7 Accounting-Related Legislation BUDGET AND ACCOUNTING ACT OF 1921:- ESTABLISHED AN EXECUTIVE BUDGET PROCESS - REQUIRED THE PRESIDENT TO SUBMIT HIS BUDGET RECOMMENDATIONS TO CONGRESS EACH YEAR. TO ASSIST HIM, THE BUREAU OF THE BUDGET WAS CREATED - CONGRESS WOULD BETTER COORDINATE REVENUE AND SPENDING DECISIONS - APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEES JURISDICTION OVER SPENDING WAS STRENGTHENED - GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE (GAO) WAS ESTABLISHED
8 Accounting-Related Legislation 1950 BUDGET AND ACCOUNTING ACTAmended the 1921 Budget and Accounting Act.Assigned to the executive branch the responsibility for maintaining accounting systems and producing financial reports.The Comptroller General, in consultation with the Director of OMB, was required to prescribe the principles, standards, and related requirements for accounting to be observed by the executive agencies.Each was given the responsibility for establishing and maintaining systems of accounting and internal controls.Established accounting systems of executive agencies were required to conform to the principles, standards, and related requirements prescribed by the CG.The Budget and Accounting Procedures Act of 1950 ultimately adopted a less descriptive definition of performance budgeting.Specific language detailing the requirements of a performance budget was dropped before final passage of the bill since in the opinion of the Bureau of the Budget (now OMB)1.the executive branch was already implementing performance budgeting, and2.specific performance budgeting language would appear too rigid and make it difficult to proceed with future budgeting improvements.
9 Accounting-Related Legislation THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET AND IMPOUNDMENT CONTROL ACT OF Changed the fiscal year to October 1 through September Established the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Established to provide data to the Congress on and analysis of the federal budget- Established the House and Senate Budget Committees-Charged with development of a “Concurrent Resolution on the Budget”The Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974Describes the current Congressional budget process and controls certain aspects of congressional action, i.e., the budget resolution process.Created the deferral and rescission process.Created the House and Senate Budget CommitteesEstablished the Congressional Budget OfficeMoved the start of the fiscal year from July 1 to October 1
10 Accounting-Related Legislation 1982 Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act:Each agency reports the results of a self-evaluation of the adequacy of systems of internal controlAssurance that agencies are managed properlyObligations and costs comply with applicable lawsFunds, property and other assets are safeguarded against waste, loss, and unauthorized use
11 Accounting-Related Legislation Prompt Payment Act of Pay vendors on time or pay interest
12 Accounting-Related Legislation Chief Financial Officers Act of Required the establishment of CFOs in cabinet departments and specified agencies - CFOs charged with overseeing financial management activities
13 Accounting-Related Legislation Government Performance and Results Act of 1993Requires agencies:to submit 5-year strategic plans…DoD must update at least every 4 yearsto submit annual performance plansNow part of Performance Budgetto report prior year program performance by November 15th of each yearPerformance and Accountability Report (PAR) or separate Performance and Accountability reportsShifts focus of programs from workload activities to performance metric outputs and outcomes.When Congress passed GPRA, it made the following observations,1. Waste and inefficiency in federal programs undermine the confidence of the American people in the government and reduces the federal government’s ability to adequately address vital public needs.2. Federal managers are seriously disadvantaged in their efforts to improve program efficiency and effectiveness, because of insufficient articulation of program goals and inadequate information on program performance.3. Congressional policy making, spending decisions and program oversight are seriously handicapped by insufficient attention to program performance and results.What are your reactions to the Congressional findings?Performance Budgets:Beginning with the FY05 budget, agencies prepare a “performance budget” instead of the Annual Performance Plan (APP) for their budget submission to OMB and Congress.GPRA still requires the APP, but the agency performance budget substitute for the APP per OMB Circular A-11.
14 Accounting-Related Legislation Government Management Reform Act – Required systems to: -- support the control of cost of government -- support full cost reporting and full disclosure of financial data - Required application of accounting standards to produce consistency in financial reporting
15 Accounting-Related Legislation Federal Financial Management Improvement Act – 1996Each agency head establish, evaluate, and maintain adequate systems of accounting and internal controlIncorporate accounting standards and reporting objectivesEach audit of an agency’s financial statements shall report if the agency is in compliance with the preceding requirements

