    12. 12. What if I have a Qualified or Negative Certification? <ul><li>Districts filing Qualified or Negative Certifications must submit 2 additional copies of all reports/narratives/assumptions-copies are sent to CDE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>BAS will work with district to determine level of COE involvement in securing a fiscal plan of action to address why the Qualified or Negative certification was necessary and has the option of invoking other actions (EC 42131(b), EC 42127.6(a)) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Third Interim reports are required of all districts which file Qualified or Negative 2 nd Interim certifications or were reclassified as Qualified or Negative by the COE (EC 42131(e)) </li></ul><ul><li>Third Interims are due on or before June 1, including projections to June 30 (EC 42128) </li></ul><ul><li>COEs are required to report to the State and District Governing Board, a summary of all actions taken in regards to Qualified or Negative Certifications at year end (AB 139). </li></ul>
    13. 13. How do I complete these forms? <ul><li>FORM AI ATTENDANCE DATA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Record ADA information from: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Column 1: Estimated P-2 Report ADA (Where you expect ADA to be at the P-2 reporting period) NEW CHANGE!!!! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Column A: Original Budget -Pulls in data automatically from Form A in Adopted Budget when import is done </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Column B: Board Approved Operating Budget (any adjustment made to ADA, if RL was adjusted due to State Budget Adoption or start of school) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Column C: Projected Year Totals (Declining districts: Use Prior Year P-2 ADA (PY Guarantee); All Other districts: Use Est.

    14. 14. Estimated Actual P2 ADA for Current Year Decline Districts: Use PY P-2 ADA; Others: Use CY P-2 ADA est.-see Column 1 Pulls in Data from Adopted Budget
    15. 15. Line 21a. Is for Resident Charter ADA for USD only-include in Form RL ADA line 5.b. Line 21b. Is for Resident/Non Resident Charter ADA for Elem/HS and Non Resident for USD Line 22 is for ALL Charter districts only who are funded thru RL (None in SB County). Don’t forget to include supplemental hourly programs-project based on Annual totals-should correspond to Form RL funding projected Don’t forget to include projected CDS additional hours-and transfer portion of RL in RS 2430 for UA Form DAY @ Yearend, along with regular RL ADA included in General Ed ADA lines above.
    16. 16. What about the RL Calculation? <ul><li>Form RLI is a summary of the target components used in calculating the district state aid or Revenue Limit. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Original Budget-Should pull in automatically from Form RL in Adopted budget after SACS2006 budget import. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Board Approved Operating Budget-Use data components that match your current RL projected amount in the Operating budget-If no changes made since Adopted, use same data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Projected Year Totals-Use data based on how you expect to end this fiscal year for the various components: ADA, UI, PERS Reduction, taxes, hourly programs, etc. </li></ul></ul>
    17. 17. What are those Data ID #? <ul><li>The state has available a RL calculation that ties into your automated Attendance report process </li></ul><ul><li>Revenue Software can be obtained at: http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/sf/rl/ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can import in the Attendance data file from the Attendance software to do own RL calc and pick up the key components for input into the Form RLI using the DATA ID#s. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Our office can also supply you with an updated RL calculation, just supply us with the pertinent data elements: ADA, UI, PERS Reduction, Supplemental Hours, Meals for Needy, etc. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contact Patty Trevino or Jesus Holguin in BAS 433-4630 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We have a data collection form that can be used </li></ul></ul>
    18. 18. REVENUE LIMIT DATA Key Areas
    19. 19. Why do I need to update the RL? <ul><li>The data elements you used at Adopted Budget were your best guestimates at that time, BUT now you have more real/actual data that may increase or decrease that estimate: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Salaries subject to PERS Reduction (check with payroll </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>for all funds) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>13.02% less 9.124%(Pers)=3.896% x 85%(15% buyout)=3.316% PERS reduction w/Buyout </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Meals for Needy (check with Food Services on monthly meal reimbursements filed) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unemployment Insurance adjustments (check your payrolls for all funds-remember rate went down this year) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>County ADA updates (also update on Form AI) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supplemental/Summer School hours-have actuals to date that can be projected out to end of FY (also update on Form A1) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be sure to continue to deficit Gr 2-6 Remedial/Low Star 22.66% </li></ul></ul></ul>
    20. 20. Total Revenue Limit ADA should balance to Form A, Line 7 – Line 8 Inflation Increase comes from State Cola % applied to state wide averages, not each district’s unique BRL. All data ties to State’s PASR software ID numbers not State Funding exhibit references! Meals for Needy is based on pupil participation pursuant to Monthly Meal Count reports (Form CNFS 71-5), obtain copies of monthly reports. Rate based on PY rate updated by COLA. Only applicable to approx 14 districts in our county. No new districts can apply. Equalization adjustment can be listed under Line 3 All Oth Adjs RL ADA comes from Form AI, lines 7-8+21.a.
