PREFACE

I.    Introduction

1.    This booklet has been produced for budget holders who are responsible for
      ensuring that the Council‟s policies and spending plans reflected in the
      budget are met.

2.    The attached budget reports show the budgets for which you have been
      recorded as being the responsible officer and are separated into
      controllable budgets and the Corporate Recharges Budgets. If there are
      errors in the budgets you have been sent please let us know.

II.   Financial Management

1.    The Council‟s Financial Procedure Rules set out the framework which the
      Council uses to manage its financial affairs; they set out levels of
      responsibility and give authority to the Mayor, Cabinet, Members and
      Officers. With reference to this budget report, these detail that it is the
      responsibility of Directors and Budget Holders to:

              A.31 Operate sound financial management of their allocated
              budget and only commit the Council to expenditure where there is
              sufficient funding available.

              A.32 Control income and expenditure against approved budgets
              and to report quarterly to Cabinet on the latest forecast budget
              position.

              A.33 Delegate authority to manage budgets to an appropriate level
              of management and thereby create and maintain a budget holder
              structure. Directors should review the performance of managers in
              delivering their budget holder role.

      The full document can be accessed using the following link:

                                       1
2.     The Council‟s Financial Ledger (JD Edwards EnterpriseOne) provides the
       full budgetary control facilities, i.e. Budget Monitoring Reports and online
       screen enquiries containing actuals, estimates, commitments, profiles and
       variances.

3.     In order to help and assist budget holders in utilising these reports, the
       Corporate Recharges are shown separately after the Controllable budgets.
       You should review all the Controllable budgets included on the report and
       ensure that they are allocated to the correct subjective codes in
       accordance with the service expenditure plans for the financial year
       2010/11. A brief summary of how to print off a monitoring statement from
       the Financial Ledger has been included at Appendix B.

4.     As the nominated budget holder or budget supervisor, you will be sent a
       monitoring print every month (within 10 days of the month end). You should
       review this report and ensure you are aware of all the items in the report.
       Should you require assistance with understanding your report please
       contact the Services Financial Management (SFM) Team.

5.     Working with the SFM Team you will be required to project the year end
       outturn figure including staffing, running costs and any income. This
       information is used to project the year end position for your Directorate and
       the Council as a whole. This is reported to the Directorate Management
       Team for financial management purposes. On a quarterly basis a report is
       produced for Executive Board, Cabinet and Overview & Scrutiny
       Management Committee, which summarises this information.

III.   Training

1.     The Financial Management Training has been reviewed and will be
       available from June 2010; further details will be provided on the Intranet in
       the near future:

2.     A Finance Manual has also been produced to help all those using finance
       information to undertake basic and complicated tasks in a consistent and
       professional manner. It is available on the finance intranet site or by
       clicking the link below.

2.    Training in the use of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has already been
      provided to over 500 staff across the authority. Please note that as a
      security measure if any user does not access the system for 100 days, the
      user may be removed from the system. If you require any training do not
      hesitate to contact the OneWorld team.

IV.   Changes to 2010/11 Budget

1.    Within the 2010/11 the following items have been included: -

             Pay & Rewards budget changes including:
                  -   Additional funding has been allocated for general fund
                      budgeted posts where the grade has increased as a result
                      of the Pay & Rewards Review
                  - Additional budget has also been allocated for general fund
                      budgeted posts due to receive an increment in 2010/11,
                      where it is a direct result of the Pay & Rewards Review and
                      otherwise would not have occurred.
                  - The general fund meal abatement budgets have been
                      increased to cover the additional cost of continuing to
                      provide a meal without any contribution from the employee.
                  - The general fund metroclean budgets have been
                      increased to reflect the additional cost following the Pay &
                      Rewards Review.
                  - The general fund car allowances budgets have been
                      reduced to reflect the revised payments.
             The pay budgets have not been increased for an estimated Pay
              Award except those that have previously been agreed e.g.
              Teachers Pay Award.
             0.2% increase in pensions contributions
             Approved growth and efficiencies (see Annex E to the financial
              strategy for the detailed list of changes – link provided below)
             Increases in line with the relevant inflation indices




                                        3
2.      Further information on the changes to your budgets as a result of the
        2010/11 Budget process is available either from your Director or relevant
        Finance Officer.

V.      Financial Strategy

1.      A copy of the approved Financial Strategy for 2010/11 to 2013/14 is
        available on the Finance page of the intranet.

        Financial Strategy 2010/11 - 2013/14 | Doncaster Council

VI.     Help & Support

1.      Help and support with any financial management issue can be obtained
        from the Services Financial Management Team. The OneWorld Team can
        assist with any OneWorld related issue. See Appendix A for the Contacts
        list.