18 Types of Government Funds Department of Defense:Appropriated FundsReimbursable FundsRevolving FundsTrust FundsNonappropriated FundsAPPROPRIATED FUNDS - Provided by Congress and have a limited life for obligationsREIMBURSABLE FUNDS - Funding in addition to those appropriated by Congress - Must be included in the Budget RequestREVOLVING FUNDS - Work like a for-profit business and sell products and services to customers at a price that covers the costs incurredTRUST FUNDS - Used for carrying out specific purposes and programs, (Foreign Military Sales)NON-APPROPRIATED FUNDS - Not appropriated by Congress - Funds generated from:- Sale of goods & services to DOD Military & Civilian personnel Used to support MWR
19 Budgetary AccountingBudgetary accounting is often referred to as fund accounting.Budgetary accounts are a set of accounts that are self-balancing and represent different levels of obligational authority for different units.
20 Budgetary Accounting Purpose Record appropriation status Record subdivisions of budgetary authoritiesRecord valid commitments, obligations, expenditures, outlaysControl use of budgetary authoritiesUse for appropriate purposeUse during time providedUse within amount provided

25 Fiscal Law An agency may obligate and expend appropriations: Only for a proper purposeOnly within the authorized time limitsWithin the amounts established by Congress for a bona fide need
26 Purpose Proper Purpose Rule: For the purposes for which they were appropriatedper 31 U. S. C (a):“ Appropriations shall be applied only to the objects for which the appropriations were made except as otherwise provided by law ”Purpose - Necessary expense rule - Expend only for the purposes authorized in the appropriations acts.The Necessary expense rule must meet three tests:- Logical Relationship must exist- Not prohibited by law- Not funded for elsewhere
27 Time Within the authorized time limits: Expenditure of funds must be incurred within the time for which the appropriation was made available.Do not execute current year funds for prior or future year expenditures. (31 USC 1502)31 U.S.C. 1502“The balance of a fixed-term appropriation is available only for payment of expenses properly incurred during the period of availability or to complete contracts properly made within that period.”
28 TimeA valid obligation must be made to an appropriation within the period the funds are available.O&M: One fiscal yearRDTE: Two fiscal yearsProcurement: Three fiscal yearsMILCON: Five fiscal yearsSCN: Five fiscal yearsNo Year: Dollar specific, indefinite expiration
29 Amount Within the amounts established by Congress: The obligation may not exceed the amountappropriated by statute, nor may it be incurred before the appropriation becomes law (31 U.S.C. 1341)Amount - May not exceed the amounts established in law U.S.C. 1341“An officer or employee of the United States Government may not(A) make or authorize an expenditure or obligation exceeding an amount available in an appropriation or fund for the expenditure or obligation; or(B) involve the government in a contract or obligation for the payment of money before an appropriation is made unless authorized by law.”

32 Accounting Classification Identifies the source of funding and purpose for which usedCreates an audit trail
34 Government Definition Orders placed,Contracts awarded,Grants issued,Services received, etc.---- that will require payments (“outlays”) during the same or a future period.
35 Obligations are Classified as: Undelivered OrderDelivered OrderUse of the Standard General Ledger ensures government-wide identification of apples to apples and oranges to oranges.Unpaid 4801Paid 4802Paid 4902Unpaid 4901
36 What is an “Accrued Expenditure”? Charges…that reflect liabilities incurred and the need to pay for:services…goods…received…amounts becoming owed under programs for which no current service or performance is required (such as annuities, benefit payments..)*Expenditures accrue regardless of when cash payments are made…**GAO, “Glossary of Federal Terms Used in the Federal Budget Process”, 1981.

