Current Budget Information


Monthly budget reports, which are hand mailed to Budget Managers, give totals and detail of each transaction that occurred in a month.  Screens BU09 and PU01, accessible on the mainframe computer system, provide current totals.  Screen BU07 provides current totals and detail information.  Instructions to use these screens follow.

SCREEN BU09

    Current budget information can be accessed by using screen BU09 on the mainframe computer system.  Enter the number of the option and the budget number.  Do not enter an object code.  Press enter.  A list is provided with information for each object code that exists within the budget entered.  The following is a description of the information provided:

  1. Budgeted - The original amount budgeted for the object code plus any increases made and minus any decreases.
  2. Expended - Total amount of payments made (money spent) from the object code.
  3. Encumbered - The total amount of current unpaid (outstanding) purchase orders for the object code.
  4. Balance - The amount of money currently available for the object code.  The amount is not encumbered and has not been spent.
  5. %xp - The percentage of the budgeted amount which is currently available for the object code.
NOTE:    The balance for object code 502 is the budgeted less encumbered.  It does not consider amounts expended for part-time salaries.  The encumbered amount is the total of all contracts keyed into PT01 for the account.

  Screen BU09 is updated each business night.  For example, if payment of a purchase order is made on Thursday, the payment will appear in the expended column of BU09 on Friday.

    The Budget Display screen is an inquiry only screen.  The budget can not be changed from this screen.  To change budget information, a budget revision form is completed, signed by the Budget Manager, and sent to the Director of Financial Services to be processed.

SCREEN PU01

    Current budget information can be also be accessed by using screen PU01 on the mainframe computer system.  Access option 3 and enter the budget number.  If an object code is entered, information for that object code is provided.  If an object code is not entered, a list is provided with information for each object code that exists within the budget entered.

    At the top of the screen is displayed the budget number, the Budget Manager's name, the department/division name, the dates of the budget and the percentage of budget that can be spent.  Also provided is the following:

  1. Budgeted - The original amount budgeted for the object code plus any increases made and minus and decreases.
  2. Expended - Total amount of payments made (money spent) from the object code.
  3. Encumbered - The total amount of current unpaid (outstanding) purchase orders for the object code.
  4. Balance - The amount of money currently available for the object code.  The amount is not encumbered and has not been spent.  Except for object code 502.
  5. %xp - The percentage of the budgeted amount which is currently available for the object code.
NOTE:    The balance for object code 502 is the budgeted less encumbered.  It does not consider amounts expended for part-time salaries.  The encumbered amount is the total of all contracts keyed into PT01 for the account.

  Screen PU01 is updated as transactions are entered in the computer system.  For example, if payment of a purchase order is entered on the accounts payable computer system on Monday at 10:00 a.m., the amount is removed from the encumberance column and the amount is added to the expended column.

    The Budget Display screen is an inquiry only screen.  The budget can not be changed from this screen.  To change budget information, a budget revision form is completed, signed by the Budget Manager, and sent to the Director of Financial Services to be processed.

SCREEN BU07

    Screen BU07 provides detail budget information such as creation of the budget, revisions, purchase orders created, payments made, etc.  When screen BU07 is accessed on the mainframe computer system, the following screen appears:
