1 Getting Started with PACE
2 Understanding the Objective What is PACE? Why are we doing this? Who is doing this? When are we doing this? How are we doing this?
3 Understanding the Objective What is PACE? –President’s Advisory Committee on Efficiency and Effectiveness –Designed to categorize by function every dollar from all fund sources and assign every FTE to a specific function –PACE = Academic Workload Study
4 PACE Matrix What is Being Gathered? Funds: General non General Functions: Core (3) Enabling (12) Enabling Activities (55) Expense Categories: EPA Core Faculty EPA Other Professional SPA Staff All Other Expenses
5 Taxonomy Definition of Core Functions Listing of Enabling Functions with associated enabling activities
6 Appendix: Taxonomy Core functions: Instruction includes expenditures for: –Preparation, delivery and evaluation of academic content to students (Regular Term, Distance Education, Summer School, and Lifelong Education) –Departmental research and public service that are not separately budgeted should be included in this classification –Excludes personnel expenditures for the administrative portion of academic deans.

16 Understanding the Objective What is PACE? Why are we doing this? “The 3 Buckets” Optimize at the entity level Leverage system strengths Modify or delete processes as needed
17 Understanding the Objective What is PACE? Why are we doing this? Who is doing this? –Every institution in the UNC system –UNC General Administration –Pilot institutions for developing the process and data tools were NCSU and NCCU
18 Understanding the Objective What is PACE? Why are we doing this? Who is doing this? When are we doing this? –Now until of July 12 at UNCP –Entire process will run through end of 2006 –Timing of project noted
19 Overall Project Timeline Phase 1 – Build the Foundation –Establish campus network –Create templates and control data –Conduct training down to data-entry level Phase 2 – Gather the Data –Input and review data at department level –Review and approve data at college/division level (NLT July 12) –Submit final data to GA with appropriate “footnotes” (NLT July 18) Phase 3 – Analyze the Data Phase 4 – Develop Ideas and Recommendations Phase 5 – Present final report to President Bowles
20 Understanding the Objective What is PACE? Why are we doing this? Who is doing this? When are we doing this? How are we doing this? –Create support structure on campus –Design tools to assist in data entry –Provide training and assistance along the way
21 Control Totals What are they? - Actual expenditures from General Fund - Actual expenditures from Non-General Fund - FTE position count and salaries plus an estimation of fringe benefits Where did they come from? - FTEs came from the PDF for Fall Personnel Costs came from the PDF based on total salaries and estimated fringe benefits - Expenditures came from June 30, 2005 financial reports in Banner Certain eliminations have been already been made Control data cannot be changed!
22 How Do I Get Started? 1.Go to Financial Planning and Budget’s webpage (www.uncp.edu/fpb) 2.Review your OUC information on the PACE Control Data Spreadsheet 3.Review your employee information on the PACE FTE Control Detail 4.Review the PACE Sample Template 5.Think about your unit, department, or division and what people do over the course of a typical year 6.Open the Template (https://www.acs.ncsu.edu/scripts/pace/uncp/eff.pl) 7. and retrieve your control totals 8.Use the Sample Template to highlight the functions that apply to your OUC 9.Distribute the FTEs and expenses across the highlighted functions 10.The Spreadsheet will automatically add up the FTE and expenses for each function 11.Return to the Template (https://www.acs.ncsu.edu/scripts/pace/uncp/eff.pl) 12.Enter these totals on your Template 13.Make sure your totals match the control data totals
23 Logging In Once logged in, this page will appear: 1)Select Data Entry (the Reporting “button” shows a data summary for an OUC; no data can be entered on the Reporting page) 2)Use the drop down menu to choose your Organizational Unit Code (OUC) 3)Click Go Note: You will see 6 digit codes constructed for the PACE project. The first 2 digits represent your “School Code” and the last 4 digits represent your “Department” code. The codes were derived from Banner codes and may be familiar to you. Your code was pre-printed on your worksheet, and a code list is included in your packet.
24 The Summary Page After logging in, the Summary Page will appear, listing both Core Functions (3 total) and Enabling Functions (12 total) in the left- hand pane. No data can be entered on the Summary Page To begin entering data, click one of the activities under either Core Functions or Enabling Functions
25 Selecting Functions and Activities Depending on which type of function you select, you will see a list of activities that correspond to that function Core Functions (have no enabling activities) Enabling Functions (have several enabling activities each)
26 Entering Data Depending on which type of function you select, you will see a list of activities that correspond to that function Column totals appear in blue at the top of each column (no data entry possible) Row totals appear in blue to the right of each activity Enter number of full- time employees (FTEs) and the personnel cost associated with those employees in the white rows/columns Note: Column and row totals cannot be manually edited Don’t forget to enter your non-General Fund data below the red line!
27 Saving Data Once all information has been entered, scroll down to the Grand Totals and Control Totals lines to make sure they agree. When your data is entered and the totals are balanced, click Save. After clicking Save, the Summary Page will appear showing all data entered for each activity. Click Cancel to return to the Summary Page without saving data
28 Summing It Up Once back at the Summary page, select the appropriate status level (box in upper left corner) for your actions: REVIEW SEQUENCE In progress: initial entry; can save and return Complete: complete at the dept level; reviewed by Dept Chair/Director Approved: reviewed by the Dean/Vice Chancellor or designee Final: reviewed by the Budget Office
29 Selecting Another OUC If you are entering data for more than one OUC, from the Summary Page click Return to Main to go back to the Login page. Once back at the Log in screen, you can select another OUC. Click here to return to the login page to select another OUC Finished for the day? Close your browser!
30 Clearing up Confusing Situations Example: What do I do with a FTE with multiple duties, e.g. a faculty member who is a program coordinator? Solution: Allocate to both core and enabling functions Example: What is an FTE? How do I account for 9-month contracts? Solution: An FTE is a full time employee on either a academic year or annual (12 month) appointment Example: I’ve got a lot of people doing the same thing Solution: Allocate functions across the group, no need to allocate by individual (i.e., housekeepers; cashiers)