40 A payment of an obligation Once all payments are made, the obligation goes away (is “liquidated”)Outlays during a fiscal year may be for payment of obligations incurred in prior years or in the same year
41 Outlays are Paid Obligations Undelivered OrderDelivered OrderAn outlay is an accounting event that has to be recorded in an accounting system.UNPAIDPAIDPAIDUNPAIDOUTLAY
42 Reimbursements Project Order (41 U.S.C. 23): Placed with and accepted by:A DoD Government Owned and Government Operated (GOGO) establishment.Shipyard, arsenal, ordinance plant or other manufacturing plant or shop.
43 Project OrdersSame as a commercial contract to the customers’ appropriationExtends beyond the life of the appropriation. Up to five years after the appropriation expires for new obligationsOver-billing may create a 31 USC 1517 violationNormally issued for the overhaul or manufacturing of a specific number of items within a specific time frame for a specific pricePerforming activity should incur costs of not less than 51% of the total costs of performing the workThe performing activity must not accept the project order if the requirements of the project order regulations are not metA Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (DD 448 Form) is used to issue project orders
44 Project Order Characteristics Specific regarding work to be doneSingle purpose with identification to a final product or end itemIncludes a production scheduleIncludes funded cost per itemUsually mission orientedBe performed in houseBona fide need in the year executedCommence work within a reasonable time (90 days)Return orders for cancellation if work financed by an expiring appropriation is not started by 1 January
45 Economy Act Orders Must be closed-out by 30 September. Change in dollar amount requires:An amendment to the original MIPR (DD Form 448).Acceptance (DD Form 448-2) of the amendment by the performing activity.Adjust the obligation in accounting based on the acceptance of (DD Form 448-2).
46 Non-Economy Act Orders Non-Economy Act orders are for intra-governmental support, where a DoD activity needing goods and services obtains them from a Non-DoD agency.Specific statutory authority is required to place an order with a Non-DoD agency for goods or services, and to pay the associated cost.If specific statutory authority does not exist, the default will be the Economy Act, 31 U.S.C
47 Customer/Provider Scenario Customer (ordering agency) prepares MIPR requesting the repair and overhaul of 400 widgets for a total cost of $ 1,300,000. The MIPR was issued as a Project Order and is funded with an annual O&M appropriationPerforming agency accepts the MIPR and prepares a MIPR acceptance, DD Form 448-2Based on the MIPR acceptance the ordering agency records an obligation in their accounting records and the performing agency records an order received in their accounting records in the amount of $1,300,000

49 How do we Link to the Budget? Accounting events are assigned unique identifiers from a standard government-wide list (U.S. Standard General Ledger)All federal agencies are required to use these standard accounts in order to properly link to the Budget

55 Proprietary Accounting Balance SheetAssets = Liabilities + Net Position1000 Assets = 2000 Liabilities Net Position (Capital)Statement of Net CostExpenses – Exchange Revenue = Net Cost of OperationsProprietary accounting (accrual basis) captures costs and revenues and applies them to the appropriate period.More complex than Budgetary accounting. Requires more general ledger accounts to accommodate this complexity.Statements compiled:Balance SheetStatement of Net CostStatement of Changes in Net Position
56 The Historical Cost Concept Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires that assets always be stated at their actual cost rather than at their current market valuesAccounting is concerned with what you paid for something, not what it is worth today
57 The Matching Principle Concept Expenses of a period that are recorded and reported are only those incurred to produce the revenues generated for the same periodSome expenses require periodic adjustment to reflect only the amount of expenses for the financial periodExamples:Prepaid InsurancePrepaid RentDepreciation of Capital Assets
58 Cash versus Accrual Accounting Cash accounting --revenue is recorded when cash is received and expenses when cash payment is madefails to match revenue with related expenses, therefore does not lead to logical income measurement
61 Accrual Accounting (cont.) Example: $10,000 payroll that is split between two reporting periods:A portion is earned but not paid at end of the month:4 days ($4,000) earned in September6 days($6,000 to be earned in October)$4,000 is recorded as a payroll expense in September. $4,000 is recorded as a liability (salaries payable)

65 Ledger AccountMeans of accumulating in “one place” all information regarding changes in a specific accountComprised of three elementstitleleft side which is called the debit sideright side which is called the credit sideCommonly referred to as a “T Account”
66 General LedgerAll ledger accounts are maintained within the general ledgerFederal government general ledger account structure is established, maintained, and updated by the Treasury Department
67 Accounts And Ledgers Accounts Are Classified As Follows: Assets (What Is Owned)Liabilities - (What Is Owed)Costs/Expenses - (What Is Spent)Revenue/Income - (What Is Earned)Equity - (Assets –Liabilities =Net Worth) Gains/Losses Budget Memorandum
68 The Accounting Equation Assets = Liabilities + Equity OrA = L + E Or A – L = E Given The Accounting Equation, With Any Two Of The Three Factors, We Can Determine The Third Factor
69 Double Entry Accounting Forms the basis for most current day accounting operationsEvery business transaction affects two or more accountsEqual debit and credit entries are made for every transactionTotal of all debit entries must equal the total of all credit entries
70 Normal Account Balance Refers to the Debit (left side) or Credit (right side) of a ledger accountAssets normally have debit balancesLiabilities and net position accounts normally have credit balancesExpense accounts normally have debit balancesRevenue accounts normally have credit balances