    21. 21. Property Taxes should reflect most current J-29B Property Tax estimate from County Auditor and should equal objects 8021-8089 in budget Charter School In Lieu Taxes should match object code 7280 Hourly programs should be updated to reflect hrs on Form AI. Several programs are lumped together for reporting purposes . Total should equal amount imported for object 8011 in Form 01I for all report periods listed above. UI should match total UI budgeted in all funds less historic base for your district-if negative, use zero Pers reduction should include PERS buyback adjustment Line 33 Old Sch D, Gr K-12 cap Line 34 Old Sch P, Gr 7-12 uncap Line 35 Old Sch J *Gr 2-6 cap(deficit), 2-9 uncap Don’t forget to include any RDA taxes that are applicable to RL (Generally 43.9% Object 8047)
    22. 22. Which Fund Forms do I complete? <ul><li>All districts are required to complete the Fund 01I form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unrestricted/Restricted and Combined must be submitted </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Districts should also review the Other District Funds and submit applicable Fund Forms with Interim Submission </li></ul><ul><ul><li>These fund forms are now brought into the SACS2006ALL software as part of the extract process and can easily be sent to us as part of the package </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be sure to review these Other Fund forms, however, to ensure all ending fund balances are POSITIVE . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>At Adopted budget, sometimes these Other funds are overstated on the beginning balances and when the Asset and Liability Roll is done with UAs, it creates a negative ending balance in the CY Operating Budget that needs to be adjusted. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    23. 23. How do I get the fund data into the software? <ul><li>Information is imported into SACS2006ALL software through a file extraction process on the FIN or MIS financial systems. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SRININ application sets up data to be extracted </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>1 st Interim parameters 07/01/2006-10/31/2006 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2 nd Interim parameters 07/01/2006-01/31/2007 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If this extract is run after 10/31/06 or the 1/31/07 cutoff, all “pended” and recently posted budget transfers (BTs) will appear in Column D of Fund 01I which is correct </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Please DO NOT use other parameter dates after these end dates. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If you need something posted prior to these cutoff dates-GET the batches into our office a minimum of 3 days prior to the cutoff date . Your JET mail doesn’t always get to our office the same day you send it out, especially if your pick up is late in the day </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>DO NOT expect to FAX batches to our office. We do NOT accept faxes for budget or journal transactions. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    24. 24. Range for 2 nd Interim: From date: 07012006 To date: 01312007 Use YOUR district’s CDS # Don’t use more than 1 fund number to include or exclude. Mainly used to exclude Fund 09 for districts sponsoring charters
    25. 25. What do all these columns mean? <ul><li>Fund Forms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Column A-Original Budget (Adopted, 7/1) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Column B-Board Approved Operating Budget (Current working budget as of 10/31 which may include adjustments for UA carryovers and final State Adopted Budget revisions) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Column C-Actuals to Date (current revenues and expenditures actually received/expended as of 10/31) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Column D-Projected Year Totals (District’s projection of updated revenues/expenditures based on ADA changes from Adopted Budget; updated staffing ratios; updated supply ratios; new categorical funding or carryovers; deleted program funding, etc.-District needs assumptions to substantiate adjustments being made) </li></ul></ul>
    26. 26. Board approved Revision/ State Budget 45 day adj Actual Activity As of 10/31/06 Projected to 6/30/07 Adopted Budget as of 7/1
    27. 27. How do I know what to Project? <ul><li>Projected Year Totals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Districts should carefully review all resources/all funds to ensure expenditures are supported by current state/federal/local revenues, appropriations or carryovers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Districts should review staffing at school sites to ensure CSR coverage based on current ADA projections and salary adjustments to reflect actual staffing to date in previously vacant positions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Any new construction or grants requiring district matching funds should be reviewed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Debt should be carefully reviewed to ensure district has budgeted appropriately based on CY debt schedules. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review actual activity to date to ensure expenditures are sufficiently budgeted in utilities and other services (I.e. Selpa expenditures-Xpot, Facilities, etc. as applicable) </li></ul></ul>
