How do I Know Which Indexes to Budget? You can run a report! Log on the Banner SAIS Report Web –https://sais.montana.edu/cgi-bin/msu_sb_v3.plhttps://sais.montana.edu/cgi-bin/msu_sb_v3.pl Go to Report Type: “Finance Reports” Run the report named Index Listing (by Org) The only parameter you have to enter is your Org number (i.e , , etc.) 39
40 Which Indexes to Budget? The answer is that you should budget all indexes in this list except the ones discussed earlier (4Wxxxx, 436xxx, 437xxx) For any index that is in Fund , you will receive a budget allocation and must budget to that. For all other indexes, use FY14 actuals as a basis to budget both your revenue and expenses in each index.
–Make sure to budget ALL necessary indexes –Budget 6% admin fee on designated indexes in account code 62889A. This is 6% of budgeted expenses. –A maximum budget of $5,000 is allowed in –All accounts that have $0 budgeted need to be deleted. –Use A15GL1 as the Budget Phase and FY2015 as the Budget ID when entering your budget information (case sensitive) –DO NOT budget IDC or Grant funds (436xxx, 437xxx, 4Wxxx, or 425xxx-429xxx) –DO NOT budget in personnel account codes used in Salary Planner (i.e , 61124, 61125, 61126, 61127, 61128, 61224, 61225, 61226, 61227, 61228) Key Points 41

Calculating Changes Once you have entered all of your information, you can click the “Calculate” button to see the proposed changes you have made to your budget before you post them. 56
You will now see the amounts that you entered in the “Cumulative Change” column and the calculated new budget in the “New Budget” column. 57
Posting Budgets Once you have verified that your budget amounts are correct, press the “Post” button. You should now see a change in the “Proposed Budget” column. This is what will load into Banner. 58
Summary of Changes Posted After posting, there will be a summary of changes by account type at the bottom of the screen. Base Budget is the starting point, Proposed Budget is what FY15 will be and Cumulative Change is the difference between the two. 59
Deleting Accounts After posting, if you have any accounts codes with the New Budget column equal to zero, these need to be deleted. Check the “Delete Record” box and hit the “Post” button again. 60
Although the account code still appears after posting the change, it now has a notation in the status column (DEL) that indicates it will be deleted. 61 Deleting Accounts
