Ongoing budgetary information can be viewed using a report called "Expense Report Current Year Only". This report shows the current appropriations (budget), year to date expenses, encumbrance (open PO's), and the final encumbered balance (how much is left to spend in that key. This report shows only the information from the current year reported and does not reflect total cash expenditures.
If anyone views a regular "Expense Report" from the Auditor's office it will show different results as it includes current appropriations plus prior year encumbrance (carry over bills from previous year to be paid this year). This report does Show total actual cash spent in the year including that owed from previous years. This report does not show a good picture of the budget which is why we recommend the "Expense Report Current Year Only".
Appropriations are made for each major line of the report but not the subheadings. They are made to 7100, not 7111, 7112, etc. Each key with a subheading will draw from the base key above making the total in that overall key in the final line.
The keys may seem confusing at first but follow this basic formula 01-0500-57232, 01 (fund) 0500 (department) 5 (expense) 72 (contractual expense) 32 (printing and reproduction). This key is the General Fund, Auditors office, expense relating to contractual purchase of printing and reproduction. The key for all funds and subheadings can be downloaded here. Key_Description.pdf
To see all prior years expenses in an easily readable format please view "Expense Report 2005-2017 available on the Home page or Auditors Reports page.