    28. 28. The Money is in the Details.. <ul><li>Beginning Fund Balance, Line F.1.a. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Column A must reflect the district’s estimated beginning fund balance from the Adopted Budget. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Column B must reflect the district’s estimated beginning fund balance PLUS any increases or decreases from the Unaudited Actuals ending balances roll into the current fiscal year. Object 9792 and Object 9791 combined. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For 2 nd Interim, Audit Adjustments should be posted and reflected in line F.1b. Object 9793 and Restatements in Object 9795. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get your BT batches into our office prior to January 31, 2007 to establish these audit adjustments EARLY! </li></ul></ul></ul>
    29. 29. Suggestion: Keep Restricted Categorical EFB in Legally Restricted 9740 Object or 9780, not 9790 for board presentation purposes 9770 + 9790 Unrestricted ONLY MUST equal State Minimum Reserves % of total expenditures + Uses + Transfers Out RECOMMENDATION=Put State % in 9770 and keep updated as all expenditures are increased Reserves for Revolving Cash, Stores and PE must equal current Asset balances (keep these Reserves Updated to match asset at reporting periods)
    30. 30. TIME FOR A BREAK?
    31. 31. I have Cash, why do I need to do a Cash Flow? <ul><li>Or the old comment, I have checks in my checkbook so I must have Money! But is it sufficient………or even true?? </li></ul><ul><li>Determines whether or not the District MAY need to borrow funds during the current fiscal year only through: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>TRANS (Tax Revenue Anticipation Note) Generally outside financing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CA (Constitutional Advance) Borrowing from San Bernardino County Supervisors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other District Funds (Temporary only and other restrictions apply) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Projections for remaining months are used to assist a district in determining months when cash balances may be lower and expenditures may need to be scheduled to be paid in later time frames, if possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Projections assist the district in scheduling debt repayment schedules for peak revenue periods (tax distributions-Late December-Late April). </li></ul><ul><li>Aids district in determining whether categorical funding is being received timely, or if Unrestricted General Fund is fronting revenues, reducing potential interest earnings. </li></ul><ul><li>NO CASH = NO VENDOR WARRANTS WILL BE SENT TO DISTRICT </li></ul>
    32. 32. Okay, so What does a Cash Flow need to include? <ul><li>Districts may use the Form CASH or submit an equivalent spreadsheet that contains ALL the same data elements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Beginning Cash (ensure July matches to ending June 06) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Monthly Cash balances </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Major Revenue/Sources and Expenditures/Uses lines </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prior Year Accruals/Monthly activity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Current Year Estimated Accruals column (used to reconcile Cash activity back to Projected Budget, if not actually received or expended, generally would be accrued at yearend) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Actual activity through Interim reporting period reconciled back to Financial ledgers </li></ul></ul>
    33. 33. What can I use to assist me? <ul><li>Review prior year actual cash distributions to determine historic percentages of tax distributions per month or state aid distributions in relation to total revenues received. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If you finished off your Cash flow for last year you can determine % per month that can be used in CY </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Check for current year cash distribution estimates (generally posted on CDE website) </li></ul></ul>
    34. 34. Other Form CASH suggestions <ul><li>Project expenditures for remaining months based on actual planned distributions. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Talk to your Accts Payable Dept </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Review debt schedules for payment cycles. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Review maintenance contracts for annual payment cycles-negotiate with vendor if payment hits at low cash cycle </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Talk to your Payroll Dept </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Review payroll for whether H/W premiums are paid monthly or quarterly. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Review payroll for when stipends are paid out, year end or periodically throughout the year. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Talk to your Program/Categorical/Technical Staff </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Find out about large purchases of Equipment/Textbooks and work together to schedule an optimal time when cash is high </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Find out when conferences are scheduled that may involve large purchases/travel costs </li></ul></ul></ul>
