About Budget Construction
Budget Construction for FY18 will be open to users on Monday, March 6, 2017. Completed submissions will be due back to the Office of Budget & Planning by Friday, April 14, 2017. This is a shorter time period than last year but still provides nearly 6 weeks for Units to enter and submit their budget. The Budget team is looking forward to working with the campus community to ensure a successful budget cycle in Budget Construction. If you have questions, please contact your assigned Budget Analyst or the Office of Budget & Planning at 486-6288.
Permanent Budget Transfers - The last day to transfer permanent funding for this Fiscal Year is Friday, 2/24/17. Please have your eDocs submitted to the Office of Budget & Planning prior to that date. This allows the permanent funding in BC to remain static throughout the process. One-time transfers may continue through the end of the Fiscal Year.
BC Data Load - The budget and actual data will be pulled from KFS as of 3/1/17 (through Fiscal Period 08). The position and employee data will be pulled from CORE as of 3/1/17.
Positions - The fiscal managers have received (or will be receiving) a list of vacant positions to review so that our office can help inactivate ones that should no longer exist.
BC Processors - This week, each Unit/School/College fiscal manager will receive a list of employees currently set up as BC processors. We ask that you review this list promptly and provide us with any adds, changes, or deletions. A user will not have access to the system if they are not on this list.
Training - We will be offering both a refresher course and full training course over the next month. Please see descriptions below and click on the following link for course times and registration: Professional Development
Throughout the months of March and April, we will also be offering open lab sessions, where users can drop in for hands-on assistance with specific questions or guidance on their overall budget submission.
