Rehash of methods to dispurse budget allocations
Posted: Wed Dec 08, 2010 9:57 am
Last night I was tinkering with some spreadsheets to figure out how to adjust the unit allocation percentages to get each unit in our stake the exact amount of money the Stake President determined they need. We are trying to follow the encouragement to use the new system (i.e., instead of just entering zeros and cutting checks), but have a problem. Several of the small units in our Stake, for a variety of reasons, need more than 100% of the budget funds their attendance generates. This of course cannot be done with the new system, so I am going to have to cut checks to these units anyway. Given this fact, along with all the other hassles and problems associated with using the new method, we are inclined to just go back to square one and enter zeros and cut checks for everyone.