    35. 35. How do I figure out the Accrual Column? <ul><li>Use accrual column to ensure district has adjusted cash for known state funding deferrals. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>June state aid payment received in July </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2006 payment in CY July under Receivables line (if z’d out E/R) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2007 payment should be reflected in RL line, Accrual column </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Use accrual column to record final June salary/benefits paid out in July and accrued automatically. </li></ul><ul><li>Review CY accruals to determine % of revenues not generally received historically during the year, but earned </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Generally you won’t worry about Deferred Revenues for CY as budget is anticipating full cash receipts. Deferred Revenues don’t reduce cash, it just is an accounting entry to change to the next FY. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review CY payables to determine % of expenditures not generally paid out historically during the year, record in accrual column to balance back to projected budget if anticipating categorical expenses to match revenues. </li></ul></ul>
    36. 36. Must reconcile with FCR 290 Object 9110 as of month end for each month 1 st =through Oct 2 nd = through Jan 7/ 1 Beginning Cash-9110 in out SACS2006ALL
    37. 37. Reconcile to Proj Yr Budget June state aid deferral Final Ending Cash-9110 TRANS/CA are Other Receipts Suspense Acct balances are Other/Non-Expend Anticipated 2007 Accruals These are 2006 Accruals in 9XXX objects 2006-07 SACS2006ALL
    38. 38. What about the Future? <ul><li>Districts are required to submit multiyear (current and two subsequent fiscal years) projections for their General Fund. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Which have been reviewed by the District Governing Board as part of the Interim Certification process. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The FORM MYPI must be submitted in Unrestricted, Restricted and Combined formats per state instruction manual. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We are now REQUIRING that if you do not use the state MYPI form, your spreadsheet has this breakdown, along with a detail of the RL calculation and ADA/Enrollment used </li></ul></ul>
    39. 39. What do I need to know about MYPs? <ul><li>The most meaningful MYP is one that : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Includes PY Unaudited Actuals & CY agreeing with financial system as starting/reference point for future year comparisons </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Includes % difference columns between fiscal years </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Includes detailed assumptions regarding projections </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is constantly shared with Board, cabinet & unions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Meets ongoing fiscal needs!!! </li></ul></ul>
    40. 40. What are some tips for MYPs? <ul><li>Revenue Limit components, including ADA are to be input on the Unrestricted report. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Have supporting backup calculations for your revenue limit components, don’t just apply the state COLA to the current year calculations as several components don’t receive COLA adjs (Meals for Needy, UI, PERS Reduction, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Break down ADA for District, County, Charter components, any changes to Hourly programs in future years </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Restricted Revenue Limit transfer to Special Education should be reflected on the Restricted MYP I on line A.1.f. as a positive amount and on line A.1.f. of the Unrestricted MYP I as a negative amount. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This also applies to Community Day School transfers to RS 2430 </li></ul></ul></ul>
    41. 41. What else should I look for? <ul><li>Unrestricted fund contributions to Restricted categorical programs (Objects 8980) should be reflected on line A.5. As a negative on the Unrestricted Form and a positive on the Restricted form, with a combined total of zero on the Combined form (for example: Transportation encroachment, Special Ed encroachment, etc.) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NOTE: If you find a total exists on the combined form, review the separate Restricted/Unrestricted pages to ensure you have input correct data </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If ADA increases, we expect to see CE salaries increasing, including Benefit costs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If changing class sizes, indicate in narrative or assumptions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Or if changing CSR options. Indicate in narrative or assumptions </li></ul></ul>
    42. 42. If ADA increasing, Growth in CE salaries should be equivalent This is where your contributions to Restricted programs would be input as negative amts in Unrestricted, positive in Restricted, Combined = ZERO Step/col, Growth positions should be noted in future years consistent with ADA projections RL trf to CDS or SE, negative in Unrestricted , positive in Restricted