VII.    Corporate Recharges

1.      Further information on the service received and the method of calculation
        been produced at Appendix D. It should be noted that you may also receive
        internal recharges for services within your department or accommodation
        charges. Details of the charges and the method of calculation are available
        if you require them.

2.      In general, Corporate Recharges will not change throughout the year and
        therefore you should not amend these budget lines. These do not directly
        affect you as a budget holder, but should be utilised where you wish to
        calculate the full cost of your service, possibly for benchmarking exercises.

3.      Information in respect of Corporate Recharges to Trading Services and St
        Leger Homes have already been agreed and separately published.

VIII.   Coding Information

1.      It is important that you ensure that coding is accurate and hence some of
        the common codes used have been listed on pages 9-12. If you are
        uncertain about which code to use please contact your SFM team.

                     Running a Budget Holder Report

This report gives individual Budget Holders a comparison between the budget and
actual costs (including commitments) to date by cost centre and subjective. It also
shows the full years budget and calculates the proportion of the budget to date that
has been spent in percentage terms.

The following information explains to Budget Holders how to run the report on One
World:

1.      Select the „General Ledger’ menu, and then select ‘Standard Reports’,
        then „Monitoring Reports’.

2.      Click on „Cost Centre & Subjective – Budget Actuals’ and the following
        screen will be displayed




3.      On the default tab a Fund must be entered. Then enter either the Budget
        Holder reference or the Cost Centre to and from that you would like your
        report to include. You can also specify individual Subjectives or a
        Subjective range.

4.      Click on the Process tab and enter the Period Number that you want to run
        your report up to and the Fiscal year (Financial year).

5.      Click OK and the following screen will be displayed.




                                         7
6.    Click OK

7.    You will now receive a message stating that your report has been
      submitted. Click OK

8.    Select ‘View Job Status’ which is located at the top of the menu screen.

9.    Double click in the box to the left of the server DMBC.JDEENT.

10.   If the job you have run has anything other that D, the report is still
      processing, keep clicking the „Find‟ icon until the status column reads D.
      The report is then complete.

11.   Select the job that you have run by single clicking the box to the left and
      select ‘View PDF’ from the Row drop down menu. The report will appear
      on the screen. If it is correct, click on the print icon. If not, close the print
      screen and continue to click on the close icons until you return to the
      Monitoring Reports screen.

  If you encounter any problems while running a report on JD
Edwards EnterpriseOne, please contact the Treasury & Systems
          Development Team 737675 for help or advice.

                                                                        Appendix C

                Financial Coding – Explanatory Notes


1.     Format of Income & Expenditure (I&E) Codes

       I & E codes are made up of two parts: -

                              ****** / . / ****
                              Objective / . / Subjective

       On OneWorld the two parts are separated by a full stop.

1.1.   Objective or Cost Centre – the first part of the code is known as the
       objective and is the unique code of who has spent or received the money,
       e.g. the school or leisure centre or team the money relates to. The
       objective is also referred to as the Cost Centre. Note the number of
       characters or digits in the objective can vary. Previously the first digit
       provided a simple indication of the Directorate, but following the restructure
       it has not been possible to amend the codes to reflect the new directorates.

1.2.   Budget Holders should be familiar with their own unique cost centre (or
       codes if managing more than one cost centre) and use this for coding all
       invoices or raising debtors for services.

1.3.   Behind the objective part of the code is a longer coding structure to enable
       income and expenditure to be collated in reports in different ways. For
       further information please contact your Services Financial Management
       Team.

2.     Structure of the Subjective Part of the Code

2.1.   The subjective or code ending part of the code is the last four digits and
       provides information on what the money relates to e.g. salary payments,
       purchase of equipment or rental income.

2.2.   The subjective part of the code can be subdivided into the “sub” code and
       the “detail” code: -
                                   ** /     **
                                  Sub / Detail


                                         9
2.3.   The first two digits show the categories of spend (these categories tend to
       follow statutory accounting practice as advised by CIPFA). The detail
       provides specific detail about the type of spend or income.

2.4.   It is important to remember to code your spend or income accurately or to
       the best fit (we are trying to reduce the number of codes held on the
       database, to keep it simple and save costs). It has come to our attention
       that budget holders sometimes code spending to where they have the
       budget. Good practice would be to code the spend accurately and move
       (vire) budgets to that code to minimise variances in your budget monitoring
       report.

2.5.   A summary of the categories and some of the main sub and detail codes
       used is as follows (please contact your Service Financial Management
       Team for further codes): -
