18  New Items: o Updated Budget Information Edit to perform as follows: o Updated Budget Information Edit to perform as follows: o Added new Budget Information Edit to perform as follows: 18 There are expenditures in Program 45 or Program 46, but district does not have Skills Center. Amount 1 = Mask 45XXX or Mask 46XXX Applies to any district other than those listed in edit Valid in F- 195 and F- 200 There are expenditures in Program 45 or Program 46, but district does not have Skills Center. Amount 1 = Mask 45XXX or Mask 46XXX Applies to any district other than those listed in edit Valid in F- 195 and F- 200 On page DS1, Column 3, Line B, Total Expenditures are greater than zero. District should show outstanding bonds on page DS4. Amount 1 = Item No. 532 (if greater than zero) Amount 2 = Item No. 585 (if zero) Valid in F- 195

19  Budgeted Beginning Fund Balance Review: o OSPI will review each school district’s budgeted beginning fund balance once the F-196 information is received. o The budgeted ending fund balance will be recalculated based upon the actual ending fund balance from the F-196. o If the result is a negative fund balance, your school district can expect a request from OSPI to revise its budget. o Your school board will have 30 days of receiving notice to submit a revised budget to OSPI. 19

20  Budgeting Receivables: o If your school district is unable to submit a budget extension (or budget for that matter) when revenues and fund balance do not exceed expenditures, it must request in writing to include receivables, collectible in future periods, to balance the budget or budget extension. o When a school district budgets receivables, OSPI places it under binding conditions which is intended to have it recover from its deficit budget situation and move to a stable financial position. o This usually places your ESD in an oversight position of your school district’s financial operations. 20

21  Budget Extension Reminders: o We know all of you are busy preparing your new year budgets, but don't forget any remaining current year budget extensions. August is the final month to file your F-200 budget extensions with OSPI. Depending on when you submitted your current year F-200 for approval and when you printed your new year F-195 budget document, you may need to reprint your new year budget to allow your current year budget extension to be accurately displayed in the middle column of your new year F

22  Budget Extension Reminders: o Review budget monthly to determine necessity of an extension. Must complete a budget extension prior to incurring expenditures in excess of the total appropriations as required by RCW 28A For 1 st class school districts, adopted and filed prior to incurring expenditures that exceed the appropriation in each fund. For 2 nd class school districts, adopted and approved by both the ESD and OSPI prior to incurring expenditures that exceed the appropriation in each fund. The ESD and OSPI will adjust budget extensions that do not meet this requirement. WAC requires that the Associated Student Body initially review revisions to the Associated Student Body (ASB) budget. Therefore, an extension of the ASB Fund budget should occur prior to the closing of school to secure the necessary student involvement. 22

23  Cash File Reminders: o F-197 application in EDS is available to school districts for (recommended) monthly reconciliation to your county treasurers’ report. o F-197 Reconciliation Excel template is in Chapter 5 of the Administrative, Budgeting, and Financial Reporting (ABFR) Handbook. o Amended WAC is effective May 6, The rationale behind replacing the phrase “ending net cash and investments, revenues and expenditures” with the more generalized word “amounts” is that the proposed language allows districts to reconcile in a more appropriate way and makes sure that there is agreement between the county treasurers’ records and the school districts’ records. 23

38  As stated in the Addendum to Bulletin No , dated January 12, 2012, Attachment B, districts that coded staff under duty code suffix “4,” for the purposes of recording the costs of innovative activities included in supplemental contracts, will submit a brief description of these innovative activities with the district’s F-196.  On The Data Requirements for Supplemental Reports, item D requires an entry. Although there has not been any “cost of living” increases for several years, under RCW 28A districts must certify either “yes” or “no” that it has spent funds provided for cost-of-living increases on salaries and salary-related benefits.  Districts that receive the Medicaid reimbursement should use Revenue code 6321 because the Medicaid reimbursement is coming from DSHS, not OSPI. 38

39  There are no changes to the manually entered distorting items such as election expenses, flow-through grants, alterations/renovations, and fines/penalties. This data is used in the Federal Restricted and Unrestricted Indirect Rate. 39

40 40  There are no changes to the manually entered Indirect Expenditures. The district should enter audit costs, legal costs, public relations expenditures, termination leave for federally supported staff, information system expenditures, pupil management and safety costs, and space and occupancy costs, if a cost plan has been established.  Remember that legal costs are very restrictive. Only enter costs associated with the interpretation of laws, regulations, or board policy.  Also remember that no student record costs can be entered for information systems. Only enter costs associated with fiscal systems (i.e., WSIPC fees, districtwide IT support).

41  There is help for determining what goes into the Indirect Rates. Information regarding Restricted and Unrestricted Indirect Rates can be found on the OSPI website at: o o Indirect Cost Rates Federal Indirect Rate Frequently Asked Questions. o o Chapter 10 of the Accounting Manual – Grants Management. 41

42  Information can also be found on the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) website. OMB publishes a number of circulars pertaining to various aspects of grants and federal awards. OMB Circular A-87, Cost Principles for State, Local, and Indian Tribal Governments, outlines the guidelines for charging costs to federal grants, including direct costs and indirect costs.  The 5 year Restricted Indirect Costs Rates have been updated and posted.  Updates to the Info edits will be made for the Preliminary Special Education Maintenance of Effort Report. Districts should note that passing the preliminary test does not necessarily mean that a district has passed Maintenance of Effort for Special Education. Final tests are done following the F-196 process. 42

43  The F-196 contains a preliminary MOE test for Special Ed.  This is a basic version of the actual test.  Districts need only pass one of the four tests to pass MOE. o State and Local, in aggregate. o State and Local, per pupil. o Local, in aggregate. o Local, per pupil.  If a district relies on a Local resources test, OSPI must do a lookback to the last year a district relied on a Local resources test, not just the previous year.  If you pass MOE on a Local test on the F-196, be aware that OSPI must do this lookback.  The F-196 will include an info edit about this lookback notice for districts who rely on a Local resources test. 43

44  After your ESD approves your F-196, and you feel that your financial statements are correct, you can proceed with your year- end close. Any review of the district’s F-196 by OSPI does not affect the district’s year-end close process.  If your district requires that an F-196 revision be made, please contact Ramona Garner via at: to request an MS Word document. Upon receipt of your , I will send the district’s F-196 and instructions for making revisions. Don’t forget to cc your ESD when making a revision 44

45  Questions and comments are always welcome and appreciated. Whenever possible, ing your question is beneficial in assuring that OSPI understands the question and allows a “paper trail” for OSPI and the district if the question should arise again. 45
