Project Classifications and Balance Calculations

The Project Classifications table shows project class categories and project class codes.

PPM Balances for non-sponsored projects are calculated differently depending on the project classification. Projects for annual operations are reported on a year-to-date (YTD) basis, while projects funded one-time or irregularly are reported on an inception-to-date (ITD) basis. The balances calculations and project classifications are shown below.

Balance Calculations

GL Balance Calculations:

  • Beginning Balance (net of all prior year activity, including capital assets) + YTD Resources +/- YTD Non-Operating Transfers – YTD Expenses – YTD Capital Assets = Ending Balance
  • Ending Balance – Commitments – Payroll Projections = Balance Net of Commitments and Projections
Non-Sponsored PPM Balance Calculations (will be driven by Project Class Categories & Class Codes):
  • Projects for recurring annual operations:
    • Budget - YTD Costs - Commitments = Balance
  • Projects funded one-time or irregularly (e.g. faculty startup, gift funds):
    • Budget - ITD Costs - Commitments = Balance
  • Service agreements:
    • Budget - ITD Costs - Commitments = Budget Balance
    • Contract Revenue - ITD Costs - Commitments = Revenue Balance