    43. 43. Don’t forget to include step/column for categorical positions These areas need to offset to Unrestricted forms. Check often as revisions are made to balance
    44. 44. MUST RECONCILE TO REVENUE LIMIT TOTAL CALCULATIONS FOR ALL YEARS! Provide copies of detailed calculations Contributions should net to ZERO
    45. 45. FORM MYP I EFB Components <ul><li>District must manually complete page 2 of the Unrestricted MYP I which lists the Available Reserves (Must also include components if using district spreadsheet): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Object 9770 Designated for Economic Uncertainties=State Reserve % </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Object 9790 Unappropriated Reserves </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Both of these reserves must be POSITIVE! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>On the Restricted MYP I </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ENDING FUND BALANCE MUST BE EITHER ZERO OR POSITIVE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If you encounter a negative ending balance in the subsequent fiscal years, the district must make a decision to reduce expenditures OR increase contributions from Unrestricted GF to cover additional anticipated encroachment. DO NOT LEAVE AS A NEGATIVE ENDING FUND BALANCE! </li></ul></ul></ul>
    46. 46. Ending Fund balances must be POSITIVE for both Restricted & Unrestricted Forms!! Reserves input here, pull into available reserves Assumptions can be listed here or in Board Narrative or on our COE assumptions Form
    47. 47. What other areas do I need to review on MYPI? <ul><li>On the Combined MYP I, there is an additional Recommended RESERVES section F . (page 2) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NEW: Special Ed pass through exclusion for districts serving as AU of Selpa </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Need to Input District ADA on line F.2. which populates into the C&S 3.B. Column 1 Est. P-2 ADA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This then triggers the State Reserve % required on lines #3.d.-g. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This is also how the two Subsequent FY data gets into the C&S </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review carefully line F.3 h., if NO, district is not meeting the minimum State reserve levels and needs to indicate a Qualified or possibly Negative certification and provide our office with a fiscal plan to bring back Positive! </li></ul></ul>
    48. 48. WARNING On MYPI <ul><li>NOTE: If you just open and save MYPI, it thinks you have completed the form and will lock out the manual entry in the C&S 3.B. Column 1 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If you are using your own spreadsheet that mimics the MYPI data, you may need to open Form MYPI and input F.2. District ADA data for subsequent two fiscal years </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This ADA is the CY District ADA plus Charter ADA (Resident and Non-Resident listed on Line 22 of Form AI) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Please review MYPI, as this may become a REQUIRED form for MYP in future software due to the links CDE is making between this form and the C&S . </li></ul>
    49. 49. Requires Manual Input of ADA. This pulls into C&S 3.B. Column 1 If NO, provide a Fiscal Recovery Plan document showing how district will increase Reserves in CY and 2 SFYs
    50. 50. FORM MYP (Alternative) <ul><li>Districts can use another form of MYP spreadsheet ONLY IF all elements are included: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ADA used for Revenue limit calculations-all 3 yrs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Detail of Revenue limit components (can be on a separate spreadsheet linked to MYP)-all 3 yrs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Revenues/Sources and Expenditures/Uses by Major object classification-all 3 yrs.

    52. 52. What Factors went into your MYP? <ul><li>Districts must provide our office with a listing of Assumptions used in the Projected Year Totals and the MYP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Attachment B-1 is provided as a tool </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>District can use other formats as long as all pertinent data from Attachment B-1 is included </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>COLA projected % for revenues </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Salary Step/Column increases or Projected Staffing Changes </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Benefit Cap Increases or if not capped, projected increases </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>One time and Ongoing increases in Supplies, Services and Equipment-Can also explain in C&S if over state variance. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Additional or increased Debt Payments-if not listed in C&S Multiyear commitments section </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Send us all board narratives, it helps us understand better what your plan of action is. </li></ul></ul>Ring, Ring, Hi, it’s County Schools!
