Budget Planning & Analysis has completed its review of the budget transfer process under the RCM model and offers the following guidance related to budget transfers:
- Impacts Year-to-Date (YTD) Budget
- Guidelines for processing are more flexible:
- There must be sufficient budget in the cost center(s) to be reduced.
- Budget transfers will be permitted within the same planning unit (as defined at ORG Level 2 in the Chart of Accounts Hierarchy).
- Budget transfers will not be permitted across different planning units; exception for reorganizations.
- Budget transfers cannot cross Fund Type and Fund Relationships.
- Exceptions to General Accounting’s Natural Account rules may be allowed, for example a Credit to NA 988600 and a Debit to Supplies and Services Natural Accounts.
- A budget transfer can be used to load additional revenue and expenses if more revenue is earned during the year than anticipated.
- Submission Process
- Budget transfers should be reviewed and submitted through a planning unit’s FMG or CFAO to BPA.
- Email completed budget transfers to email@example.com
- Budget Planning & Analysis will process budget transfers in approximately one week of receiving them.
