incurred by the endowed chair or related activity.

Glossary of Terms (cont’d.)
  • Underwater Accounts: Gift accounts held in the foundations, the value of which is less than the original gift, due to poor performance by the investment portfolio. Accounts are often frozen until the original value is restored.
  • KUALI: A national consortium of universities to develop open source software which will support universities in perpetuity without the cost of commercial products or licenses. UM has been a member since 2007. We expect to replace our current financial system (FRS) with KUALI Financial in January; KUALI Student Services is under development.