    53. 53. How do I know if I have covered everything? <ul><li>Handout has some questions you should be able to answer after completing Interim Report and MYP </li></ul>
    54. 54. What is a TRC and what do I do with it? <ul><li>Technical Review Checklists = TRC </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Run for Operating, Projected, Actuals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This will assist you in finding any SACS coding problems to fix prior to YEAR END. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fully explain any warning exceptions and FIX any Fatal errors PRIOR TO submitting to our office. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>All WARNING errors that CAN be corrected, MUST be corrected and not just explained. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Pretty much the only WARNING error that can be explained are negative entries resulting from prior year accrual adjustments, all other must be fixed. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Run the TRC before taking the reports to your governing Board in the event you have to make a correction that will affect the outcome of the reports by object code. </li></ul></ul>
    55. 55. What if I already fixed an error? <ul><li>In the event, the correction was made after the interim date cutoffs of 10/31 or 1/31 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Please note in your explanation, the date and batch number of the correction fixing the error. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If a fatal error and cannot put in electronic explanation-just write on printed TRC sent to us,the above information. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Do not change date of SACS extract to pick up the corrected batch-this will distort other information we have to validate from the financial system for data integrity. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Remember that the codes listed in the TRC are SACS rollup codes and may not be the same codes as in the Financial system (ie. RS codes for Fund 30/35 sub funds roll up to 1 RS code in SACS) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Call us if you are having a lot of trouble finding what is causing the TRC error. </li></ul></ul>
    56. 56. Run TRC for Board Approved, Projected & Actuals to Date only (print all and send with other funds/supplementals/C&S)
    57. 57. This section is where you will scroll down to find unexplained TRC errors that need explanations.
    58. 58. More TRCs were added.. <ul><li>CDE has upgraded the technical checks to include some that were not included in prior releases. So review carefully. </li></ul><ul><li>New Fatals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>C&S explanations for all “Not met” and Supplemental info item “Yes” responses & “Yes/No” responses for Fiscal indicators </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be COMPLETE </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>New WARNINGS: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Object 8998 only with specified resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Object 8995 balances to zero by fund </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fund 67 Excess Designations (if designations higher than EFB) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Warnings changed to Fatals: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Goal x Function </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PY EFB = CY BFB Restricted & Charters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Special Ed Goal </li></ul></ul><ul><li>FULL LISTING INCLUDED IN HANDOUT MATERIALS </li></ul>
    59. 59.

    60. 60. ARE YOU READY TO ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE
    61. 61. LUNCH BREAK The Afternoon Session is geared to looking at the Cash Flow and MYP in more detail & reviewing your own unique district formats. Thank YOU!! If you are not returning, please leave completed evaluations by the back door.
    62. 62. Can you show me exactly how to do a Cash Flow? How? What? Why? When?
    63. 63. Let’s Start with……Why? <ul><li>Here are some reasons why a cash flow is important: It… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Summarizes monthly cash receipts and disbursement activities which can be used as a planning tool in making payments to vendors and investments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identifies the timeliness of receipts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identifies monthly cash needs and the possibility of the need to apply for temporary loans </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can assist in monitoring cash solvency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is an Indicator of strong fiscal management practices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is a Good follow-up tool to track receipt and payment of prior year accruals </li></ul></ul>
    64. 64. I have a Budget, why track CASH? <ul><li>Major Differences: Budget vs Cash Flow </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Accruals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The Budget is developed based on the modified basis of accounting. This method combines the cash basis of accounting with the accrual basis. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A cash flow is a projection of actual cash activity. It does not incorporate accruals, so they must be excluded in the monthly projections, except for the collection of and payment of prior year accruals. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>However a reconciliation between cash and budget is a good tool to use to ensure your budget really is on track with actual spending patterns. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    65. 65. OK, I did it. Now What? <ul><li>Revision/Monitoring </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Like the budget, a good cash flow needs to be monitored and revised as new information is received and actual activity is recorded. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitoring the estimated cash flow is also a good indicator of a delay in receipt of state or federal funds that can be followed up on by staff. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Emphasis needs to be given to the major revenues and expenditures and timing of the receipts/payments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t spend a lot of time on the small projections </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Thought should be given to the payment schedules for stipends; 10, 11 and 12 month salary contracts; peak sub usage; health benefit payments; construction projects </li></ul></ul></ul>
    66. 66. HOW do I begin and WHEN do I start? <ul><li>July 1, Beginning Balance per County audited records </li></ul><ul><li>Actuals to date through Interim Reporting Periods (Oct 31 and Jan 31) </li></ul><ul><li>Reconciliation done monthly back to General Ledger/Financial Reports-Object 9110 </li></ul><ul><li>Projections for future months based on projected activity-not just equal installments of projected budget </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You don’t spend the budget equally each month, except perhaps salary and benefits to some degree </li></ul></ul>
    67. 67.
