211.SCH: PJTD Revenue And Expense Outline for G&C/URF
Last Updated: 04/20/12
The 211.SCH report provides a project-to-date summary of the selected accounts, showing the full outline budget report format for Sponsored Programs and the URF fund. It is a drill down companion to the 201.SCH report., which provides only the revenue and expense totals. Although still at a summary level, the 211.SCH report provides a breakdown of current period and project-to-date revenue and expense activity by object code groupings. This report can not be used to report on any other funds.
The report provides revenue & expense budget, actual, encumbrance and budget variance balances. Period-to-date actuals, year-to-date, and project-to-date balances are included. Percentages are provided to compare project actuals to budget amounts; as well as project actuals plus encumbrances to the project budget.
Several report options are provided as parameters to allow users to select one or both Fund Groups for the report.
The report uses a matrix format. The balances are used to create the columns and are read from left to right. The rows represent the groups of object codes associated with the balances. The sort order is controlled by a combination of page breaks and report templates. Specific information regarding page-breaks, sort order and templates for this report is described below.
The report options determine the page-break, the first level of sort order, and the level of aggregation for the report.
For the Sponsored Program and Service Center funds group, the 211.SCH offers two different report options. You may choose to see sponsored program funds summarized:
1 by CNAC and Fund Group (CNAC/FG),
2 by CNAC, Fund Group and Organization (CNAC/FG/ORG),
or N Not Selected.
For the University Research Foundation fund, the 211.SCH offers two different break options. You may choose to see the URF fund summarized
4 by CNAC, Fund and Organization (CNAC/FUND/ORG),
5 by CNAC and Fund (CNAC/FUND,)
or N Not Selected.
This report uses templates to determine the fundgroups and the rows. Funds are aggregated into fund groups based on the Revised Responsibility Center Management (RCM) Model. For more information on how the fund groups are defined, see http://www.budget.upenn.edu/dlDocs/fund_aggregations.pdf
Row templates are used to create the rows on the report. The row template determines the order of the rows (e.g., revenue followed by expense, salaries followed by employee benefit expense), the group of object codes to be included in each labeled row (e.g., Travel & Entertainment includes 520x and 521x), and the level of sub-totaling.
Template 1C is used to define the rows. In this report, balances are NOT reported down to the object code level. Instead, each row contains the sum of the balances for all of the object codes included in that row. For more information on the row templates used in this report, see http://www.budget.upenn.edu/dlDocs/RCM_template_1C.pdf
Note that this report uses Template 1C. Reports 102.ORG, 103.ORG, 115.ORG and 201.SCH, which show Grants and Contracts and URFs (and optionally Service Centers), also use template 1C (or 5C). Templates 1C and 5C treat Overhead on Sponsored Programs (i.e., Grant & Contract Overhead Charges) differently than Template 1A, and this needs to be reconciled in order to go back and forth between these reports.
Center LOW/HIGH (Required)
Enter the low/high values for the Responsibility Center.
NAC LOW/HIGH: (Required)
Enter the low/high values for the Net Asset Class. All three Net Asset Classes are supported on this report. To receive a separate report for each of the three net asset classes, specify 0 as the low value and 2 as the high value. In addition, two special “summary” NAC values are also supported:
T : When this NAC value is specified, the information on the report will be consolidated across all three net asset classes for the specified school or center.
S : When this NAC value is specified, the information on the report will be consolidated across the unrestricted and temporarily restricted net asset classes only (NAC ‘0' plus NAC ‘1').
ORG LOW/HIGH: (Required)
Enter the Low/High values for the ORGs to be included for the report; to report on all ORGs within a school or center, specify the lowest ORG to the highest ORG in that school/center.
This report can be produced for either or both of the shaded areas shown below by selecting the appropriate report option.

BREAK BY ORG PARENT INSTEAD OF ORG? (Y/N).
To use org parent processing, specify a parent org for the org low value, choose report option 2 or 4, and choose Y here. For more information on org parent processing, see http://www.budget.upenn.edu/rcm/org_parent.shtml
ACTIVE ONLY?: (Y/N)
Y: The report will include only those account combinations which are currently “active” ; all “inactive” combinations will be excluded.
N: The report will include both “active” and “inactive” combinations. ‘N’ is the default value.
