Schedule & Deadlines

Budget Preparation

Planning is an ongoing process. Some steps that can be taken to begin preparation early in the year:

  • Line out the revenue schedule to be ready to insert into the budget forms when available.

  • Coordinate with your Account Manager counterparts to verify coverage for position transfers and expected VT revenue.

  • Compare current year activity to the budget to identify trends or variances that will indicate where next year’s budget may need adjustment.
    • Budget- Manager Balance - Budgeted by Ledger Account - FIN - CR (NSHE)
    • Cash Balance- Manager Balance - Activity Summary by Worktag (All Funds) - FIN - CR (NSHE)
    • Position Budget- Position Budget by Worktag - FIN - CR (NSHE)
    • Note: Use Position for the Budget Structure

  • Track changes that will impact revenue or expense for current year activity as well as next year’s budget (enrollment or fee changes, position moves, employee turnover, major one-time purchases, etc.).
