Fiscal Year-End Training AGENDA Welcome & Introductions Budget Research Procurement Accounting Accounts Payable Payroll
Office of Planning and Budget • Fiscal 2009 Year End • Work with Budget Administrators to make sure that departmental budgets do not fall into a deficit. • Fiscal 2010 New Year • Work with Budget Administrators and Sr. Management to develop unrestricted and restricted budgets for the new fiscal year.
What does NSF mean? • NSF is an acronym for “Non-Sufficient Funds”. • An account is in NSF when the YTD Activity plus the Encumbrances are greater than the Revised Budget, resulting in a negative remaining balance in General Expense. • Funding Transfer forms can be submitted to the Budget Office to correct NSF condition. • NSF can occur in Personnel Expenses budgets, as well as General Expenses budgets.
What does NSF cause? • A cost center that is in NSF causes a delay in processing of invoice/s • The invoice has to go through the following additional steps instead of being processed and a check generated for the invoice. • The data processor keys the invoice in only to have it rejected by the accounting system, then it goes to the batch editor. • The batch editor checks to make sure the cost center is in deficit. If it is deficit, the invoice is sent to the A/P Manager. • The A/P Manager places the rejected invoice in suspense. • Then, the A/P Manager emails the department and notifies the Budget Office of the NSF. • Budget contacts the department to fund the deficit. • Once the deficit has been funded, Budget notifies A/P that the suspended document can be processed. • A/P can then process the invoice and generate a check.
Personnel Expense Budget • May 29, 2009-Deadline for submitting personnel budget transfers to HRIS • When every position budget is funded, you do not run the risk of having a personnel deficit.
General Expense Budget • Last day to submit routine funding transfer forms is May 29, 2009 • Except to correct an NSF condition. • Drexel: send to Budget Office. • DUCOM: send to Dean’s Office for approval.
Pooled Budget • Drexel uses a pooled-budget method for checking availability of funds. • The Pooled Budget includes most account codes in General Expense. • Exceptions: • Drexel and DUCOM • 4251 – Rent Payment – Tenet • 7011 - Subcontract Expense < $25,0000 • 7012 - Subcontract Expense > $25,0000 • 8010 - Expense Recovery Internal Charges • 8011 - Expense Recovery External Charges • DUCOM only • 3421 – Insurance Premiums (DUCOM) • 3450 - 3459 – Medical Insurance Premiums • 4254 – DU/PHEC IC Charge-backs • 4255 – Dean’s Tax • 4262 – Departmental Overhead
How to avoid an NSF • Be pro-active in managing your account. • Clean up encumbrances. • Check the remaining balance in General Expense budget. • Watch out for: • Purchasing Card transactions • Service Department charges • Telrose/Office Depot charges • Etc.
Process for Solving NSF’s: Drexel • Budget Office will continue sending NSF notifications via email. • The e-mail will ask you to provide a source of funds to cover the deficit. • Unrestricted account under your control • Designated account, PI Overhead Share account, DeL program account, Restricted if appropriate
Process for Solving NSF’s: DREXEL • Please respond promptly to this e-mail! • Time is of the essence. NSF’s hold up the payment of invoices and put the year-end schedule at risk. • Beginning June 1, 2009, if we do not hear from you within two days, we will fund your deficit from the most reasonable source and send an e-mail telling you which account we have used.
Process for Solving NSF’s: DUCOM • If you think your account will fall into NSF, contact the Dean’s Office. • The Dean’s Office will work with you to find a way to cover your deficit.
Fiscal Year 2010 Beginning • Unrestricted Budgets • Designated, Restricted and Capital Budgets
Fiscal Year 2010 Budgets:Unrestricted • Unrestricted budgets are annual budgets which begin anew each fiscal year. • DREXEL: The FY2010 Board Approved Budgets will be posted into Web*Finance by June 15. • DUCOM: The FY2010 Board Approved Budgets will be posted by June 15 or after reconciled by the Dean’s Office.
FY2010 Budgets:Designated / Restricted • DREXEL: • Cost centers beginning with 13, 15, 17 and 3. • The balances in Designated and Restricted accounts roll-over from one fiscal year to the next. • Estimated Budgets posted by June 15, 2009 • DUCOM: • They are now treated like unrestricted budgets. Budgets are based on amount approved during the budget process.

What is an Estimated Budget? • Because we don’t know what the ending balance will be, we post an estimated budget into the account. • The estimated budget is 90% of the balance on May 31. • After fiscal year 2009 is officially closed: • We reverse the estimated balances. • We post the actual balances.

Research Accounting Fiscal 2009 Year-End Presentation
Office of Research Year-End Accounting Issues Stewardship responsibility for sponsored funds: Timely cost transfers Timely salary reallocations Cost transfers and salary reallocations for expenses occurring during FY09 should be processed in FY09. Review expenditures to ensure accurate accounting. Contact your Program Administrator if you have any questions.
Office of Research Year-End Accounting Issues Encumbrances All subcontractor encumbrances will be handled by your Program Administrator in the Office of Research. Please follow Comptroller’s Office guidelines for all other encumbrances. Review your encumbrances for accuracy, e.g., ensure that encumbrances are being reduced when invoices are paid. Contact your Program Administrator for assistance if your encumbrance seems to be overstated.
Office of Research Year-End Accounting Issues Personnel Action Form Processing – FY09 If the latest salary distribution is not entered in the Labor Screen of Web*Budget, all salary will revert back to the department as of July 1, 2009. Using your department’s latest distribution report, enter that information to ensure personnel charged to grants in FY09 will continue to be charged to grants in FY10.
Office of Research Year-End Accounting Issues Purchase Orders Purchase orders for sponsored project expenditures > $2,000 must first be sent to your Program Administrator in the Office of Research. If Purchase Orders are sent to Procurement without going through the Office of Research, they will be returned to you.
Office of Research Year-End Accounting Issues Establishing New Projects If there is no reason to set up a project that begins July 1 or later in the old fiscal year, the Office of Research will establish the project in the new year after July 1. This reduces the possibility of errors related to year-end processing.