If you choose Yes, a common definition is used to determine whether the account is “active” or “inactive” (see Section 1.4, ACTIVE vs. EXPIRED ACCOUNTS). Since this definition does not use the grant start and end dates, some grants that have already ended may be included on the reports. While screening out inactive grants is useful when running the 10x Grant reports, it's normally not necessary or appropriate when running this report.
The report heading includes the following information:
Indicates the chart of accounts segments used to create the report break, depending on which option was chosen. The next line will show the chart of accounts values used for this particular part of the report. The codes used for fund groups, sub groups, and categories are shown on http://www.budget.upenn.edu/dlDocs/fund_aggregations.pdf
Indicates the accounting period for which information is being reported. Accounting period is specified as a parameter when the report is requested.
The alphabetic descriptions associated with the CNAC/FUND GROUP or CNAC/ORG/FUND GROUP values are provided.
From left to right, the report columns will provide the following balances:
PJTD BUDGET: The balance in this column is the operating budget. The amount reported is the sum of all budget activity from the beginning of the project up to the specified accounting period. Any changes to the operating budget within the accounting period being reported will also be reflected in this balance.
CURRENT MONTH ACTUALS: The balance in this column will contain the period-to-date actuals for the specified accounting period.
FYTD ACTUALS: The balance in this column will contain fiscal-year-to-date actuals, that is, the total activity from the beginning of the fiscal year up to and including the specified accounting period.
PJTD ACTUALS: The balance in this column will contain project-to-date actuals, that is, the total activity from the beginning of the project up to and including the specified accounting period.
% ACTUAL TO BUDGET: The data in this column is the PJTD Actuals divided by the amount in the PJTD Budget, stated as a percentage.
ENCUMBRANCES: The balances in this column represent all outstanding encumbrances up to and including the specified accounting period.
% ACT/ENC TO BUDGET: The data in the column reflects the sum of the amounts in the PJTD Actuals and Encumbrance columns, divided by the amount in the PJTD Budget column, stated as a percentage.
BUDGET BALANCE AVAILABLE: A calculated column that represents the amount of project budget dollars that have not been spent or encumbered. The column is calculated as follows:
PJTD Budget - (PJTD ACTUALS + ENCUMBRANCES)
Section At The Bottom:
On the 201.SCH and 211.SCH reports, the cash position section at the bottom of the report is populated for all funds, and for all break options, regardless of the BC. In the Fiscal Year To Date column, the "Net(Surplus)/Deficit", and the "Cash Effect of Other Activity" are added to the "Prior-Year Cash Position (Surplus)/Deficit" to provide the "Cumulative Cash Position (Surplus)/Deficit." In the Project To Date columns, the "Net(Surplus)/Deficit" and the "Cash Effect of Other Activity" are added together. Since this is the project to date balance, there is no "Prior-Year Cash Position (Surplus)/Deficit" to be added in: it is already the "Cumulative Cash Position (Surplus)/Deficit."
In contrast, the 10x.ORG reports suppress the prior-year cash position in certain situations. Therefore, the section at the bottom will not be the same for 10x and 2xx reports run for the same orgs and funds.
Last Page Of The Report:
On the last page of every report additional pieces of important information are provided. We recommend that you keep this parameters page with the report to document what the report includes.
The parameters used to request the report are printed on the last page as confirmation of what was requested. If the account combinations returned to you in the report are not what you expected, the report parameters list is a useful first place to start. At a minimum, you can verify the range of values you provided at the time you submitted the request.
REPORT BREAK - RESOLVED PARAMETERS
The list provided here represents the list of values within the range you provided as Report Parameters that passed security verification. When a report is submitted, ORGanization parameters that were provided are compared against your BEN security profile. All ORGanizations in the range that match your profile will be returned to you in the report.
This is a good second place to look if you did not get the results you expected. Compare the list of ORGanizations in this list against the parameter range you provided. If an ORGanization is missing, chances are it does not exist in your security profile.
ORG PARENT OVERLAP DIAGNOSTIC
If you used org parent processing in this report, a third section will appear that shows the orgs that were included in each parent, and whether any of the underlying orgs were included in more than one parent in this report. For advice on what to do if you have overlaps, see http://www.budget.upenn.edu/rcm/org_parent.shtml
