How do I print a budget position report?

Go to Reports > Financial Reports

As part of a monthly review, make sure your numbers are within a reasonable range.  As of June, expect the budget to be 50% used.  Are there any expense items over 75% or 100% used?  Are there any lagging revenue items under 25%?  Ask questions like these help identify items that may be applied to the wrong expense BARS code or overspent revenue expectations.

Report Filter

  1. Choose Position
  2. Select desired Date Range for range of months to include.  In this example, June is the month for review, so January through June is displayed.

    • Check Include Encumbrances to include expense for any unpaid Accounts Payable entries.
    • Check Print MTD to display "To" month in it's own column in addition to the YTD amounts.
    • Check New Page On Expense to start a new page at the end of revenues.
