Administration subcategory

Postby bakebread » Thu Nov 03, 2011 9:19 pm

I know it was used by HQ as part of the October 2010 transition to CUBS, but what is the current purpose of the Administration budget subcategory?

We use that category for all our unit administrative expenses and as a place to assign expenses for which there is no category. Some units may use the Miscellaneous category for these expenses.

The Administration category also gives us a place to create subcategories that, in our opinion, do not fit under any of the other provided categories and are ward administration expenses. The sub-categories we have created are Bishop's Contingency, Building Shared Expenses, and Clerk's Office.

The latter two are self explanatory. The first is where funds are held for reallocation by the bishop for unplanned budget expenses in any of the categories with a budget allocation. Since we initially allocate budgets to the nearest tens place, it also gives us a place to put the remainder so that the "Difference" line in "View/Edit Budget" is zero. It is not necessary for the Difference to be zero but we like to have it that way.

Nothing is automatically billed to this category so what it is used for can be locally defined. The CUBS team tried to come up with some common yet generic budget categories. If Administration fits an expense category you use, great. If not, that's fine too. There is no requirement to use it.
