Fiscal Year End Budget Balancing for…

All OSU Education and General (E&G) Funds (000000 – 019999): 

Departmental expenditure budget “clean-up” entries (except for account 10994) may be made at the option of the budget manager of each College or Administrative unit.  Complete and approve all period 12 journal entries for budget redistributions (1xGF, 1xGP and 1xAS rule codes) by noon, Monday, July 10.

Budget adjustments for over-/under-realized revenue are not required but are available upon request. Those wishing to make a request should do so by 5:00 p.m., Thursday, July 6.  These may be communicated either via a signed “Request for Budget Change” form or by sending a detailed e-mail request to Karen Meador or Cindy Alexis.

After the books are adjusted and closed, the Office of Budget and Fiscal Planning will determine FY2017 ending E&G balances. Both positive and negative FY2017 balances will carry forward in their respective funds and will post as budget authority in FY2018.  Prior to posting, Business Centers will have the opportunity via worksheet to make balance redistributions within fund.  The worksheet will include ending balance calculation detail by fund and index, with the option to add activity and account code detail as needed. 

Designated Op, Svc Dept and Auxiliary Funds (050000 – 199999):

FY2017 Fund Balances will automatically carry forward within their respective funds but will not automatically post as FY2018 budget authority.  Estimated fund balances should be included and considered as available resources during the initial budget process for this fund range.

E&G Graduate Assistant Tuition Remissions (account 1095x):

The FY2017 initial E&G budget for each College included the entire allocation in support of academic year Graduate Tuition and Fee Remission.  The funding policy for academic year remissions covers Fund 001100 and the College Special Project Funds (001224, 001231, 001241, 001251, 001262, 001271, 001301, 001321 & 001331). Colleges may opt to distribute available resources beyond this group of funds, but it should be noted that future allocations could be impacted if there is significant variance from expected outcomes.

Units are responsible for Summer Term; for Ecampus (per the GCE agreement counting Ecampus SCH toward the graduate remission enrollment requirement); and for Cost Share (fund 005xxx) graduate remissions.**  Colleges and their respective Business Centers are responsible for distributing remission budget allocations by department and activity. 

**The only exception to the above for Cost Share is for the program to subsidize partial remissions for grant-funded doctoral graduate assistants who have been advanced to candidacy.  Costs for this program post centrally to ZARR51-10954.

E&G Graduate Assistant Health Insurance Subsidies (account 10994):

Graduate Health Insurance costs post monthly and are funded approximately quarterly by budget change from central resources.  Final adjustments to align budget with the actual annual (academic year as well as summer) cost for subsidized funds (001100, 001224, 001231,001241, 001251, 001262, 001271, 001301, 001321 & 001331) will post prior to the close of the fiscal year.  Funds which are not specifically mentioned as eligible for subsidy must bear the cost of graduate health insurance associated with graduate compensation.
