15 Perkins Loan Management University managed Federal Financial Aid Program - Perkins Loans Schools disperse loans to students Federal government chosen bank manages collections and repayments back to schools

16 Perkins Loan Management Bank needs to know: Ì New borrowers Ì New loans for existing borrowers Ì Verify enrollment full / part time Ì Graduating students School needs to know: Ì Previous loans for student Ì Repayment status

17 Perkins Loan Management Variations of a theme…

18 Perkins Loan Management Old Promissory Note process for each semester To be replaced with once only Master Promissory Note Quick filters

19 Perkins Loan Management Combined history of SIS and PSFT activity Current semester’s distributions PSFT is semester 1034 SIS is 20032, PSFT is semester 1034 SIS is 20032, Current semester’s loan activities

20 Reconciliation Back-office accounting issues Ì Boring, low interest, afterthought, minimal support Ì The usual TU has to reconcile PSFT to FRS and FRS to R*STARS Cash and Accounts Receivable affected by PSFT implementation

21 Reconciliation – Cash Two divergent paths for payments Non-student payments FRS Student payments FRS PSFT  Payments summarized into large SF batches. Individual detail lost. 10,000s transactions10s transactions

22 Reconciliation – Cash Two divergent paths for payments Do you worry about the $0.35 difference? (Hint: MS Access can’t do math very well.)

23 Reconciliation – Cash A look into the ODBC details FRS ODBC and SQL extract results PSFT ODBC tables PSFT SQL extract results – Item_SF with Item_Line_SF Direct FRS payments with added PSFT student payment details Combine FRS non- student payments with PSFT student details.

24 Reconciliation – Accounts Receivable PSFT AR tables are always ‘on’ Ì ITEM_SF is main table Ì Over night processes Ì On-line web payments – 24/7 Need to ‘freeze’ AR data for reconciliation TU made three ‘snapshot’ tables based on delivered items (exact copies) SF batch feed process to FRS Ì Stop feeds into PSFT – processes, web, etc. Ì Run GL posting, SF batch processing to FRS Ì Make snapshots

25 Labor Distribution & Payroll Reallocation Blend of reporting payroll expenses by organization and moving charges between departments Ì Added file of all payroll items: 500,000 recs. Ì Automatic report files based on wide range of grouping possibilities Ì Ad-hoc payroll review: DeptID or EmplID Ì Reconciliation with state’s grouping: Program & Fund Ì Manage reallocation with automatic feed to FRS of changes (but no changes in PSFT)

26 Labor Distribution & Payroll Reallocation Main page Different ways to group departments for reporting
