  9. Budget Process/Guidelines

  10. Steps for Budget Managers 1) Budget Adjustments - Complete by February 3rd, 2012 • Review Position budgets & make necessary adjustments • Review remaining accounts & make necessary adjustments • All Budget Adjustments (BUDAs) MUST balance to zero 2)Enter Strategic Investment Fund (SIFR) requests 3) Complete Strategic Investment Fund Proposal form – Submit by February 10th, 2012

  11. Position Budgets • Review position budgets for Faculty, WLUSA, MGMT, EXEMPT • Verify existing employee positions • Add missing employee positions • Reverse incorrect employee positions • Note: Balance in unallocated salary account (630999) cannot • be negative 11

  12. Position Budgets • WLUFA • Reference Salary (11/12) • LTA's base amounts remain in faculty and non-base in VPA; LTAs that are expiring will not receive an increase • WLUSA & Managers • Reference Salary less 2/12 of most recent increase • Phase 3Adjustments • Non-Position based wages accounts will be adjusted based on contracts and/or rates agreed upon by Senior Management • Known employee contract increases will be added to positions • Increases that are only projections will be estimated and not added to the positions until contracts are finalized (set up in contingency) • Benefits will be estimated and adjusted 12

  13. Position Reports The Banner Report (PWRPOSN) is available which provides a list of current positions and reference salary in payroll Reference salary current rate Budgeted Salary in Phase 1 is cost for last fiscal year (May 1, 2011 to April 30, 2012) (See next slide on “How to run “PWRPOSN” in Banner) Millennium’s Financial Reporting module has useful “Current Year – Budget by Position” report option NOTE: These 2 reports should be compared to ensure your positions are budgeted accurately for 2012/13

  16. Other Salary Issues Special Voluntary Exit Plan (SVEP) Faculty are charged to their existing department Other staff are budgeted centrally by Finance Phased in Retirement Option (PIRO) Faculties will hold the usual salary over the 3 years and have to cope with the time-variant nature of the actual payments Benefit expenses for early retirees remains in the faculty budget until the member reaches age 65, at which time they are move to the general retiree account. Other staff are budgeted centrally by Finance

  17. Other Salary Issues Faculty Positions Upon Retirement Full salary will be allocated back to VP budget Starting salary of replacement will be allocated back to the faculty (at VPA’s discretion) Resignations Full salary will remain in the faculty budget to allow department to hire at same level (at VPA’s discretion)

  18. Budget Adjustments (BUDAs) What is a BUDA? • A BUDA moves budget funds from one budget line to another (ex. Office supplies to Training) • Funds may be moved between salary and non-salary accounts • BUDAs can be used for anticipated changes in in projected activity for the next budget year • BUDA entries MUST balance to zero!

  19. BUDA Example #1Expense Accounts only • Student wage expense requires an additional $5k of funding (inadequate funds currently exist) • Move $5k from office supplies (as less is required for this expense item BUDA Adjustment: +$5,000 student wage, -$5,000 office supplies = $0 • An increase in expense must be offset by another account item to ensure overall budget amount remains the same

  20. BUDA Example #2Expense & Revenue Accounts Student wage expense requires an additional $5k of funding (inadequate funds currently exist) Increase budgeted revenue from application fees by $5k (based on expectations in 2012/13) BUDA Adjustment: + $5k to application revenue, + $5k to student wage expense = $0 Positive number in both cases 2014-10-26 20

  21. Target Categories • Notes: • Contact Gary Lambert on all fee rate changes and new fees to ensure they are included in the board approval package • SIF submissions in Millennium must reconcile with requested amounts on SIF application forms 21
