UGA Budget Management is a reporting and planning system used for a variety of reporting, budget planning, and salary setting purposes. It functions as the primary tool for the annual Budget Planning and Salary Setting, works as a budgetary reporting tool, and provides budget journal creation assistance.
UGA Budget Management has a variety of reporting options. Campus users are encouraged to review available reports and request new reports by contacting email@example.com.
Reports are focused on providing information to assist users in managing their budgets. These reports can be high level and focused on overall operations, or detailed with specific chartfields displayed.
Users can access reports by logging in, then clicking “Explore” in the upper left area, then open the “UGA Reports (Current)” folder. There are subfolders to identify the focus of the reports. Most reports have a “Department” prompt, while some may have additional prompts. Users will want to type the letter of the chartfield and then the number.
Budget Planning and Salary Setting (BPSS)
BPSS is an annual event at UGA to develop the next fiscal year budget and, when permitted by the Board of Regents, provide our employees merit increases. The BPSS tool, called “BUDDEV,” is available in UGA Budget Management in late summer of each year. Users can begin providing employee funding and creating their chartstring budgets once it is made available. We do ask that users abstain from providing merit increases until official merit amounts are communicated in the spring of each cycle.
Below are some of the more frequently asked questions from our first year of using BPSS within UGA Budget Management:
Quarterly Amendment Review (QAR)
On a quarterly basis, the University Budget Office (UBO) reports to the Board of Regents (BOR) the budget for the University of Georgia (UGA). One of the primary breakdowns of this reporting is by fund code (detail) and account code type (Revenue, Personal Services, NonPersonal Services). To assist in this reporting requirement, UBO is asking each intermediate unit/school/college to have a positive balance in each fund code that begins with a “1” and each account code type that is within the unit.
User can find additional information regarding the QAR, such as dates and standard operating procedures, on the University Budget Office website.
