Fund Code not 1-9. First digit of Purpose Code not 1-9. New in FY04 for expenditures in funds 1-8: New in FY04 for expenditures in funds 1-8: PRC or Object Code = 000.

30 Monthly Expenditure Reports MFR Reports Information Dropped Per Finance Officers Request (PGA10RP2) (PGA10RP2) Includes items that were dropped at the LEA Finance Officers request. To request that certain funds and/or PRCs be excluded for per-pupil calculations, complete the Funds and/or PRCs to exclude for MFR Process request form located on DPIs website. You may not exclude Fund 1 or Fund 3 codes/PRCs.

31 Monthly Expenditure Reports MFR Reports MFR Revenue & Expenditure Summary (PGA10RP5) (PGA10RP5) PRC Report is grouped by PRC. Shows all revenue and expenditure codes. Transactions categorized by Fund: State, Federal, and Local. For each Fund, shows Total Revenues, Total Expenditures, and any Difference. Are State, Federal, and Local flags set correctly?

32 AFR/MFR Reminders The MFR File is picked up at same time as UERS financial files. ALL items on the Error Report for ALL funds must be corrected. Items on the Verification Report are ticklers. MFR Exclude Form on website - form.pdf

33 AFR/MFR Reminders Verify that your local PRCs are flagged correctly so the expenditures are in the appropriate column (state, federal, or local) on Report 5. The DBS/MFR match report (899) reconciles your books to DPIs books for Funds 1 and 3. All YTD Discrepancies should be corrected.

34 AFR/MFR Reminders Review the AFR/MFR Recommendations posted on the Financial and Business Services web page to ensure you have reported your Per Pupil expenditures accurately. In Periods 10 – 13, review the preliminary Per Pupil reports to see how your numbers look compared to prior years. If there are major discrepancies between years, you need to be able to explain these.

35 AFR/MFR Reminders For Periods 10, 11 and 12: If the numbers on your MFR report 5 do not match the numbers on your MFR 899 report, the difference is ENCUMBRANCES. For Periods 10, 11 and 12, DPI includes encumbrances in the MFR reports because we run preliminary PER Pupil numbers. Including the encumbrances with the expenditures helps DPI give the LEAs more accurate Per Pupil numbers. For all other Periods (1 – 9 and 13), encumbrances are not included.

36 AFR/MFR Reminders All Funds (State, Federal, & Local) MUST use standard coding guidelines. Coding errors could lead to an unintentional misrepresentation of the Per Pupil Expenditure data. Workshop Expenses - Object 312 ONLY used with Purpose Codes 5930, 6930 and Object 421 only used to record State Textbook Account transactions in Fund 2. Even when a PRC has an Open Chart, the Purpose and Object codes have to go together only goes with a 5XXX purpose code.

37 Invalid Budget Codes If invalid budget codes continue to be used by LEAs, DPI might: Go to a financial warning status for LEAs (as is currently done for charter schools). Ignore, rather than move, expenditures reported on invalid codes, as is currently done with expenditures reported on liability codes. This would effect the zero out and bank reconciliation. Add invalid code errors to the Finance Officers award criteria with updates to State Board members and a letter to the superintendent.

38 MFR/AFR Q & A Q - What if the 899 report shows a $ difference on one expenditure code and a negative $ difference on another? A - It could be one of several things: The code used to record the expense was invalid and DPI posted the expense to another code. Do an AJE to move the expense on LEAs books and mark the invalid code as unusable.

39 MFR/AFR Q & A LEA did an AJE to move an expense but did not do a 202 for DPI to make the corresponding change. To correct, send a 202 to DPI but do not interface to LEA GL. LEA sent a 202 to DPI but did not interface the entries to LEA GL. To correct, post AJEs to LEA books. LEA sent a 202 to DPI and interfaced the entries to LEA GL but BUD batch was rejected. To correct, correct the BUD batch and resend the batch to DPI but do not interface to LEA GL.

40 MFR/AFR Q & A Q - What if the 899 report shows a difference on a salary code and it is not the net or gross of a payroll check written from that code? A - It probably is an employee deduction amount(s) resulting from one of the following:

41 MFR/AFR Q & A If an employees payroll check is voided at the end of the month and either not re- written or re-written for a smaller amount, credits will remain outstanding to the vendor and the 899 will show MTD and YTD differences. When the credits are included in the next check to the vendor in the next month, the next 899 will show offsetting MTD differences but 0 YTD differences. Verify deduction amount(s) and be patient.

42 MFR/AFR Q & A If a payroll related vendor check is voided at the end of the month and not re-written until the following month, the 899 will show MTD and YTD differences. When the check is written to the vendor in the next month, the next 899 will show offsetting MTD differences but 0 YTD differences. Verify deduction amount(s) and be patient. Depending on the amount of the check this could have an impact on the zero out and you may need to re- request the cash for next month.

43 MFR/AFR Q & A If a payroll related vendor check is not dated within the current month, DPI will not see the expenditures and the 899 will show MTD and YTD differences. Verify deduction amount(s) differences. The check date will determine when and if DPI will pick up the expenditures through data file in a future pay period. A paper 202 would be needed if a prior period check date was used.

44 MFR/AFR Q & A If a payroll invoice was accrued to an incorrect vendor, liability codes can be used to easily move the payment to the correct vendor. Credit the incorrect vendor and then debit/invoice the correct vendor, using the same liability code for each entry. If the credit to the incorrect vendor results in a zero/deselected payment, you must write a manual zero net check to the incorrect vendor to zero out the liability, clear the invoices to the vendor and report the correct deduction expenses to DPI. Failure to write a zero net check will result in MTD and YTD differences on the 899 report.

45 MFR/AFR Q & A Q - What if the differences between DBS (DPIs books) and MFR (LEAs books) are due to differences between installment accruals and actual installment expense? A – To correct, post AJEs to move the differences from the current year expenditure codes to the installment collapse codes. The three collapse codes are , and

46 Escheating Checks In most cases, the easiest way to escheat a check is to simply accrue the invoice against the cash account. This will debit the expense code (cash) and credit cash (cash) leaving a zero net effect on the LEAs current year books, giving a history audit trail and producing a legal voucher. Remove/Clear the original voucher on the outstanding check list in bank recon.

47 Replacing old checks If it is determined that the old check should be re-issued to the original payee, the same process can be followed as for escheating checks. Accrue an AP invoice to the original payee using the cash code and re-issue the check. This will debit the expense code (cash) and credit cash (cash) leaving a zero net effect on the LEAs current year books, giving a history audit trail and producing a legal voucher. Remove/Clear the original voucher on the outstanding check list in bank recon.

48 Escheating and Replacing Checks Since the cash code is being used on the AP invoice accrual entry for these two types of checks, you will receive a UERS edit stating that the purpose and object codes are invalid. Verify that there are no other errors and continue with check processing. Ally Barfield the check number and amount so DPI will not count the entry as a UERS error when we pick up your financial data.
