FY14-15 Budget Turnaround (BTA) screens for basic budget expense are due to your department’s final approver before the submission deadline of June 23, 2014. The BTA screens must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org your department’s final approver.
If you have specific questions regarding your budgets, please call or email your Budget Analyst. Contact information is on our web site at: http://www.udel.edu/Budget/staff . If you encounter any technical problems with the BTA On-line System, please contact Cathy Zinszer (x1234). We need to be aware of any problems or concerns and welcome your questions.
The information on the BTA screens is as of the March month-end close. Make sure that your New Permanent Budget Total does not exceed the Target amount. Refer to the BTA Budget Targets document under BTA Instructions on the Budget Office web site for additional information.
On the Purpose Detail screens the budgets can be adjusted by entering the $ Change, the % Change, or the New Perm Budget. By entering any one of those values, the others will automatically calculate. All changes must be accompanied by an explanation in the “Comment” column required by the system. BTA Screens will be returned if comments are inadequate or additional information has not been provided via e-mail to your Budget Analyst.
The BTA System now automatically calculates benefits as salaries are adjusted including when a new salary account is added using the “Add More Lines” feature on the Purpose Detail screens. They will adjust based on the FY14-15 rates listed below and the comments will include the rate used.
The Class field is included on the Purpose Detail screens to allow salary budgeting at the class level instead of at the account level for those who want more budget detail. If salaries are currently permanently budgeted using class, those budgets appear on the Purpose Detail screens; otherwise, the budgets are by account. Either method of budgeting may be used. To change to budgeting by class, enter each salary line using the “Add More Lines” function.
When downloading the prior 3 years of historical information from the BTA screens, the file will be saved as a CSV file unless you hit “Save As” and save it as an Excel file. To print a PDF copy of both the Purpose Summary and the Purpose Detail screens use the printer-friendly view on the Purpose Summary screen at any time.
