32 Expenditure Reallocations

33 Reallocations are sometimes necessary to correct data entry errors found after reviewing monthly account summaries. 33

34 Two types of reallocations: (examples in your handouts) Accounting weblink to Expenditure reallocation form: Payroll weblink to the reallocation form: 34

35 Reallocation after 90 Days Expenditure reallocations to sponsored projects after 90 days of the original charge are generally unallowable. OMB Circular A-133, Federal guidelines for auditors specifically directs auditors to target: “projects that are complete or in the later stages of completion. Frequent, untimely, and poorly documented reallocations can be an indicator of poor internal control”. 35

36 Reallocations necessary and exceptions to 90 day requirement: Official paperwork for an award is delayed (could request an advance-Handouts): programs/pdf/advance2.pdf programs/pdf/advance2.pdf Charging another sponsored project while waiting for another to be awarded. A semester effort certification is received and there is a problem with the % effort. It is determined that an unallowable expense is charged to the project. When reallocating to another index under the same award. 36

37 Miscellaneous: Justification should always include: Why the expense was not originally charged to the correct project. How the expenditure relates/benefits the project being charged. Other to the sponsors and auditors: Reallocations charging one sponsor project to clear a deficit in another. Reallocations at the end of the project to spend the remaining balance. 37
