1 TxEIS Budget Processing for Region 18 ESC Information Systems

2 TxEIS Business Enhancements TRS 1.5% Contribution Effective September 1, 2014 all TRS reporting entities that do not contribute to Social Security for their TRS-eligible employees are required to make a new monthly contribution to TRS in accordance with Senate Bill The following changes will be applied to the TxEIS Human Resources application to accommodate this new monthly TRS contribution. HR > Tables > Taxes/Deductions > TRS Rates: A new field will be added for School Year 2015 to input the the 1.5% contribution. The field will be labeled “TRS Adjust Sal Emplr Rate.” The rate from September 2014 through August 2015 is 1.5%. This rate will be applied to all TRS Eligible employees (employee had TRS Gross during the reporting month) who are not FICA eligible (based on current setting in Pay Info). Release – April 2014 The reporting entity must pay 1.5% on ALL compensation that is TRS eligible, unless the position is subject to the adjusted state minimum salary schedule. For those employees the reporting entity must pay 1.5% on ALL TRS eligible compensation up to the adjusted state minimum. 2

3 TxEIS Business Enhancements TRS 1.5% Contribution HR > Next Year > Interface NY Payroll to NY Budget: This function will be changed to calculate and budget the new expense amount. The amount will be reported and accumulated separately on the employee report so the district can know the amount to be budgeted for this new expense. Expense distribution will be based on the eligible accounts with the 6146 object code. Release – April 2014 HR > Reports > HR Reports > TRS Reports: A new report will be added that will allow the user to calculate this new expense and interface to Finance. This will be expected to be calculated at the end of the reporting month (similar to HRS4000-Stat Min TRS 373). This report will also be added as a pre-post version to Payroll Processing so that the districts can understand the proposed amount of the expense associated to the current payroll. Expense account to be used will be based on the eligible distribution history records associated to the employees (G, O, S and A account types) with the object code of A new column will be added to pay history to capture the amount of the expense for the salary adjustment (similar to the TRS 373 Above State Base expense). Release – Summer

5 Overview By law, the budget must be prepared by a date set by the state board of education, currently August 20 th for districts with a September-August fiscal year and June 19 th for districts with a July-June fiscal year. Only revenues (5XXX) and expenditures (6XXX) are budgeted. Asset, liability, and equity accounts are balance accounts which will be carried into next year’s books when actual revenues and expenditures are closed; therefore, there is no need to budget for them. This will take place when the End of Fiscal Year checklist is completed. 5

6 Helpful Resources Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) should be considered when budgeting, as the indicators will be used to assess the district (http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index4.aspx?id=3864 ).http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index4.aspx?id=3864 District Improvement Plan (DIP) and Campus Improvement Plans (CIPs) should also be considered and integrated into budget planning. The Financial Accountability System Resource Guide also provides information on budgeting: Lastly, your auditors are always a good reference. 6

7 TxEIS Budget Application Provides the district with flexibility when preparing the budget. The budget can be built from scratch or current year information can be used as a base to generate amounts for the next year budget. The amounts can be increased or decreased by a given percentage or amount, or transfer the same amounts. The Budget application consists of three levels of budget processing: requested, recommended and approved. Once the recommended budget has been approved, it can be posted directly to the general ledger in the Finance application. Throughout the year, amendments to the budget may be made through the Budget Amendment Request (BAR) system in Finance or by posting to the Journal Budget tab. 7
