26 Other Operating Expenditures Question 3.8 Include operating expenditures not in previous categories. Examples: Binding Supplies Repair or replacement of furniture and equipment Computer hardware and software that supports library operations Contracted services Utilities TexShare database fees
27 Indirect Costs Question 3.10 A cost incurred for a normal library operating expenditure that is not part of the librarys budget, but is paid for by a local government agency on behalf of the library.
28 Indirect Costs Example: The city purchases Internet access for all city departments, including the library. These costs are not charged back to the librarys budget.
30 Indirect Costs When does a library utilize indirect costs? When the library does not have sufficient expenditures to meet Maintenance of Effort (MOE).
31 Indirect Costs What is not allowed as an indirect cost? o Capital expenditures o Rent for govt owned space
32 Indirect Costs Documentation needed: Breakdown of indirect costs from governmental entity that provided support. Must be signed by government official with fiscal authority.
33 Indirect Costs Final note: Only report what is needed to make up MOE deficiency so it will not adversely affect MOE for the next fiscal year. Documented amount can exceed amount needed-only report enough to meet MOE
34 Capital Outlay One-time or extraordinary expenditures. Building sites New buildings Building additions New equipment Major computer installations Initial book stock Furnishings for new or expanded buildings New vehicles
35 Accreditation Questions Question 3.10-If indirect support needed to meet MOE
36 SECTION 4 Local Financial Effort
37 What is Local Financial Effort? The amount a library spends from local funds on operating expenses. Local funds are funds from the city, county, school district, library district, fines, memorials, and monetary gifts from within the county where the library is located.
38 What is not Local Financial Effort? Loan Star Libraries Tocker grants Gates grants Book Festival grants LSTA grants through regional systems
39 Local Collection Expenditures Question 4.1 This is derived from information provided in Section 3. It is the local funds expended in Print, Electronic, and Other Materials. The subtotal of these is Question 3.7.
40 Local Collection Expenditures Contd If the library spent Loan Star Libraries funds on Collections, deduct that amount from Local Collection Expenditures.
41 Local Funds Expenditures Question 4.2 This is derived from information provided in Section 3. It is the local funds expended in Total Operating Expenditures (Question 3.11).
42 Local Funds Expenditures Question 4.2 Accreditation Question This question is what we use to determine whether the library meets MOE. Include indirect (3.10), if needed.
43 What is MOE? Maintenance of Effort is from rule 13 TAC A public library must demonstrate local effort on an annual basis by maintaining or increasing local operating expenditures or per capita local operating expenditures…
44 What is MOE? Expenditures for the current reporting year will be compared to the average of the total local operating expenditures or to the average of the total per capita local operating expenditures for the three preceding years. Libraries that expend at least $13.50 per capita and at least $125,000 of local funds are exempt form this membership criterion.
45 What is MOE? Per the rule, we calculate both expenditure average and per capita average. We use the lesser amount to determine whether a library meets MOE. If do not meet MOE, must appeal.
46 MOE Example Library X is assigned the following population: LFY2006 – 25,000 LFY2007 – 26,500 LFY2008 – 27,000 LFY2009 – 28,000 Library X reported the following amounts in Question 4.2: LFY2006-$160,000 LFY2007-$170,000 LFY2008-$180,000
47 MOE Example-3 year ave. MOE for LFY2009 would be: $160, , ,000 = $510,000 $510,000 / 3 = $170,000 Or
48 MOE Example-Per Capita MOE for LFY2009 would be: $160,000 + $170,000 + $180,000 = $510,000 25, , ,000 = 78,500 $510,000 / 78,500 = $6.50 per capita $6.50 X 28,000 = $182,000
49 MOE Example MOE for LFY2009 would be either: $170,000 or $182,000 We will use the lower amount of $170,000 Staff looks for at least that amount in 4.2. HOWEVER: make sure also meet 1.81(A) for the librarys appropriate population range. Amount in 4.2 divided by current pop (28,000).
50 MOE Keep in mind: Census estimates, and population assignments, are updated annually. Population assignments are not final until sources of income are analyzed for all libraries, so the 09 pops could change and affect a librarys MOE.
51 Local Govt Funds Expenditures Question 4.3 What are local government funds? City, county, school district, or library district funds
52 Local Govt Funds Expenditures Question 4.3 Accreditation Question This is the question we use to determine whether the library meets the Local Government Funds Expenditures criteria. This is from rule 13 TAC Indirect costs can be used, if necessary. If do not meet this, must appeal.
53 Local Govt Funds Expenditures Question 4.3 We calculate the minimum required in conjunction with rule 13 TAC 1.81 (A). This is the minimum per capita expenditure required. This is different from MOE.
54 Local Govt Funds Expenditures Question 4.3 As stated earlier, Library X has an assigned population of 28,000 for FY09. Per rule 13 TAC 1.81(5)(A),need $5.00 minimum per capita
55 Local Govt Funds Expenditures Question 4.3 Per rule 13 TAC 1.77, we divide this by 2 and multiply by the population assigned. $5.00 /2 = $2.50 $2.50 X 28,000 = $70,000
56 Local Govt Funds Expenditures Question 4.3 Staff will look for at least $70,000 in Question 4.3.
57 Local Govt Funds Expenditures Question 4.3 Note: We use the minimums in 13 TAC 1.81 to calculate Local Government Support. 13 TAC 1.81 minimums increase in If the library spends at least $13.50 per capita and has at least some government support, it is exempt from this rule.
58 Local Per Capita Expenditures- Accreditation Criteria 13 TAC 1.81 (A) is also an accreditation criteria. Derived from Question 4.2 and population. 13 TAC 1.81 (A) minimums increase in If the library fails to meet not more than one criteria in 13 TAC 1.81, can be probational. Will look at the rest of 13 TAC 1.81 in Part II webinar
